Thomson Snell & Passmore LLP advised long-standing client Watts Farms Fresh Produce Limited in relation to their joint venture with The Wonky Food Company.
The Wonky Food Company was started in 2017 with a commitment to tackling food waste by creating great-tasting products that make use of imperfect and surplus fruit and vegetables. This joint venture transaction has paved the way for the launch of The Wonky Food Company’s first range of products, which they are looking to sell in supermarkets and cafes throughout the UK.
The new products consist of ‘Chilli Tomato’, ‘Hot Pepper & Lime’, and ‘Tangy Onion’ relishes, all ‘packed with tasty imperfection’. They can already be found on sale in two flagship stores of Midcounties Co-op in Bourton-on-the-Water and Chipping Norton, and also in Blenheim Palace East Courtyard Shop. The Wonky Food Company is continuing to work with farmers, suppliers and retailers to collect their imperfect and surplus fruit and vegetables and turn them into new flavours.
Nick Gabay led the team of lawyers at Thomson Snell & Passmore and commented on the transaction: “We are delighted to have brought these two innovative companies together and wish them well in developing the brand promoting the greatness of all things wonky!”.
