Burton’s Biscuit Co is strengthening its capability and broadening its product portfolio with the acquisition of Paterson Arran, one of Scotland’s leading independent food companies. The acquisition introduces the Paterson’s shortbread brand into the Burton’s portfolio, along with leading foodservice biscuit and chutney brands, Brontë, Café Brontë and Arran Fine Foods.

Nick Field, chief executive of Burton’s Biscuit Co, says: “The acquisition is a further indication of our intent to increase our production capability, to extend our product offering and to continue growing our presence in the biscuit market. The move not only strengthens our branded proposition, Paterson Arran’s strength in foodservice and portion packing also unlocks significant new trading opportunities for our existing product portfolio.

In addition to shortbread, Paterson Arran manufactures a selection of biscuits, oatcakes, chutneys, relishes and preserves. The company employs around 200 people and runs two production facilities – the Royal Burgh Bakery in Livingston, West Lothian, which produces an award-winning range of shortbread, oatcakes, biscuits and cookies, and the Old Mill, Lamlash, Isle of Arran, which primarily produces a range of delicious chutneys, mustards and preserves.

The acquisition of Paterson Arran is the second major acquisition by Burton’s this year. In February the company completed the acquisition of premium sweet and savoury biscuit manufacturer, Thomas Fudge’s.

“This latest acquisition highlights that our owners, Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, are fully supportive of the journey we are on. They share our deep-rooted commitment to enhancing our baking credentials, to complementing our current portfolio with more top-quality products and to generating excitement in biscuits and the other categories in which Burton’s now has a presence,” says Nick Field.
