ABP purchase SM Farm

Advanced Proteins, the by-product arm of ABP, has taken over the Staffordshire-based John Pointon and Sons animal by-products and proteins business.

The family-owned English company, which has been operating for more than 40 years, is the largest single-site by-product and pet food ingredient supplier in the UK.

The business, with a capacity of 400,000 metric tonnes and a workforce of more than 200 people, was sold for an undisclosed sum.

Frank Stephenson, CEO of ABP Food Group, said: “We are pleased to welcome management and staff from John Pointon and Sons to ABP Food Group.

“It will be very much business as usual and we look forward to further developing and growing the business.”

Pointon and Sons CEO Martin Pointon said: “These are very exciting times and all the team here at John Pointon and Sons is very much looking forward to becoming part of the ABP group of companies.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to further develop what is already one of the market leading animal by-products facilities in the UK.”
