Meat product manufacturer Parkam Food Group has acquired sandwich and chilled filling manufacturer Freshway Foods after the West Midlands-based company went into administration.

Parkam has announced that Freshway Foods will now trade as Freshway Chilled Foods and combined group turnover will stand at around £140m.

Family business Freshway, run by Alan and Graham Wright, was reportedly acquired just hours after being placed into the hands of the administrator, BDO Stoy Hayward. The acquisition will bring a sandwich and sandwich filling facility, as well as a 250-strong workforce, to the Parkam Food Group.
