I have been informed that DBC Foodservice, which recently put itself up for sale following a challenging trading period, has gone into administration with Baker Tilly as the administrator.
The firm had a last reported turnover of £300m but made losses of more nearly £5m upto March 2011. The company employs 1000 people in 12 different locations. DBC Foodservice was previously called The Danish Bacon Company but now supplies a wider range of products, such as egg and cheese. The firm has a major contract with the Ministry of Defence to supply the armed forces.
No announcement has yet been made by the administrators but I have confirmed with Baker Tilly that they are appointed as the administrator. As such any enquiries should be directed to their Manchester office 0161 830 4000. When I know more I will update this blog.
update 28/3: Russell Cash from Baker Tilly has said ""We are in discussions with a number of interested parties, some of which are at an advanced stage. We are hopeful that we will be able to secure a future for certain areas of the business."
