Sandwiches, wraps, salads and cold pressed juices are among the products produced by this company under its Scribbles brand. The business was established in 1989 at home around the kitchen table by husband and wife Francis and Sheila Chambers, 58 and 57. The Co Down-based firm is now run by their son, Gareth, 32, chief executive, and chairman Howard Farquhar, 59, after the pair led a management buyout in 2016, when sales hit £14.4m. Since then it has acquired Sweet Things bakery and Slough-based Chef in a Box, both for undisclosed sums.
