Sale of Great British Chefs

In March 2020 ReSolve was appointed to sell Great British Chefs Limited, an established, authoratative and much loved brand in the British food industry, followed by over one million people on social media.

Its websites www.greatbritishchefs.com and www.greatitalianchefs.com attract over twenty million visitors per year and contain over 3000 recipes covering a variety of cuisines, techniques, dishes and courses.

Content is provided by some of the world’s finest chefs, including 2020 UK Michelin Star winners Laurie Gear, Lee Westcott and Michael Wignall.

The company also produces the popular ‘Great British Chefs Cookbook’ featuring 120 recipes from sixty of the best chefs cooking in Britain.

Following engagement ReSolve conducted an accelerated marketing campaign to find a purchaser, and in just over three weeks, successfully secured a sale to Food Publishing Limited, ensuring the brands survival.

As a result of this acquisition Food Publishing Limited plans to further develop Great British Chefs to deliver ever more attractive content for its followers.

Mark Bucknall, Chairman, Food Publishing Limited said:

Working with the exceptionally creative and talented Chief Brand Director, Mark Gandy, we hope to launch a new chapter for Great British Chefs building on its first class reputation, depth of content, and relationships with over 200 of the finest chefs.

'WE ARE VERY PLEASED TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SECURE A SALE OF THE ASSETS OF GREAT BRITISH CHEFS IN SUCH A SHORT TIMEFRAME. THE COMPANY WAS VERY WELL-RESPECTED AND IT IS ESPECIALLY PLEASING THAT ITS HERITAGE AND EXCELLENT REPUTATION WILL CONTINUE WITH ITS NEW OWNER.'

Simon Jagger, Director, ReSolve
