Snowbird bought by own management

Food manufacturer Snowbird has been bought by its management team in a move that has been well received by its employees.

The announcement came after the company had seen four owners come and go in the past six years, which led Philip Paul and Albert McGovern, who joined the business in 1981 and 1995 respectively, to buy it.

Snowbird manufactures cooked and frozen sausages, meatballs and other comminuted meat products.

Paul and McGovern said: “The staff are right behind us. There were cheers when the announcement was made, because they recognise the future for Snowbird is in Enfield and they know they can contribute to an exciting period of profitable growth.”

Running the business with them is sales director Roy Anderson who joined the business in 2000. He said: “Foodservice buying groups, frozen food wholesalers and ready-meals manufacturers like our ideas, our quality and our convenience, and we will be able to give them more of that in the immediate future.”
