Royal A-ware to acquire The Dairy Food Group

9 July 2024

Royal A-ware Food Group is planning to acquire Belgian family concern The Dairy Food Group. This includes the BMC (Belgian Milk Company) daily milk collection round as well as the companies Eurodesserts, Limelco, Incopack and Incorock. The proposed acquisition will be reported to the European Commission as soon as possible.

The proposed acquisition is in line with the Dutch family business’ strategy of continuing to expand its dairy operations in Belgium while further strengthening its position in what is now a second domestic market. ‘Once the acquisition process is complete, we can optimise our milk processing operation in Belgium even further and so work on making supply chains even more efficient. We will also be able to offer our customer base an even wider product portfolio,’ said Jan Anker, CEO of Royal A-ware Food Group.

The Dairy Food Group sees the proposed acquisition as providing opportunities to achieve its growth ambitions sooner and create new jobs. ‘We are delighted to be joining the Royal A-ware Food Group. This step means, for instance, that we can accelerate the sustainability credentials of our operations. As a family business, Royal A-ware strives for the same values as we do and is therefore a perfect match,’ explains Nathalie Nijs, CEO of The Dairy Food Group.

The proposed acquisition is subject to the usual conditions. The aim is to complete the transaction before the end of 2024.
