Company Overview

Distribution and outsourcing group Bunzl was formed in the 1940s though its origins date back another 100 years. The group expanded rapidly through its cigarette filter business Filtrona, though this was demerged in June 2005 and the group now focuses on its food packaging and cleaning products operations.
