Iqbal Hamzah, CEO, Agthia Group, commented: “We had a very successful 2014, and I am excited to begin 2015 with this announcement. Our partnership with Monty’s Bakehouse will not only add a popular name to our portfolio, but will leverage its relationships with airlines to facilitate the introduction of our brands to the airline industry. Our strategy for 2015 focuses on diversifying our product portfolio and widening our distribution reach, and this agreement satisfies both objectives.”
Matt Crane, CEO, Monty’s Bakehouse, added: “We have worked closely with Agthia for the past two years and we have aligned the strategic objectives of both our businesses. Our partnership with Agthia Group will allow us at Monty’s Bakehouse to broaden both our product range and our geographical reach east towards Asia whilst providing additional support to our core clients within the GCC region.
