Originally founded as a small shop in Dukinfield, Manchester by John and Sarah Hill in 1855, Hill Biscuits' key products include digestives, ginger nuts, custard creams, bourbons, malted milks and gingerbread men.
Hill Biscuits is one of the UK’s leading biscuit manufacturers, producing over 30 million biscuits each week for the retail and foodservice markets.
In April 2017 LDC backed the management buyout of Hill Biscuits.
Following the transaction, the 150-year-old business plans to kick-start a multi-million-pound capital investment programme to expand its production capacity and develop new products in order to take advantage of rising demand from current and new customers.
Manchester-based Hill, which has annual sales of £20m, also said it would be seeking strategic acquisitions to build further scale and diversity, as well as implementing a new international sales strategy to accelerate growth in overseas markets.
