The European Commission has given the green light to Austrian companies Agrana Group and RWA Raiffeisen Ware Austria (RWA) for the merger of their fruit juice concentrates subsidiaries Agrana Juice Holding and Ybbstaler Fruit Austria.

Besides fruit juice concentrates, the joint venture will also produce fruit purees and natural flavourings as well as direct juices for use by the beverages industry.
