Food ingredients company Newly Weds Foods, whose UK headquarters are in West Yorkshire, has acquired Jigsaw Foods Ltd, a manufacturer of sauces and butters.

Jigsaw currently operates out of its primary facility in Shirebrook, Nottinghamshire as well as a second location in Lanham, Maryland (US) providing customized products including sauces, butters, dressings and spreads to all types of food manufacturers and food service operators across the UK and US. The Jigsaw Foods operation joins existing Newly Weds Foods UK sites located in Ossett, Banbury and Corby.

Charles T. Angell, President of Newly Weds Foods said: “The addition of Jigsaw Foods is
one more step in Newly Weds Foods strategy to grow the company’s global portfolio of liquid product capabilities.

“Along with the acquisition of liquids manufacturer Mullins Food Products just 18 months ago, Newly Weds is positioning itself very well to meet the needs and expectations of customers wanting to take advantage of this exciting flavor forward category.”
