TSC Foods, the Scunthorpe-based manufacturer of the Glorious! premium chilled soup brand, has been acquired by Edward Billington and Son.
TSC Foods will continue to be led by David Bondi as managing director, Mandy Taylor as retail commercial director, and the current board at its Scunthorpe site.
Bondi said: “This is a fantastic move for TSC and we are delighted to join a family-owned company that is focused on the food sector. We have grown significantly over recent years with a focus on innovation, quality and service to all our customers and are proud to continue that success as part of a larger group.”
The Billington Group has been based in Liverpool since 1858 and is one of the UK’s largest, family-owned companies with a mix of businesses predominately in food and agriculture. TSC will join the group’s food division alongside current businesses including English Provender Company, Bar Foods and Billington Food Ingredients.
Chief executive of The Billington Group, Gary Blake, said: “This is a fantastic acquisition for the group. We believe that TSC Foods is a perfect fit for our strategic vision.
“This is an exciting time for both The Billington Group and TSC Foods as we look forward to successfully delivering our strong customer focus and growing the Glorious! brand.”
