Rotherham-based Underwood Meat Company Limited has completed its latest acquisition with the purchase of the Manor Farm Sausage Company Limited for an undisclosed sum.

The Manor Farm Sausage Company trades as Norsted Manor Meats and is a specialist butchery business based in Kent. Underwood Meat Company, which has been supplying the catering industry with high quality fresh meat products for more than 40 years, bought the business to complement its expanding Southern operation. 

Last year, Underwood Meat Company acquired St Albans-based wholesale butcher business, Butlers. In 2013, the Sheffield office of Irwin Mitchell also advised the acquisitive business on a deal with Country Park Foods which saw it acquire its Bramley Foods subsidiary. The deal resulted in the company expanding into a new site on Chesterfield’s Holmewood Industrial Park.
Matt Ainsworth, Corporate Partner and Real Estate Partner Tom Hall, both at the Sheffield office of law firm Irwin Mitchell also advised Underwood Meat Company on the latest transaction.

Expert Opinion
“Underwood Meat Company is an exciting business which continues to grow both organically and through acquisition. The addition of the Manor Farm Sausage Company represents another excellent purchase for the company which will no doubt enable it to continue building both market share as well as its reputation for high quality products and customer service. Irwin Mitchell has built up a strong and close working relationship with Underwood Meat Company and we look forward to supporting the business in the future.”
