Exponent Private Equity and Intermediate Capital Group have agreed the sale of Quorn Foods to Monde Nissin for an enterprise value of £550m. The sale is expected to complete by October 30th.

Quorn is an international meat alternatives business with a market leading position in 15 countries.

Monde Nissin is a leading branded consumer goods company in the Philippines. They are building a global branded food business focussed on health and sustainability: Quorn is a great fit for this strategy and complements its recent Australian acquisitions in healthy drinks and dips.

Simon Davidson, partner at Exponent said: “Under Exponent’s ownership Quorn has been transformed into a fast-growing global health brand. Our partnership with the superb management team, led by Kevin Brennan, has created one of the UK’s fastest growing food brands as well as a rapidly growing international business.”

Quorn’s Chief Executive, Kevin Brennan, said: “We have an ambition to be the world leader in meat alternatives, ultimately creating a $1bn business. Monde Nissin Corporation’s purchase represents a great step forwards in this ambition; they share our belief in the potential of Quorn, and provide capability to expand the brand into Asia.”

The company will continue to operate from Stokesley, North Yorkshire. Quorn Foods recently invested £30m in capacity in Teesside to enable increased international expansion. This is expected to create more jobs in the area.

Monde Nissin’s CEO Henry Soesanto said “Monde Nissin have been investing in “on-trend, better for you” products internationally in line with our strategy to become a global diversified food company. Quorn represents an important new leg in our offering. We are excited by the growth potential of the global meat alternatives market, which complements our strategy perfectly.”

Chris Graham, partner at Exponent, said “The last five years have seen Quorn help take a staggering 60bn calories out of diets and had a Greenhouse Gas benefit equal to 65,000 cars not being on the road. Under Monde Nissin’s ownership I am confident it will go on to have a profound impact on both health and sustainability.”

Today Quorn Foods has around 620 employees on three UK sites and internationally: Stokesley in North Yorkshire, Billingham on Teesside and Methwold in Norfolk, Frankfurt in Germany, and Chicago, USA. 

You may have noticed a few US newspaper reports related to a recent Clear Food consumer guide “The Hotdog report”. The report used a DNA sequencing workflow to identify that “4 of the 21 vegetarian samples we tested had hygienic issues” and that “10% of vegetarian products contained meat”. At no point was Quorn mentioned in this report, and as we have not been contacted by Clear Food, we have no reason to believe that Quorn was implicated in the report findings. Quorn is a Meat Free and Soy Free brand. The main ingredient in all Quorn products is Mycoprotein which is a healthy source of protein derived from fungi through a fermentation process.

We're proud to say that our product range in the UK uses free range eggs.

Mycoprotein was first discovered by Rank Hovis McDougall (RHM) in 1968. In order to satisfy the requirements of the Governments Ministry of Agriculture Fishery and Foods that  Mycoprotein was safe for human consumption, a series of animal feeding trials were requested to be carried out.

Since 1995 there have been no further requirements for feeding trials and there are categorically no plans or requirements to carry out any additional work.

In a September 2015 statement, The Vegan Society said “It is good news that a major food manufacturer such as Quorn is seeking to meet consumer demand by producing an animal-free version of their products.”

No he is not a vegetarian, he also eats meat.

A selection of Quorn products are now certified as gluten-free. These products can be identified in stores with the crossed grain symbol on the packaging.

At Quorn Foods, we are committed and dedicated to providing customers with safe and delicious products. Over the last 30 years, we have served more than 3 billion Quorn meals to families like yours around the globe. We are proud of what we do. We deliver great-tasting, nutritious, safe food. Our strong and loyal customer base around the world is evidence of that.

Quorn Foods has always been made from a protein ingredient called mycoprotein. Mycoprotein is NOT an additive, it is a food that is harvested and fermented in a similar way to beer or yogurt. Quorn products are GMO free, and meet all international regulatory standards. Contrary to some recent reports, Quorn products meet and exceed the standards set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as well as many other international food safety regulatory bodies around the world. We voluntarily and extensively test our products, and have for decades, to ensure the safety of our customers. 

