The Wolverhampton company, which entered administration on May 14, had been under strain following a reduction in sales on the abbatoir side of the business.

The administrators from professional services group Leonard Curtis have sold certain assets to Gill Meat Products – a connected company – to ensure the continuation of meat production.

Joint administrators Mike Dillon and Rochelle Schofield said they had managed to save 65 jobs with the sale.

The Wolverhampton business – which has been operating for over 80 years – had suffered significant losses in the previous year.
