Porky Whites, the family-owned brand, which has been serving its special-recipe bangers since 1935 has been given a new sizzle with £750,000 in funding from Independent Growth Finance (IGF).
The partners came together after a combination of external factors pushing up production prices and a pricing gap in one of its retail contracts left Porky Whites facing administration. The management team hurried to find a way to fund a buyout and keep the family’s legacy alive.
The company’s accountants, Menzies, introduced Porky Whites to IGF, a leading independent asset-based lender. Porky Whites turned to IGF when another funding provider reneged on its terms. IGF turned the deal around fast, delivering a fully credit-backed facility within a week.
