Lamb Weston / Meijer has reached the completion phase of the acquisition of the potato division of Oerlemans Foods, including a take-over of the plant in Broekhuizenvorst. With the acquisition Lamb Weston / Meijer responds to both the increasing demand for frozen potato products as well as the growth ambitions of its customers. The sale allows Oerlemans Foods to further position itself as a specialist in frozen fresh fruits and vegetables. The transaction is expected to become effective later this year.
Bas Albas, CEO of Lamb Weston / Meijer: “The diverse customer base of Oerlemans Foods’ potato division and the location of its factory in Broekhuizenvorst, makes this a strategic asset to further shape our own growth ambitions and those of our customers.
