Cargill Secures The European Commission Clearance for Acquisition of Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's Chocolate Business
Jul 25 15
The European Commission has granted conditional clearance for Cargill to acquire Archer Daniels Midland's chocolate business in Europe. Together with the approvals granted earlier by the US Department of Justice, this completes the regulatory approval process for the global deal. After closing of the transaction, three chocolate, compound and liquor production sites in North America - Milwaukee (Wis.), Hazleton (Penn.) and Georgetown (Ontario) and three chocolate and compound production sites in Europe - Liverpool (U.K.), Manage (Belgium) and Mannheim (Germany) and more than 650 employees will transfer to Cargill. And the Ambrosia, Merckens and Schokinag brands will join Cargill's existing portfolio of high quality chocolate brands. Addressing the European Commission's competition concerns, Cargill has agreed to divest ADM's industrial chocolate production facility in Mannheim, Germany. The facility will be kept as a separate entity with its own interim management until an agreement with a prospective buyer has been made. Cargill provides food, agriculture, financial and industrial products and services worldwide.
