Rollits advises Zubrance on the sale of Quality Kernels

Rollits Food Group, the specialist food team of Rollits LLP (Rollits), is delighted to have advised Zubrance Limited (Zubrance) on the successful sale of its nut processing subsidiary, Quality Kernels Limited (Quality Kernels), to Idolwood Limited.

Quality Kernels is one of the UK's leading industrial nut processors and supplies a full range of high quality nuts, including organic and Fair Trade, to a blue chip customer base of leading food manufacturers.

Quality Kernels, which is based at Brierley Hill in the West Midlands, was acquired by Zubrance in 2007, also with the corporate finance and legal advisory support of Rollits.

Zubrance is a substantial food group which also includes New Ivory sauces in Elland, West Yorkshire, and Confection by Design in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

The purchaser also owns Petrow Food Industries, an important processor of nuts, dates and dried fruit in Perivale near London.

Zubrance Finance Director Adam Jones said: "We have worked well with Rollits for many years and are very pleased to have achieved a sale of the Quality Kernels business to a serious group. We wish them every success in the future."

The Rollits team was led by Food Group Director Julian Wild and Associate John Flanagan. Rollits is a Yorkshire commercial law firm with offices in Hull and York.

Julian Wild commented: "Rollits advised Zubrance on the acquisition of Quality Kernels in 2007 and we were very pleased to provide the corporate finance and legal advice on the successful sale of the company to another major trade player. We look forward to working with Zubrance as they grow their other businesses."
