Advisers help Browns Food Service's acquisition by the Brakes family

Accountants Murphy Salisbury advised Browns Food Service, which has been a
client since its inception, on its acquisition by the Brakes family. Brakes
includes M&J Seafood, Pauleys Fresh Produce and Wild Harvest.

Brakes Group bought Browns Food Service, a catering butcher, for an
undisclosed sum.

The deal provides Brakes Group, a leading food service business operating in

the UK, France, Ireland and Sweden, with another specialist business within its
portfolio.

Browns will continue to operate as a specialist business within the Brakes

Group, and will also continue to be managed by its current team, led by managing

director and founder Andrew Dalton.

Steve Smith, senior partner at Murphy Salisbury, said: ‘I am pleased to have
been able to assist in a deal which is hugely beneficial to both parties. As a
result, they will be able
to strengthen the service they can offer to customers.’

Andrew Dalton, managing director of Browns Food Service, said: ‘It is great
to be part of the Brakes Group. It is a very strong food service company and its
business strengths and expertise will help us to offer our customers excellent
products and service as well as providing new opportunities for the future.’

Ian Goldsmith, Brakes Group chief operating officer, said: “I am delighted
that through the acquisition of Browns Food Service, we are able to
significantly strengthen our meat and butchery offer to customers.’
