Premier Foods has completed the disposal of its vinegar and pickles business to Mizkan.

The £41m sale to the Japanese firm was announced on 15 June and includes the Sarson’s, Hayward’s and Dufraid brands.

Premier is concentrating on growing its eight Power Brands and divesting non-core business. At the beginning of the month it sold ethnic flour brand Elephant Atta to Associated British Foods for £34m.
