Cargill has entered the Polish poultry market for the first time, as it has acquired Polish poultry producer Konspol for an undisclosed figure.
As part of the deal, Cargill will purchase the Polish assets of Konspol’s food and fresh chicken business and will acquire Konspol’s portfolio of branded and private label products, as well as its customer and supplier relationships.
Konspol operates a feed mill, five broiler farms and two processing sites in the country, employing approximately 1,700 people. According to Cargill, the acquisition will significantly increase Cargill’s production capacity of value-added and poultry products.
