Upfield acquires AriviaFriday 01 November 2019 | News
We congratulate Arivia on the successful sale of Violife to Upfield.
Upfield, a KKR-owned portfolio company based in Amsterdam, manufactures plant-based spreads. They have acquired Greece-based Arivia, which produces vegan cheese and other alternative dairy products under the Violife brand.
The acquisition enables both product and regional diversification for both companies in a high-growth category.
OC&C was able to provide commercial insights leveraging significant global category expertise, as well as guidance and support to management and the vendor during the sales process, working closely with management. We are delighted to have supported Arivia on this transaction.
For more details on this transaction or OC&C's broader experience in this space, please contact Barney Wallace or Coye Nokes.
