Gebr. Van Beek acquires Lodewijckx Group

The private shareholders of the Lodewijckx Group have sold a majority stake in the company to Van Beek Group B.V. Bert Lodewyckx, CEO of the Lodewijckx Group, remains active in the company as a minority shareholder.

The Lodewijckx Group is a leading European egg processor. Its activities span from grading fresh eggs for supermarkets to the production and distribution of liquid and dried egg products. From seven locations across Belgium, the company excels in delivering fresh and highly qualitative eggs and egg products to a diversified client base in over 50 countries. The Lodewijckx Group has become a preferred supplier for retailers, the food industry as well as food service companies.

The Van Beek Group is a Dutch family company that supplies fresh eggs and egg products in the Netherlands and Germany. The Group consists of six specialized companies which include a packing station, an egg boiling and painting factory, an egg product factory, trading and R&D.

Oaklins' team in Belgium served as the exclusive M&A advisor to Lodewijckx Group, the Benelux leader, in liquid and dried egg products as well as fresh eggs. The team was appointed by the Lodewijckx family to find a suitable partner for the company, allowing it to further professionalize and expand its leading position in the Benelux market. Oaklins' team in the Netherlands introduced the buyer.

M&A sell-side
“As family shareholders, with limited experience in M&A, we decided to appoint Oaklins' team in Belgium to help us in our search for a suitable, long-term partner. The team quickly proved to be a reliable advisor, that speaks the language of us as entrepreneurs, as well as that of financial and strategic investors. In the end they managed to secure a deal that benefits all parties around the table.”
