United Petfood strengthens European presence with acquisition of two facilities from Cargill

Keen on tapping this growing market, United petfood has continued to expand its label as a full-service pet food producer through the acquisition of established manufacturers.

This year, the Ghent-based pet food producer has increased its manufacturing space by taking over pet food manufacturers from France and UK.

Recently in October, the company announced the takeover of Gold line Feeds, an independent feed manufacturer with 80 years of experience and a supply of 20000 tons of dry pet food annually.

United Petfood took over the brands and customer base of the Gold Lines factory in Northamptonshire in the English Midlands.

In April, United Petfood acquired a factory in southwest France from French food company Neodis Group, a company that was producing dry pet food at the La Braconne site since 1976.

Last year, United Petfood bought Cambrian Pet Foods and Teeling Petfood expanding its market shares in the UK, the Netherlands, and Poland.  

The acquisition by United Petfood widens its network in pet food manufacturing footprint as the group now operates 21 pet food facilities situated in 9 different European countries.
