    Law firm Eversheds LLP has advised Go2 Foods Limited, the latest venture from Glisten Plc founder and former CEO, Paul Simmonds, on the acquisition of The Real Yorkshire Pudding Co Limited.

    Formed in 1991, The Real Yorkshire Pudding Company is a leading manufacturer of chilled Yorkshire puddings and supplies many of the major food retailers and national wholesalers. Recent developments include introducing a popular gluten free range, which includes both Yorkshire puddings and toad in the hole.

    The deal saw two majority shareholders exit and the remaining shareholder, Charles Payne, invest in Go2 Foods alongside a number of other investors. Charles will also be continuing his role as Managing Director.

    The Eversheds team was led by Corporate Partner, Robin Skelton who was assisted by Senior Associate, Jonathan Pollard, and Associate, Becky Ashurst.

    Eversheds has acted for Paul Simmonds on a number of previous transactions and are pleased to continue this relationship in his new business ventures.

    Robin Skelton said:

    “We are proud to have supported such a local business with their growth plans. We have worked with Paul for many years and look forward to advising him on future investments.”

    Paul Simmonds commented:

    “As always, we are thankful to the Eversheds team for their continued dedication and expert guidance throughout this transaction.”
