Associated British Foods plc
"From its inception in November 1935 as Food Investments Limited and its rapid change to Allied Bakeries Limited five weeks later, the business grew dramatically as a broad-based food manufacturing organisation, becoming Associated British Foods Limited in February 1960. It finally changed to Associated British Foods plc in May 1982 to comply with legal requirements. Growth has been predominantly through acquisition and has resulted in a global group operating in 46 countries, employing 102,000 employees."  They are owned by Wittington Investments.
