Royal Wessanen is a multinational food corporation based in the Netherlands. The company specializes in producing, marketing and distributing high-quality, natural and specialty food products in North America and Europe. Royal Wessanen’s activities on the frozen food market included the German company Karl Kemper. Royal Wessanen decided to divest Karl Kemper due to a lack of synergies with the frozen snack activities of Royal Wessanen in the Benelux. Going forward, Wessanen’s frozen food activities will focus on improving its position in the Benelux market.
Oaklins' teams in Germany and the Netherlands advised the seller in this transaction.
