The Tönnies Group has taken over the British sausage producer Riverway Foods. The company is specialized in sausage production for the British market. Quality products such as "Cumberland Sausages" are sold nationwide.

"Together with the Crosby family, we want to expand our market share in the UK," says Carsten Jacobsen, Managing Director responsible for the Tönnies UK market. "Riverway Foods quality products fit together with our other Becketts and Direct Table products."

Riverway Foods was founded in 1971 in Harlow, Essex. In the following decades, the company grew successively and opened in 1982, the first own shop with a fresh counter in London.
