Ellisons’ Corporate and Commercial team in Chelmsford led by Partner, Paul Forsyth advised S Thorogood and Sons (the “Buyer”) in relation to their acquisition of Rushtons the Chef’s Greengrocers, a fruit and vegetable supplier to many of London’s eateries. S Thorogood and Sons operate in markets at Covent Garden, Spitalfields and Western International and intend for the newly acquired business to operate under its established brand, with the support of both the Buyer and Classic Fresh Foods, the Buyer’s existing supplier business.

Paul Forsyth commented: “It has been a pleasure to work alongside Forward Corporate Finance in seeing this matter through to completion for two parties who have demonstrated how amicable a transaction can be. As a team, we are grateful to have had the opportunity to advise on this matter, and we wish both parties well for the future.”