Quorn products offer a nutritious, meat free source of fiber and protein. As with all protein and fiber rich foods, Quorn products may have the potential to cause an adverse reaction in a small number of consumers. As with all food, consumers should be mindful of their personal sensitivities when introducing Quorn into their diet. We recognize that some organizations have challenged the safety and labelling of Quorn products. All allegations that we have received regarding Quorn products have been factually inaccurate and lacking scientific credibility.  Quorn’s main ingredient -- mycoprotein - is not classified as an allergen in the U.K or the fifteen other countries where it is currently sold. While reactions to Quorn products are significantly less than foods such as soy, nuts and shellfish, last year we voluntarily updated our packaging to explain possible sensitivities customers may have when eating Quorn.

Quorn is committed to providing its customers with delicious and nutritious meals. We understand that you may have additional concerns about Quorn products and we are happy to answer any questions you have. Please give us a call on the customer service team and we’d be happy to speak with you about our food.  We hope that you continue to enjoy Quorn meals.

If you have any further questions about Quorn Products, please call our Customer Service team.

Many Quorn products are a source of protein, which contributes to the maintenance of normal bones. Many Quorn products are also low in saturated fat.

Marlow Foods are aware that there are a number of important environmental and social concerns regarding the production of palm oil, a natural vegetable oil widely used in the food industry.

As part of our ongoing drive to improve all aspects of sustainability in our business, we are members and active supporters of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, RSPO, which has developed a globally recognised standard and certification scheme for sustainably produced palm oil.

In order to achieve progress at scale and make a positive impact, we believe it is necessary to use one well-established and recognised system. That is why Marlow Foods are requesting that all of our suppliers and industry partners adopt the RSPO standard.

Marlow Foods use a small amount of palm oil, all of which is sustainable, indeed our usage of palm oil represents just 0.0005% of the 63 million tonnes of palm oil produced globally on an annual basis (according to figures for 2014).

We apply the following policy for palm oil usage in our QuornTM branded products:

1.    We will minimise our use of palm oil


In accordance with our health credentials, we aim to use the healthiest possible oils in our products, therefore where possible oils such as sunflower and rapeseed oil are used.


2.    We only use sustainable palm oil


In products where palm oil is necessary for its unique properties, we use only certified sustainable palm oil from either the mass balance or segregated schemes. As availability of certified segregated increases, we aim to convert all usage to the segregated scheme by 2017. As part of this commitment, only segregated palm oil will be used in our new product development from 2016 onwards.


For more information on RSPO and their certification schemes, please visit the RSPO website at www.rspo.org.

Quorn products are so easy to cook. Quorn foods can be cooked using an oven, grill, stove or microwave.

Unfortunately, we can not influence any individual stores to stock our products. Instead, we can only make recommendations to each Head Office that they do so. If you continue having difficulty in obtaining Quorn products we suggest that you contact the manager at your local store and make your request to them directly.

Quorn products are currently available in the UK, USA, Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, The Netherlands, Spain, France, Italy, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, Denmark, Finland and Germany.

We have recently gained Kosher approval with the Manchester Beth Din for mycoprotein and our frozen mince packs. Please visit the Manchester Beth Din website and search for Quorn for details of our approved products http://www.mbd.org.uk/site/kosher-products. We will be working to expand this approval to other Quorn products in the near future.

The majority of Quorn products contain a small amount of egg white, and most also contain milk ingredients, they are not suitable for vegans. In October we will be launching a Quorn Vegan range which vegans can enjoy.

We have been made aware of a lawsuit filed against the USA Food & Drug Administration (FDA). We are not able to comment on the details of the lawsuit itself, but can confirm that the comments made in regards to mycoprotein, which is an ingredient in Quorn products, are misleading and unsubstantiated.  Quorn is a safe, well tolerated food, and has been classified as such by the world’s most stringent food safety regulators, including the FDA, the Food Standards Agency, and Food Standards Australia and New Zealand.

There are over 100 different Quorn products to choose from.

A Quorn product suitable for a Vegan diet is currently available in selected countries. Here in the UK, we're delighted to announce we will be launching a Quorn vegan range in October, following a growing demand.

Quorn is classified as a safe, well-tolerated food by regulatory bodies across the world, including the USA's Food & Drug Administration (FDA), and the UK's Food Standards Agency (FSA), among the world's most stringent food safety regulators. The CSPI's past accusations about Quorn were proven to be false, with both the FSA and FDA looking into their claims and finding them to be inaccurate.
