Jigsaw Foods Develops Recipe for Success Following £4 Million in Funding from Santander

Nottinghamshire-based Jigsaw Foods Ltd, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of sauces and frozen sauce products, has built an additional manufacturing unit and plans to hire more staff to cater for strong growth following £4 million in funding from Santander Corporate & Commercial.

Nottinghamshire-based Jigsaw Foods Ltd, has built an additional manufacturing unit and plans to hire more staff to cater for strong growth following £4 million in funding from SCCB. The business, whose customer base includes high street restaurants and major food manufacturers from across the U.K, also plans to expand its business operations in the US.
Established following the purchase of DF Manufacturing in 2008, Jigsaw Foods specialises in the manufacture and supply of sauces, marinades and dressings to the food service sector and business-to-business. The fast-growing manufacturing firm produces a host of sauces including mayonnaise, fresh marinades, dressings and sauces from Hoi Sin to Hollandaise and Chipotle to Chocolate. Jigsaw Foods also uses cryogenic technology to produce portions of frozen sauces and flavoured butters.
Following a period of strong growth in the UK, Jigsaw Foods, which was recently included in the London Stock Exchange Group’s ‘1,000 companies to inspire Britain’1, has invested significantly in establishing a US subsidiary operation to support one of its key clients. The deal will see the firm supply locations across the US and Canada.
Nick Angus, Finance and Operations Director of Jigsaw Foods Ltd, said: “We look forward to working closely with the team at Santander Corporate & Commercial as we continue the development of new products and the expansion of our manufacturing capacity in the UK. In particular, the deal in North America represents a very exciting opportunity for the firm, and the support from Santander has been instrumental to this. The funding facility will also allow us to negotiate more beneficial terms with existing suppliers – increasing profitability of the business.”
Martin Brummitt, Relationship Director at Santander Corporate & Commercial, said: “Jigsaw Foods has developed a clear strategy for growth, and we’re delighted to be supporting this fantastic company as it expands further. One of the great strengths of the firm is its ability to respond quickly to short-term client demands, with short production runs made possible due to investment in premium production equipment, and with the opening of its additional manufacturing facility, it is clear that Jigsaw will continue to succeed both here and internationally.”
