Acquisition of the assets of Great British Chefs by Food Publishing Ltd
Cripps is delighted to have advised Food Publishing Ltd on the acquisition of the assets of Great British Chefs Ltd (in administration). The company, predominantly known for its websites, www.greatbritishchefs.com and www.greatitalianchefs.com, publishes over 3000 recipes from some of the world’s greatest chefs as well as producing the popular Great British Chefs Cookbook featuring 120 recipes from sixty of the best chefs cooking in Britain.
Chairman of Food Publishing Ltd, Mark Bucknall, commented ‘Working with the exceptionally creative and talented Chief Brand Director, Mark Gandy, we hope to launch a new chapter for Great British Chefs building on its first class reputation, depth of content, and relationships with over 200 of the finest chefs.“
He went on to say, “The Cripps team explained the process, stayed on track, and debated fairly on some contentious issues from the other side. The team managed to get the transaction closed essentially within four business days. With everyone working from home this was an excellent result.” The Cripps team consisted of John Kirkwood (corporate), Phil Bilney and Elliot Fry (commercial).
