The administrators for crisp and snack manufacturer Golden Wonder, which fell into administration two weeks ago, have revealed that they have received more than 60 expressions of interest from parties interested in buying the business.

Kroll said that it remained hopeful of finding a buyer for all or parts of the remaining business and would have a clearer view within the next couple of weeks.

The Grocer revealed last week that former CEO’s Paul Monk and Clive Sharpe, together with former finance director Steve Boyd were preparing a bid for the company.

Meanwhile, Kroll has also revealed that 197 staff at Golden Wonder’s manufacturing plant at Corby would be made redundant.

Providing further details on plans for the site, which was bought by crisp manufacturer Tayto last week, Kroll said that most of the company’s own label and Golden Lights production would transfer to Golden Wonder’s Scunthorpe site by close of play today (January 20).

It added that limited ongoing production for Golden Lights would continue at Corby for two to three weeks, with 15 people remaining at the site.
