Greencore moves into sushi
15 June, 2007
Greencore Sandwiches has bought sushi producer Sushi San, based in Crosby, Liverpool. Founded seven years ago, the business produces sushi under both the 'Sushi San' and customer own-brand labels.
The founders of the business will work with Greencore site director for Crosby, Graham Simpson, to ensure a smooth hand-over.Commenting on the move Di Walker, MD of Greencore Sandwiches, said: "This small but important step takes us into a new and complementary area to our existing sandwich and snack salads business. The sushi market is now worth in excess of £45 million and is growing at 48% year on year (source: Nielsen scan data). We believe Greencore can play a major part in its further development".
