CSF partners with Together for funding for food group

Specialist distributor Crystal Specialist Finance (CSF) has partnered with Together to secure £1m of funding for growing food business The Food Group.

This is through second charge loans secured against their homes. The entire process was completed in under six weeks.

Jo Breeden (pictured) managing director of CSF, said: “This was a very complex case that was made possible by the experience and inspired thinking of the team, and our great relationship with the lender who understood the ins-and-outs of the case immediately.”

Marc Goldberg, commercial chief executive at Together, added: “This is a great example of how loans secured against residential homes can help applicants give their businesses a boost.

“When our valued partners at CSF brought this case to us, we knew we could help and our team worked closely with them to release the funding needed in under six weeks, allowing them to get the best outcome possible for their clients.”

The bosses at The Food Group needed £750,000 to clear an existing bridging loan and another £250,000 to invest back into their business, a supplier to the catering industry based in the West Midlands.

They brought the complex deal to CSF which approached Together.

The lender recommended its homeowner business loan product for the directors, allowing them to borrow against residential property for commercial purposes. 

Their application was split into two linked cases to make sure all the company directors received the lowest possible rates.
