Oliver Kay is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of high quality fresh produce to the catering and leisure sectors, and has an extensive client base. Based in Bolton, but with a delivery network covering much of the UK, the company has successfully built a reputation for the quality and range of its products as well as for the high level of service it provides.

The team at Maven invested in Oliver Kay to support its expansion and maintain the focus on service levels and customer retention. During Maven’s involvement the business delivered year on year growth and was sold in 2012 to Bidfresh Limited, part of the Bidvest Group, realising a return of 2.4x the original investment for Maven clients.

I am very proud of the success of the business and the journey we have taken in expanding the customer base and product offering and I thank the staff for their passion and contribution in achieving this success. Maven has been an excellent partner for the business, providing valuable support during this growth phase.
