Arla Foods Ingredients acquires Volac’s Whey Nutrition business

Published: 22-Apr-2024

The acquisition would allow Arla to utilise Volac's Felinfach site as a global production hub for its performance, health and food sectors

Arla Foods Ingredients has signed an agreement to acquire the Whey Nutrition division of Volac’s business through a purchase of the shares in Volac Whey Nutrition Holdings Limited and its subsidiaries, Volac Whey Nutrition Limited and Volac Renewable Energy Limited. 

Completion of the transaction is expected later this year subject to required regulatory approvals.

The acquisition would play a significant role in Arla Foods Ingredients’ future plans. It envisions the Felinfach site as a global production hub and a cornerstone of an enhanced product offering in the performance, health and food sectors.

For Volac, this represents a logical step in its evolution as a family business and provides the springboard for the optimal development of the Whey Nutrition Business, as well as Volac’s remaining Animal Nutrition Business.

Luis Cubel, Group Vice President and Managing Director of Arla Foods Ingredients, said: “This brings together two complementary offerings in a growing and increasingly international space for whey products. Volac is a pioneer in the use of whey protein for performance nutrition and has a wealth of expertise. It shares our commitment to helping companies worldwide harness the full potential of whey, and we’re hugely excited about the opportunities that lie ahead.”
