Orkla Foods Danmark has entered into an agreement with Stryhns A/S on the sale of K-Salat. Stryhns A/S is part of the Norwegian Agra AS group. The purpose of the sale is to concentrate activities on fewer categories.
The agreement concerns the 100% divestment of K-Salat, which has a product portfolio of salad spreads, mayonnaise, remoulade, dressings and potato salads in Denmark. Under the agreement, Stryhns A/S will take over the factory with around 100 employees in Havnsø, Vestsjælland.
"We are glad to be able to sell K-Salat to Stryhns, which has the strong competence necessary to further develop the business. From now on, Orkla Foods Danmark will concentrate its core assortment on the well-known brands Beauvais, Den Gamle Fabrik, Glyngøre, Bähncke, FUN, Grønnegården and Risifrutti," says Tino Bendix, CEO of Orkla Foods Danmark A/S.
K-Salat was founded in 1937 under the name Københavns Salatfabrik. The business was later moved to Havnsø, and its name was changed to K-Salat.
The transaction is expected to be completed in early December 2017, and the entity will be consolidated into the buyer's financial statements as from 1 December 2017.
