A traditional sausage and pie manufacturer has undergone a management buyout. The management team is buying Kent-based WA Turner from parent company Prize Foods Group, with backing from Lloyds TSB Commercial Finance.

The 150-year-old company is a leading supplier of sausages and pies to a number of major multiples.

Mark Roberts, MD of WA Turner, said: “Combined, the management team has over 75 years of experience working in the chilled, frozen sausage and savoury bakery products industry. We feel we are in the best position to take the business forward as we have the expert knowledge of the company and its workforce.”
