Cargill acquires Dutch alcohol business

Posted by Rita Mu

Food producer Cargill has acquired Dutch-based Royal Nedalco’s alcohol business from its parent company Royal Cosun.

The acquisition, which was completed on Friday, includes Nedalco’s production sites in Sas van Gent, the Netherlands and in Manchester, the United Kingdom.

The two plants produce around one million hectolitres of potable and industrial alcohol per annum and employ approximately 100 people.

According to Cargill, Nedalco’s alcohol business will become an “integral part” of the company’s starches and sweeteners business in Europe.

"We are looking forward to building on Nedalco’s market-leading position at the high end of the potable and industrial alcohol market in Europe, by tapping into its excellent reputation and the expertise of its employees," said Peter van Deursen, Head of Cargill’s starches and sweeteners European division.

"In addition, Nedalco’s customers will receive access to Cargill’s product offering and international services."

Nedalco’s alcohol is used in multiple industrial applications in the spirit, food, pharmaceutical, chemical and cosmetics industries.
