The Compleat Food Group

Following their acquisition by PAI Partners earlier this year, Addo Food Group and Winterbotham Darby have announced that they will come together under a new company name – The Compleat Food Group.

Paul Monk, executive chair of The Compleat Food Group, said: “This is an exciting moment for the group; we will be able to better serve our customers, provide more opportunities for our colleagues and offer a greater range of products. Our new name demonstrates the group’s passion for food whilst providing a platform for future category growth and acquisitions.

“The new group matrix structure enables us to benefit from a dual focus on our key product categories and functional expertise and reflects our desire to create the best possible combination of the former Addo and Winterbotham Darby businesses, bringing us all together as one company.”

The move will see the two businesses come together under a matrix organisational structure, helping the group to strengthen its plans to become the UK’s No1 Chilled Prepared Food Company, with an extensive product portfolio across chilled savoury pastry, continental meats, olives & antipasti and a rapidly expanding plant-based range.
