Dunns Food and Drinks Ltd, the Lanarkshire wholesaler and soft drinks manufacturer, has acquired West Lothian-based Dameck Drinks Scotland Ltd for an undisclosed sum.

Jim Rowan, managing director Blantyre-based Dunns (pictured below), said: ‘Dameck sells over 1,200 craft and world beer products into the Scottish on-trade, and this acquisition will allow us access to a customer base and market sector in which we currently have little presence.’

Dunns, which took control of the Bathgate-based business last week, have transferred Dameck’s managing director Danny McGeough and his four-strong team to Blantyre from where Dameck will for the first few months operate as a standalone business.

‘Having expanded our spirits portfolio and joined the Country Range buying group, we have bolstered our range of food and non-food ranges,’ concluded Mr Rowan. ‘However, there is a growing consumer demand for niche products, hence our decision to acquire a business which has specialist knowledge of craft beers, a growing sector in Scotland.’
