UK-based egg packer Stonegate Ltd. has bought out Farmhouse Freedom Eggs Ltd., a company specializing in free-range and organic eggs.

According to both companies, the acquisition of Farmhouse, which will continue to operate as a stand-alone company, will expand their business dealings in Wales. “Our Welsh customer base is extremely important to us and this merger will enable us to strengthen our Welsh producer base and offer additional support to our farmers,” said Gerry Tuffs, co-founder and managing director of Farmhouse.


Stonegate had previously invested £5 million (US$8.3 million) into its Swansea, Wales facility.
