Cargill’s European poultry business is expanding into Poland with the acquisition of Konspol which has more than 1,700 employees in Poland and operates a feed mill and five broiler farms. The acquisition will increase Cargill’s production capacity and proximity to existing customers to offer expanded value-added and poultry products.
International food giant Cargill has reached an agreement to acquire Konspol, one of Poland’s leading value-added food companies, providing an array of products in the chilled convenience, frozen and cold cut categories. This acquisition marks the introduction of Cargill’s global protein business into the Polish market and strengthens the company’s global poultry footprint, expanding operations to 14 countries. Under the agreement, Cargill will purchase the Polish assets of Konspol’s food and fresh chicken business. Cargill will also acquire Konspol’s portfolio of products, including branded and private label offerings, as well as its customer and supplier relationships.
Konspol has more than 1,700 employees in Poland and operates a feed mill, five broiler farms and two processing complexes. ”Konspol’s commitment to high-quality food and passion for innovation is the perfect fit for Cargill’s Global Poultry business. This acquisition allows us to better serve our customers through a diversified portfolio of value-added products,” said Chris Langholz, President of Cargill Global Poultry. “Cargill is a company with huge accomplishments and a global reach. It is also family-owned company that shares our values,” said Konspol Founder Kazimierz Pazgan. “I am certain this is the best guarantee of a future for Konspol, a company I have expanded with my family for almost 40 years.”
