Suttons Seeds Announces Management Buy Out (MBO)
Posted by Suttons Staff on 12 December 2014 09:04 AM

Fresh new beginnings for the 208 year old company.

The Suttons team are delighted to announce that former owner Limagrain through Vilmorin & Co, and the Torbay Council, with the Torbay Development Authority, have facilitated and supported the MBO of Suttons Consumer Products Ltd effective December 1, 2014. This is a significant agreement that combines the desire for Limagrain to find the right future for Suttons and the goals of Torbay Council to retain and promote business in the area. This deal ensures continued employment and growth for Suttons as well as providing a springboard for new business.

Multinational Limagrain has grown rapidly in recent years to be a world leader in the seeds and cereals industry. The direct to consumer activity of Suttons, became less central to their expanding core business and focus. However, as a French cooperative of grower farmers with a strong Corporate Social Responsibility ethos, Limagrain sought a strategic solution that would optimize the future prospects of Suttons, especially for its employees and their families. They have actively contributed to the MBO.

The MBO, lead by David Robinson, for 3 years Commercial Director now appointed Managing Director and Rufus Roberts, Operations Director, heralds a new era for Suttons Consumer Products and their team. Limagrain, while no longer a direct shareholder, will remain an important trading partner. Bernard Bejar, recent and popular MD of Suttons who was instrumental in the transition towards the MBO since early this year, will return to Limagrain in France.
