Oghma Partners LLP, the Food & Beverage focused corporate finance boutique, is pleased to announce a review of the UK produce sector and an analysis of M&A activity on a Pan-European basis.

The UK Produce sector is worth £12.5bn at RSP. Close to 100 companies operate in the UK market with activities ranging from value-added processing to distribution leveraging key sourcing skills. The size of the companies operating within the sector is broadly spread with 25%+ of the companies in the sector turning over more than £100mn.

On a Pan European basis there have been ten notable consolidators of the sector over the last five years. A significant amount of deal activity has been cross border and, given the still fragmented nature of the sector, more cross border deals can be expected in due course.
