Richard Whittaker Ltd are pleased to announce the acquisition of Yeung’s Chinese Foods
The Richard Whittaker family of brands continues to grow with the company’s purchase of the popular Yeung’s Chinese Foods. The acquisition adds even more diversity to our range of brands that already includes Pure Gluten Free and James Brown & Co.
Based in Coatbridge, Lanarkshire in Scotland, Yeung’s Chinese Foods has a proud history as a family-run business just like ourselves. The company has been producing and supplying quality Chinese Food products to retail and catering establishments for over 25 years.
Some of the brand’s most popular products such as the Chinese Gravy Mix and the Chinese Curry Mix can be found in retailers such as Morrisons, Tesco, Co-Op and Bookers. Our aim is to continue that and uphold the proud traditions of these much-loved products.
From an organisational stand-point, three of Richard Whittaker Ltd‘s management have taken control of Yeung’s with Alan, Sue and Thom Rigby officially becoming directors of the company in April. The company’s previous director, Tony Yeung, has retired from his full-time role in the business. However, it has been agreed that Tony will serve as a consultant over the next 4 years to help ensure a smooth transition.
The day-to-day operations will remain largely the same with production of the products and existing supply arrangements remaining in Scotland.We will also be launching a brand new website for the brand over the coming months. The new site will include recipes created around Yeung‘s famous sauces and mixes. The future is very exciting for everyone at Richard Whittaker Ltd and Yeung’s Chinese Foods!
