Europe: Barry Callebaut acquires Mondelēz factory


Barry Callebaut has successfully closed the acquisition of the chocolate production facility from Mondelēz International in Halle, Belgium, as announced on September 15, 2016.

This follows the completion of works council consultations and closing conditions.

The factory in Halle, which will be integrated into Barry Callebaut’s global manufacturing network as of January 1, 2017, will expand the company’s production capacity for quality Belgian chocolate and fillings.

The transaction also includes a long-term agreement for the supply of an additional 30,000 tons of liquid chocolate per year to Mondelēz International, which will start in early 2017.
