ABP’s by-product division, Advanced Proteins, has acquired John Pointon and Sons’ animal by-products and proteins business for an undisclosed amount.

Located in Staffordshire, on an 80-acre site, John Pointon and Sons is the largest single site by-product and pet food ingredient supplier in the UK with a capacity of 400,000 metric tons. It is a family owned business and has been in operation for over 40 years.  The business employs over 200 people.

ABP has been involved in the animal by-products business for over 50 years and this division operates separately and independently from ABP’s fresh beef division.

ABP Food Group CEO Frank Stephenson said: “We are pleased to welcome management and staff from John Pointon and Sons to ABP Food Group. It will be very much business as usual and we look forward to further developing and growing the business.”

John Pointon and Sons CEO Martin Pointon added: These are very exciting times and all the team here at John Pointon and Sons is very much looking forward to becoming part of the ABP Group of companies. This is a fantastic opportunity to further develop what is already one of the market leading animal by-products facilities in the UK.”
