Receiver Grant Thornton is finalising the sale of the Devon Desserts Group as a going concern. It is in final negotiations with one of six bidders after fielding 40 expressions of interest in the chilled and frozen yogurts and desserts company, which is continuing to trade normally. Newton Abbot based Devon Desserts and BG Foods had a turnover of £40m, but ran out of working capital this year due to competitive pressures. Joint receiver Duncan Swift said: "Negotiations are at a delicate stage. We hope to complete the sale imminently." {{NEWS }}
