Cranswick purchases Yorkshire pig farm
Cranswick PLC has announced the acquisition of Yorkshire-based Buckle family’s pig farming and rearing operation.
The company also purchased the Buckle’s 50% share of the White Rose Farms Limited pig production joint venture set up by Cranswick and the Buckle family in 2018.
This is the second investment from Cranswick this year, having also secured a deal for Packington Pork Limited from the Mercer family, a pig farming and rearing operation that specialises in the production of British free range and outdoor bred pigs.
Adam Couch, CEO of Cranswick, commented: “I am pleased to announce today’s transaction, which further reinforces our strategic commitment to supporting and growing the British pig farming industry. We have worked with the Buckle family for over 25 years and we are delighted to welcome Rick, as Managing Director of White Rose Farms, and the wider team to Cranswick.”
