Premier Foods plc, headquartered outside London, UK, is one of the UK’s largest food producers and manufactures some of Britain’s most popular food brands including Mr. Kipling cakes, Loyd Grossman sauces and Bisto gravy. The company which is listed on the London Stock Exchange also manufactures products for the food service industry, as well as supplying ingredients to food producers and own-label products to the UK's major food retailers. Following the March 2009 investment by Warburg Pincus, the company installed a new management team that has focused on streamlining the Company’s operations and divesting non-core divisions. Gavin Darby, former CEO of Cable & Wireless plc, joined Premier as CEO in February 2013 and is continuing the strategy of focusing on “Power Brands”, improving sales and marketing execution, and further streamlining the cost structure following the recent disposals.
