Adelie Foods acquired by HIG Europe

The leading sandwiches and snacks manufacturer, Adelie Foods has been acquired by HIG Europe for undisclosed terms.

The Heathrow-based firm, which has 2,800 staff at sites nationwide, serves a number of well-known food retailers such as Sainsbury’s and Boots, alongside several of the UK’s largest coffee shop chains.

The company has built a reputation as a provider of ultra-fresh sandwich products to supermarkets, coffee shops and the food service sector and prides itself on its in-house distribution of up to a million fresh sandwiches every day around the UK.

Adelie is also behind the popular sandwich brand URBAN eat. The group expects to reach nearly £300m turnover in the current financial year.
