Pickled Walnut, the Birkenhead-based catering and events company, has secured new investment as it looks to acquire its own venues, according to the North West Caterer.

The publication quotes director Jamie Anderson saying the three existing Pickled Walnut companies were being brought under the control of one new holding company, J2M2S Ltd. Investors are understood to have bought a 50% stake in the firm for “a five-figure” sum.

Anderson will reportedly head the business alongside new managing director investor Jamie Lyne.

Anderson told the North West Caterer: “We have traded Pickled Walnut for seven years now and felt it was time to take on board investment and further expertise to take Pickled Walnut to its full potential.”
