Orkla Foods Danmark has agreed to sell its K-Salat business to Stryhns, which is part of the Norwegian Agra group. The purpose of the sale is to concentrate Orkla’s activities on fewer categories.

K-Salat has a product portfolio of salad spreads, mayonnaise, remoulade, dressings and potato salads in Denmark. Under the agreement, Stryhns will take over the factory with around 100 employees in Havnsø, Vestsjælland.

“We are glad to be able to sell K-Salat to Stryhns, which has the strong competence necessary to further develop the business. From now on, Orkla Foods Danmark will concentrate its core assortment on the well-known brands Beauvais, Den Gamle Fabrik, Glyngøre, Bähncke, FUN, Grønnegården and Risifrutti,” says Tino Bendix, chief executive of Orkla Foods Danmark.

K-Salat was founded in 1937 under the name Københavns Salatfabrik. The business was later moved to Havnsø, and its name was changed to K-Salat.

The transaction is expected to be completed in early December 2017, and the entity will be consolidated into the buyer’s financial statements as from 1 December 2017.

Orkla is a leading supplier of branded consumer goods and concept solutions to the grocery, out-of-home and bakery markets in the Nordics, Baltics and selected markets in Central Europe and India.
