Exponent follows acquisition of TRS with purchase of East End Foods

Private equity firm Exponent, which was recently reported as being engaged in the takeover of TRS Group (Cash & Carry Management: June) has now been linked with the purchase of Midlands company East End Foods.

Although both deals are understood to have been completed, neither Exponent nor the two C&C/wholesale concerns would confirm that the transactions have taken place.

TRS, based in Southall, Middlesex, has a cash & carry at that location plus another in Leyton, east London. It also has an ethnic foods wholesale business.

The Unitas Wholesale member has a turnover of around £110 million.

East End Foods, controlled by the Wouhra family, operates two cash & carries in Birmingham as well as a distribution warehouse in West Bromwich.

Annual sales are around £200 million.
