This Glasgow company supplies sugar, sweeteners, oil, fats and dairy products to British manufacturers. Under founder Iain Dalglish, 68, it has increased exports to mainland Europe, where its big markets are the Netherlands and Belgium. A drop in commodity prices helped Kent Foods to boost its profits 73% last year, though revenues dropped for the same reason.
