The acquisition by Essex miller W&H Marriage and Sons of Micronized Food Products will enable Marriage to expand its range of animal foods and processed ingredients.
Micronized Food Products
manufactures a wide range of micronized food products at two sites, Driby Top in Lincolnshire and Northallerton in North Yorkshire. Marriage's Specialist Foods plans to trade from the Driby Top site as a wholly-owned subsidiary of W&H Marriage and Sons
The Northallerton site has not been sold and will continue unchanged, serving customers in the agriculture, equine, petfood and brewing sectors.
Marriage’s will maintain all the current products from Driby Top and intends to supply further products, services and opportunities for customers and suppliers in the future.
A strong operational partnership will remain between Marriage's and Micronized Food Products. Colin Miller, Managing Director of Micronized Food Products for the last 12 years, will continue to work across both businesses, along with other existing staff.
Combining the production capabilities of Driby Top with their existing site, Chelmer Mills in Chelmsford, will strengthen the Marriage’s ranges of poultry, equine and livestock feeds. It will also extend their offering to include additional processed and blended ingredients, and wild bird foods.
