Gressingham acquires new business

In October 2023 The Gressingham Group acquired the long-established business of Ken Briggs Ltd. This business will be managed by the team at JF Edwards on Smithfield market.

The business is based in Market Raisen Lincolnshire and supplies meat to a wide range of customers across the East Midlands and Lincolnshire. Originally specialising in poultry it has broadened its offering in recent years.

It is a long established and profitable business and has been owned by the same family for some 70 years. Ken Brigg’s father established the business and Ken will continue to run the business for the next 18 months when he plans to retire.

William Buchanan commented ‘this is a great acquisition strengthening our offering in wholesale meat distribution and the business will fit well within our Smithfield market business’.
