Aprirose's CEO Manish Gudka said: "In recent years, our enagagement with the pub industry has increased considerably. The acquisition of the 45 British Land pub portfolio is a sign of our growing commitment to this exciting sector. Against the backdrop of Brexit uncertainty, we are finding unique opportunities to acquire interesting assets. The F&B sector is particularly appealing as we seek to build our own bespoke offering."
