Fuller’s shopping for more pubs

UK brewer Fuller, Smith & Turner (Fuller’s ales) may be hunting for more acquisitions given its initial success since buying George Gales & Co. and its pub properties.

“There’s a great pressure on companies to consolidate at the moment and I suspect it will continue,” Michael Turner said. “We would be happy to expand if the right opportunities arose. For example, if a family business was finding it hard to compete we could offer a similar culture.”
