Petrow Food Group, suppliers of specialised ingredients to the food industry, has invested more than £4 million in an 80,000 sq. ft. factory and warehouse facility at Haverhill, Suffolk. The 7.2 acre site, previously purpose built for food ingredients, is now officially open as the group completes a rebranding following the 2013 acquisition of Quality Kernels.
From this site, which has significantly upgraded the company’s processing and screening facilities, the Petrow Food Group will process dried fruit, coconut, date and nut products (excluding groundnuts) to meet the requirements of a growing list of clients in the UK and overseas.
Petrow Food Group is the new name for the business which includes Petrow Food Industries (PFI) and Quality Kernels Ltd.
“The new group combines PFI’s leading know-how in chopping, nibbing, pasting and slicing dried fruit with Quality Kernels’ expertise in processing and roasting of a full range of nuts and seeds in a peanut free environment,” says Ian Tatchell, Managing Director of Petrow Food Group. “This is in addition to the Group’s trading activities of these products, therefore the Petrow Food Group can now offer the complete package of both the trading and processing of nuts, seeds, coconuts, dates and dried fruit.”
