Aramark (NYSE: ARML) a global provider of food and facilities management and uniforms, has acquired Wilson Vale, an independent foodservice company.

Wilson will join the Aramark UK business as a driver of growth and service delivery for small, business and industry clients and schools. Wilson Vale is an independent caterer providing products and services with seasonality, ingredient quality and local sourcing. The firm will operate as an autonomous brand in Aramark’s portfolio.

“Aramark is delighted to wholly acquire the Wilson Vale business in the UK,” said Helen Milligan-Smith, managing director of Aramark UK. “This authentic, well run, high-quality business fits perfectly with the culture, values, and growth ambition for Aramark here.”

“This is an extremely rare opportunity to become part of a larger family where the values and principles of our business can be fully retained,” said Andrew Wilson, co-founder and managing director of Wilson Vale. “Without doubt, one of the most pleasing things over the last two decades has been the way in which our people have developed, and in turn, how they have evolved the services we provide to our clients.”
