Breaking news: Buyer sought for Gb Plange

06 November, 2012

Gb Plange UK has been put up for sale, the ingredients supplier has confirmed exclusively to British Baker.

The Runcorn-based business, in Cheshire, is currently part of the Werhahn Mühlen Group, which operates throughout Europe, as well as in selected overseas markets, including China.

It employs 18 people, and supplies both the craft and industrial sector with a wide range of bakery ingredients and technical know-how.

Marie Parnell, general manager UK, said: “The board of the Werhahn Group has initiated a process to evaluate strategic options for its European Bakery Ingredients business.

“This business includes the Gb Plange companies operating in western and southern Europe as well as the Diamant businesses in Austria and eastern Europe. The result of this process is likely to be a divestment of the entire Bakery Ingredients Group.”

The news follows similar divestment proposals by CSM Global, which is looking to sell its Bakery Supplies business to focus on bio-ingredients.
