Riedel’s consolidated net sales of fruit juices and fruit drinks for the year 2016 amounted to approximately €125 million. Riedel employs 200 people and the company is currently part of the business group FrieslandCampina Consumer Products Europe, Middle East & Africa.

Roelof Joosten, chief executive of Royal FrieslandCampina, comments: “Following the update of our company strategy ‘route2020, in which we increased the focus on the dairy portfolio, we are investigating the sale of our fruit juices and fruit drinks activities. Since the early nineteen seventies, our fruit juices and fruit drinks manufacturer Riedel has developed itself to become market leader in ambient and chilled fruit juices and fruit drinks in the Netherlands. Its professional and committed employees have been instrumental in achieving that success.
