Hall’s to stay in Scotland. January 2013
Hall’s has been acquired by Browns Food Group (Browns) from its Dutch owner Vion - it was announced today (Wednesday January 30) In acquiring the Hall’s brand, created by David A Hall in 1932, Browns, established in 1885, has effectively merged two of Scotland’s oldest family owned food businesses.
The move by Browns, which is headquartered in Kirkconnel, Dumfriesshire, will see the retention of the Hall’s production in Scotland, and the van sales operation will continue to operate throughout Scotland. Fifty Hall’s employees will be retained in that area. Browns Finance Director Alan Hill said:
“We are very pleased to have secured the future of one of Scotland’s best known brands, and to have brought it safely under private Scottish ownership. It is especially fitting that we agreed the deal so close to Burns Night, as Hall’s is one of the world’s largest suppliers of haggis.
“We intend to invest heavily in the Hall’s brand, and we will preserve and increase its reputation by offering food that is both good quality and good value. This will also lead to job creation and security going forward.”
