OC&C provides sell-side support to Orkla on partnership with Rhône Group

piątek, 27 października 2023 | News

After providing strategic advice and vendor due diligence to Orkla ASA and their subsidiary, Orkla Food Ingredients AS (OFI), we’re delighted to congratulate them on the announcement of their partnership with Rhône.

The deal will see funds affiliated with Rhône, the transatlantic private equity firm, acquire a 40% stake in OFI. The transaction implies an enterprise value of NOK 15.5 billion.

Established in 1999, OFI is a leading provider of food ingredients solutions. OFI manufactures and distributes ingredients across a range of category and customer segments, including bakery and ice cream ingredients for small and large businesses as well as plant-based dairy alternatives for consumers. With heritage in the Nordics, they now play across much of Europe, with recent expansion into the United States.

As Orkla and Rhône join forces, we wish them both every success with their future growth plans.
