Booker leap into foodservice

Booker Group announced this week that they have made an agreed bid for rival Metro UK business.

The deal to take over the 30 Makro sites will cost Booker £15.8 million plus 9.9% of Booker’s shares. With a typical depot around 100,000 square feet and with a much higher number of SKUs,  this will dramatically change what Booker do.

For a company close to bankruptcy not so many years ago their fortunes have improved dramatically. Definitely a company that is looking to the future!
