McIntosh of Dyce will focus on premium and licensed ready meals under a new management team which brought parts of the business out of receivership this week. Receivers hived off McIntosh's ready meals and sausage interests to a management team led by new md Maureen Hepburn. Former md Sandy McDougall, now operations director, sales and marketing director Mina MacKenzie and technical director Trish Winchester complete the consortium. Hepburn said: "We will relocate the ready meals and sausages businesses to a new purpose-built factory in Aberdeen in the next six months. We still have supply contracts with all the supermarkets and will be looking to extend our ranges with them." Lanarkshire-based Bell Bakers is understood to be negotiating with receivers to buy the bakery side of the McIntosh business ­ with a sale due to be finalised by the end of the month. Hepburn said: "While negotiations continue, we will liaise with customers to make sure bakery orders are met." Receiver KPMG Corporate Recovery was appointed in February after McIntosh of Dyce's British Colombian parent company Sepp's Gourmet Foods withdrew its financial support. {{NEWS }}
