Over the years we’ve continued to innovate in beer and pubs, ensuring that we remain an independent family company at the forefront of the brewing and hospitality industry. Our pub estate has grown to over 200, stretching from Bristol to Exeter, London to Brighton and you can find our award-winning range of Badger bottled ales nationally in leading supermarkets and off licenses.
Farm animals mean business for BRF - Brasil Foods. Among the world's largest food companies, the Brazilian provider of fresh and frozen meats operates its own farms, slaughterhouses, animal-feed units, incubators, and processing plants. The company's lineup comprises three thousand-plus items, including chicken, pork, some beef and dairy, as well as a slew of processed foods (representing 60% sales), such as butter, cheese, desserts, ready-to-eat meals, pasta, and pizza. Products are sold under many brands -- Perdigão, Sadia, Batavo, Chester, and Perdix -- at home and abroad. Founded in 1934, BRF - Brazil Foods was transformed by a $3.8 billion-merger of its former company, Perdigão, with rival Sadia in 2009.

Tereos' roots reach back 200 years but it was twice reborn during the last few years; first, after being spun off from Eridania Béghin-Say in 2001 and second, when it partnered with French co-op group, Union SDA, in 2004. Tereos, now a co-op of other co-ops, is one of the world's top sugar companies. Its 12,000 sugar-beet growers produce some of Europe's leading consumer sugar brands (l'Antillaise, C'est la Vie, Les Pure Canne). Tereos also makes industrial sweeteners, as well as ethyl alcohol, ethanol for fuel, and alcohols for distillers. In 2010 Tereos spun off most of its non-sugar-beet business in a new company called Tereos Internacional and formed a stevia-production joint venture with PureCircle.
