Exotic Snacks has a leading position in the nature snacks and sweets category in Sweden, offering a wide assortment of snacks and candy.

Rootfruit Scandinavia produces and markets a growing range of snacks such as potato-, lentil- and quinoa-based chips, distinguishing itself by offering healthier alternatives and mostly using local ingredients.

Credelity Capital provides experience and capital to fast-growing companies and to buy-outs. The firm´s business plan is to create value through investments in unlisted growth companies. Industrial knowledge and active and long-term ownership are cornerstones in Credelity Capital´s strategy.

“Oaklins' Swedish team has, through a combination of great dedication and outstanding industrial expertise, been pivotal in securing this merger, which is an excellent outcome for the shareholders of Exotic Snacks. This synergistic combination will be better equipped to compete on the growing and competitive Nordic snacks market than the two companies were individually, that is why we are convinced that this will prove to be a strategically and industrially excellent transaction.”
