Kepak Group (Kepak) has announced today (5 December) that it is to acquire the Moy Park Poppintree facility in Ballymun, Dublin 11.
In a statement, the group outlined that the acquisition is expected to be completed by the end of December.
The investment reflects the 'continued growth of the Kepak Group' and is its fourth acquisition this year following the JV investment in Greene Farm Fine Foods in Westmeath, and the acquisitions of Country Park Foods (CPF), Huddersfield and Kepak Clare - a standalone abattoir.
“Meeting the challenge of changing consumer tastes, increasingly competitive markets and the potential disruption from Brexit, requires an approach that plays to our strengths and invests strategically in acquisitions which deepen our offering, especially in the new markets we are developing." John Horgan, Managing Director, Kepak Group said.
"As an Irish company and one of Europe’s leading food innovators, engaged in processing and marketing a full range of meat proteins in varied formats and presentations, the addition of Poppintree to the Kepak family of facilities further enhances our capability in added value cooked products”.
