CHICAGO — Global food ingredients company Newly Weds Foods Inc. has acquired Jigsaw Foods Ltd., a leading manufacturer of sauces and butters.
United Kingdom-based Jigsaw operates out of its primary facility in Shirebrook, Nottinghamshire, but has a U.S. location in Lanham, Md. It provides customized products such as sauces, butters, dressings and spreads to food manufacturers and foodservice operators across the U.K. and U.S. The Jigsaw Foods operation joins existing Newly Weds Foods U.K. sites in Ossett, Banbury and Corby.
“The addition of Jigsaw Foods is one more step in Newly Weds Foods' strategy to grow the company’s global portfolio of liquid product capabilities,” said Charles Angell, president of Chicago-based Newly Weds Foods. “Along with the acquisition of liquids manufacturer Mullins Food Products just 18 months ago, Newly Weds is positioning itself very well to meet the needs and expectations of customers wanting to take advantage of this exciting flavor-forward category.”
Newly Weds Foods is a leader in the production of food coatings, seasonings, sauces and functional ingredients for the food processing and foodservice industries. In addition to 17 North American manufacturing facilities, Newly Weds now has 11 plants throughout the U.K., China, Australia, Thailand, the Philippines and New Zealand, with one location in India coming soon. All support customers in more than 80 countries.
