The Nottingham Post's Top 200 Nottinghamshire Companies list showcases what the finest businesses in the region have to offer. Addo Food Group has continued to move up the list and this year features in 21st place.
Addo Food Group was recognised for its great growth and success moving into new categories following the acquisition of the chilled savoury pastry business of Kerry Foods which the judges felt gave the Group even greater depth and breadth in its category. Addo was also recognised for continuing to further invest in facilities, insight and innovation to develop its product set into chilled convenience categories. Addo also added the Walls Pastries and Millers brands to its portfolio which already consisted of Pork Farms, Bowyers, No G and Farmhouse.
In Nottingham the group has continued to experience success through its ‘Too Good To Be’ brand. Developed by Chef’s in Nottingham, the brand leads the way in the gluten free market as the first instance of gluten-free pastry to be produced on a large scale. The brand has continued to experience great success with major new business wins that have seen the products now being stocked in even more major retailers including Morrisons and Ocado.
Chris Peters, Group Managing Director at Addo Food Group, said: “We are delighted to be recognised as one of the Top 25 businesses in Nottinghamshire. Without the commitment and expertise of our employees here in Nottingham the business would not be the success it is today.
“The last 12 months have been incredibly exciting for Addo as we’ve grown the business and added some major new brands to our portfolio. Over the next 12 months we will continue to invest in our people and our sites and have lots of exciting opportunities for the future. With our great team on board we will continue to lead the way in chilled savoury pastry and expand our product range through innovation and consumer insight.”
