We are delighted to have advised Hamilton Grant on their sale to FoodChain ID.

Hamilton Grant is a family-owned, food risk and compliance software business based in Guildford that has created a market leading software serving the global food and beverage industry.  

Their software, which generates a high level of repeat SaaS revenues, enables food and beverage product developers to create better, more compliant food faster by streamlining the development process and ensuring products meet international standards and regulations. 

In addition, the cloud-based software dynamically updates nutrition and allergy information to enable the labelling information to be updated in real time.  

Hamilton Grant works with many of the world’s leading brands and boasts an exceptional client retention rate. 

Following the success of number of deals in the TIC (Testing, Inspection and Certification) and risk and compliance sector, our corporate finance team built a strong relationship with the shareholders of Hamilton Grant over a number of years.  

When FoodChain ID approached Hamilton Grant, the shareholders called upon our sector and transactional expertise to lead the deal through to a successful completion. 

The team led by Nigel Le Bas and Will Rose provided significant support throughout the process taking ownership of some complex financial issues and managing all parties to ensure the deal was completed in a tight time frame. 

We have worked with the Grant Thornton team over a number of years and there was no other adviser we would have wanted to work with on this important Transaction. Nigel and Will were superb in their management of the project, dealing with the key negotiations and were generally a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of going through such an important transaction.
