Meat processors in £150m merger
TWO of Britains biggest privately-owned meat processors, Dalehead Foods and Roach Foods, are to merge in a £150m deal.
The combined group, to be known as Flagship Foods, will have 2,400 employees and sales of £270m.
It will be the countrys second biggest supplier of pork, bacon and cooked meats to supermarkets after Unigate.
The new group is expected to float in three years.
