Regal Food Expands Its Sweet Empire with New Acquisition

In a move that sweetens its dessert offerings, Regal Food Products Group Plc has recently acquired the renowned Yorkshire-based cake manufacturer, Love Handmade Cakes.

This strategic acquisition, completed in record time, comes just 24 months after the successful integration of premium dessert manufacturer, Just Desserts Yorkshire, into the Regal Food family. 

The undisclosed sum transaction promises to not only enrich Regal’s already impressive portfolio of bakery brands but also open up exciting opportunities for expansion and development in the food service industry and the new desserts segment.

The Sweet Legacy of Love Handmade Cakes

Founded in 2004 by a group of passionate bakers, Love Handmade Cakes, formerly known as Exquisite Handmade Cakes, has been a trusted name in the industry. The company has built its reputation on crafting a delectable range of over 100 cakes, traybakes, individual cake bars, and muffins. 

These tantalising treats have found their way into the hearts of food service wholesalers, cafes, distributors, and various other food service outlets, earning Love Handmade Cakes a loyal customer base that spans the nation.

Regal Food’s Dominance in Distribution

Regal Food Products Group Plc is no stranger to the food and drink distribution landscape. With a presence in over 3,000 retail outlets across the United Kingdom and exports to more than 40 countries, the addition of Love Handmade Cakes further strengthens its foothold in the industry. 

What’s more, Regal’s commitment to quality and innovation has made it a household name, and this latest acquisition is poised to enhance its reputation even further.

Strategic Vision for the Future

The CEO of Regal Food Group emphasised that long-term growth through strategic acquisitions is a cornerstone of their business strategy

By welcoming Love Handmade Cakes into their fold, they aim to provide customers with a diverse range of top-quality bakery products for both food service and retail. 

Furthermore, this move underscores their commitment to offering a robust mix of options for their clientele, ensuring that every craving is satisfied.

A Sweeter Future Ahead

But the acquisition’s significance goes beyond bolstering Regal Food’s existing offerings. Love Handmade Cakes brings fresh opportunities to introduce a new range of products, including wrapped flapjacks, cake bars, muffins, and other countertop favourites. 

The commitment to serving customers on all business levels remains unwavering, and this acquisition only enhances their ability to do just that.

A Synergy of Independence and Support

Despite the acquisition, Love Handmade Cakes will continue to operate as an independent business. 

However, it will enjoy the backing of Regal Food’s extensive resources and investments, ensuring that the brand can flourish while benefiting from the collective expertise of the group. 

Impressively, this strategic alliance promises a harmonious balance between independence and support, fostering an environment where innovation and creativity can thrive.

A Sweet Conclusion

Regal Food’s acquisition of Love Handmade Cakes is a significant step in their journey towards becoming a dominant force in the bakery and dessert segment. 

With a growing portfolio of brands that now includes Love Handmade Cakes, Regal Bakery, Yorkshire Baking Company, Just Dessert Yorkshire, and The Cake Emporium, the group is poised to deliver a wide array of top-quality products to its customers. 

What’s more, this strategic move reaffirms Regal Food’s commitment to offering unparalleled bakery delights for both food service and retail, promising a sweet future for all who indulge in their delectable creations. 

As they continue to expand their sweet empire, it’s clear that Regal Food Products Group Plc remains dedicated to providing customers with the finest in bakery excellence.
