Foodpartners International closes the acquisitions of Weidelco Foodpartners and continues its international growth with the acquisition of the French sector player Dumortier.

Foodpartners International BV is pleased to announce that it has closed the
acquisitions of Weidelco Foodpartners and Group Claes, with the support of Sofindev as majority shareholder and the Rolf and Claes families as significant minority shareholders. At the same time, Foodpartners International announces the next step in the international development of the group, with the acquisition of the French company Dumortier.

Dumortier is a regional supplier of butchery supplies, such as packaging, spices, cleaning products, nets and artificial casings, and equipment for the food sector, with two branches in the northern French region of Nord-Pas-de Calais, in Roncq and Arras.

The activities and the offering of Dumortier are very similar to those of Group Claes and Weidelco and also its history and family background. The partnership of Thierry Dansette with Foodpartners International and the Belgian and Dutch families Claes and Rolf stem from the shared desire to ensure the continuity of their business, due to the lack of family succession and the attractive proposition to become part of a strong group with a family background and values. This will allow Group Claes, Weidelco and Dumortier to continue their growth and further strengthen their position in their respective geographical markets.
