Bluefields Group acquires Ben Burgers

A majority stake of Ben Burgers, the producer and supplier, has been acquired by the Bluefields Group, run by entrepreneur Gary Haycock-West.

The burger company will still operate under its separate identity and brands, which include Kentish Gold Sausage, Joe Smokes American-style Ribs and Bluefields Meat.

It is hoped the investment in the group by Haycock-West will afford Ben Burgers immediate scalability and scope for growth.

He said: “Access to the corporate infrastructure, business expertise, buying power and financial respources within the group will provide Ben Burgers with a robust springboard to drive increased market penetration.”

Ben Burgers was launched in 1999.
