Griffith Foods acquires The Flavourworks

Griffith Foods Strengthens Expertise with The Flavourworks – Now Part of The Griffith Foods Family.

Complimentary skills, expertise, and a collaborative culture make a strong partnership from the outset.


Griffith Foods, a global product development company specialising in food ingredients, is delighted to announce that it has acquired The Flavourworks – a UK market leader in premium added value food ingredients.


The deal will see The Flavourworks become part of the Griffith Foods European & African division, with sister sites in Belgium, Spain, UK and South Africa.


The Flavourworks is an innovative food ingredients supplier, manufacturing flavoured butters and oils, marinades, glazes, rubs and sauces for all major UK retailers and is expanding into food service markets.


For more than 100 years, Griffith Foods has enjoyed success as an innovative product development partner. It has a track record for market leading innovations, bespoke product development solutions and fast product turnaround. Griffith Foods partners with some of Europe’s largest food processors, retailers and QSR businesses.


Griffith Foods has ambitious growth plans, over the coming decade. This scale of growth relies on shared values, new technologies and partnerships to broaden knowledge, expertise and fuel innovation.


The Flavourworks proposition is very much aligned with Griffith Foods.  The culture and complimentary product offerings are well matched and both companies are collaborative forward thinkers with a track record for innovation and delivering bespoke customer solutions.


We are pleased to announce that there are no plans to make any changes and can now accelerate investments on both sites to build future capacity. This acquisition will add an additional manufacturing arm to the Griffith Foods’ infrastructure.


The Flavourworks has a warm, friendly, collaborative culture that mirrors Griffiths Foods own values, making this a strong partnership from the outset.


Chris Ormrod, Managing Director, The Flavourworks commented: “I’ve very much enjoyed getting to know the Griffith Foods team, they have a strong set of company values and a business culture which is very similar to what we have been developing here. This is the beginning of a whole new chapter for The Flavourworks team and for our customers. I know one thing for certain – there will be some very exciting new ingredient combinations on the way!”


Wim van Roekel, President Griffith Foods Europe & Africa added, “We are really pleased to welcome The Flavourworks team into Griffith Foods. We have long admired their strong customer focus and their product range allows us to develop the wider Griffith Foods offering and accelerate our European growth plans.”
