ABOUT US

Saville House Holdings Ltd. is the family company of Richard and Ailsa Harris, through which Richard Harris partnered with the Senft family and Tricor Pacific Capital Inc. in 2014 to create Founders Group of Food Companies Inc.

 

Starting in 2020, Saville has formed new partnerships to broaden the scope of its activities, as well as started making passive investments beyond its core focus on mature food and beverage companies. These new partnerships and passive investments sit alongside Saville's significant partnership with Tricor in Founders Group of Food Companies, which remains an important opportunity for value creation.

PARTNERSHIPS

Saville and Founders_edited.png

In 2014, Founders Group of Food Companies was created to invest the capital of Saville House Holdings (Harris family) and Tricor Pacific Capital (Senft family). The origin of the Harris / Senft partnership came from an investment in Golden Boy Foods where Richard Harris served as President & CEO and Rod Senft served as Chairman. After five years, Founders is primarily focused on its existing portfolio, including acquisition of closely-related protein platforms and add-on M&A. Founders' most recent acquisitions were Lombardi Bros Meats (2022), Walt's Meats (2021) and Seattle Fish Company of Denver (2021).

 

Starting in 2020, Saville has added new capital and strategies to broaden the scope of its activities. These new strategies sit alongside Saville’s strategy for investing further in Founders Group of Food Companies with Tricor Pacific Capital to at least double Founders' size, scope and impact by 2030.
