June 18, 2018 ….for the second year running, chosen as one of the 1000 companies to inspire Britain for 2018. Created by London Stock Exchange Group, 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain is an annual celebration of some of the fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the UK.

In order to be selected as part of this impressive report, criteria requires firms to have demonstrated significant growth over three years and to have out-performed sector averages and peers, highlighting KK Fine Foods as one of the market leading food manufacturing companies in the UK.

September 12, 2017. KK Fine Foods Plc is happy to announce that it has officially entered into a strategic partnership with TER BEKE FOOD GROUP Nv based in Belgium to expand its supply of frozen ready meals and food solutions to the foodservice and retail marketplaces. The deal between the 2 companies sees Ter Beke buy an equity share in KK Fine Foods. The existing team, headed by Samir Edwards, Managing Director, will continue to manage the business going forward. KK recently completed the purchase of a 2nd manufacturing site of 60,000 sq ft adjacent to the existing site. The initial focus for the joint enterprise will be the design and build of Unit 107 Tenth Avenue over the next 12 months. The investment will allow KK to add an additional £40m plus of capacity over the next 2 years.

The link-up between the 2 companies will allow Ter Beke, who are specialists in the supply of lasagne and pasta based meals worldwide, the opportunity to enter the UK marketplace with the benefits of an established management team already in place.
