BWG Group has announced that it has agreed terms to acquire Heaney Meats, a large supplier of beef, lamb, poultry, pork and bacon to the foodservice sector in Ireland.
The transaction is subject to approval from the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission.
"The business will be a great addition to BWG and will further broaden our expanding offering to the foodservice sector," said Leo Crawford, Group CEO, BWG Group.
The company, which was founded by Shayne and Kenneth Heaney in 1996, has annual sales of approximately €24 million and employs 75 people at its facility in Galway.
The business has been the recipient of multiple industry awards and has developed well-invested supply chain operations that include a fleet of 25 refrigerated vehicles.
Generations of the Heaney family have been master butchers stretching back over 300 years.
Following its acquisition, Heaney Meats will continue to be led by Shayne and Kenneth Heaney.
The group said that the acquisition of Heaney Meats is consistent with BWG’s future ambition and strategy for growth and follows the Group’s latest acquisitions of Corrib Food Products and 4 Aces Wholesale.
