Anyone remember when community foods were purchased by mmb? Dad rang to try and speak to the MD to see if there were any dividends to be payed on the shares but alas they were two busy. Anyone know any more information? A long time before my time.
The main reason I think they bought the company was to fund any pension liabilities?


Seems a fairly profitable busines though
