Kitwave snaps up foodservice supplier

Kitwave Group, the UK-based delivered wholesale business, has acquired M.J. Baker Foodservice Limited, the independent foodservice supplier.

Founded in 1999 and based in Newton Abbott, Devon, M.J. Baker offers over 3,500 products in ambient, chilled and frozen foods, together with alcohol, confectionery and non-food items. The leading brands are complemented by a range of products under the Bakers Best Buy lines.

M.J. Baker will be incorporated into Kitwave’s existing Foodservice division which currently has the existing trading operations of H.B. Clark & Co. (Successors) Limited and David Miller Frozen Foods Limited.

Paul Young, Chief Executive Officer of Kitwave, said: “The acquisition of M.J. Baker is an excellent addition to our Foodservice division and expands the Group’s nationwide reach into the South West. M.J. Baker is renowned for providing a quality delivered solution to its customers, a key part of the Kitwave Group ethos.

“I am delighted to welcome the M.J. Baker team to Kitwave and we look forward to continuing to build our nationwide foodservice offering as part of our growth strategy.”

David Brind, Chief Financial Officer of Kitwave, said: “This acquisition significantly adds to Kitwave’s Foodservice division and extends the reach of our services into an important region of the U.K. The integration of M.J. Baker into the Group’s Foodservice division complements our existing operations and reflects Kitwave’s strategic direction and expansion ambitions, both through acquisition and organic growth.”
