Hall’s Brand to Stay in Scotland

Hall’s Brand to Stay in Scotland

The Hall’s brand has been acquired by Browns Food Group from its Dutch owner VION. In acquiring the Hall’s brand, created by David A Hall in 1932, Browns, established in 1885, has effectively merged two of Scotland’s oldest family owned food businesses.

The move by Browns, which is headquartered in Kirkconnel, Dumfriesshire, will see the retention of the Hall’s production in Scotland, and the van sales operation will continue to operate throughout Scotland. Fifty Hall’s employees will be retained in that area.

Browns finance director Alan Hill says: “We are very pleased to have secured the future of one of Scotland’s best known brands, and to have brought it safely under private Scottish ownership.”

He adds: “We intend to invest heavily in the Hall’s brand, and we will preserve and increase its reputation by offering food that is both good quality and good value. This will also lead to job creation and security going forward.”

Browns Food Group is one of the UK’s leading food manufacturers, supplying retail, food service and wholesale markets. The group operates from seven manufacturing sites in Scotland and England, producing and supplying an extensive range in cooked meats, pre-sliced and whole joints, ready meals, salmon, poultry products, convenience foods and a variety of delicatessen items.
