Vion UK Pork Business Renamed

The former Vion UK pork operation, which was recently the subject of a management buy-out, backed by Leeds-headquartered private equity firm Endless, has been renamed Karro Food Group.

The deal, which safeguarded 4,000 jobs, followed Vion’s announcement in November that it was selling its UK food operations to focus on its core food activities in the Netherlands and Germany and its global ingredients business.

Vion’s UK pork facilities are located at bases including Malton, Scunthorpe and Hull. The deal was led by Seamus Carr, managing director of Vion’s pork business unit, who is managing director of the new company.

Vion entered the UK in the late 1990s with the acquisition of Key Country Foods, followed by Tranfield and Grampian Country Food Group, supplying beef, lamb, pork and chicken products to food retailers, manufacturers and service providers.
