Associated British Foods plc Company Profile
Think you're the best thing since sliced bread? Associated British Foods (ABF) "is" sliced bread. ABF, which introduced sliced bread in the UK during the 1930s, makes and markets baked goods under the Allinson and Tip Top brands. Its grocery products, which account for some one-third of sales, include household staples Karo syrup, Argo corn starch, Kingsmill bread, Silver Spoon sugar, and Twinings tea. In the US, it owns Fleischmanns Yeast and ingredient and spice maker ACH. Other divisions churn out sugar, pharmaceutical ingredients, specialty oils, and animal feed. Beyond food, ABF owns Primark, a retail clothing chain in the UK, and parts of Europe. ABF's activities span nearly 45 countries worldwide.
