Refresco Gerber, the leading European bottler of soft drinks and fruit juices for retailers and A-brand owners, has agreed to acquire the PepsiCo bottling facility in Hamburg, Germany, for an undisclosed sum.

The acquisition fits Refresco Gerber’s buy & build strategy and further strengthens its footprint in the German soft drinks and fruit juices market. Included in the terms of agreement is a 10-year co-packing agreement with PepsiCo.

Hans Roelofs, chief executive of Refresco Gerber, says: “This transaction lies at the heart of our buy & build strategy and confirms our focus on expanding our co-packing business. It further strengthens our relationship with one of our key customers PepsiCo, for whom we already provide co-packing activities in France, Spain, Benelux and the UK.”

He adds: “Germany is an important region for Refresco Gerber and with this acquisition, we take an important leap forward in our German co-packing activities and further improve our market presence.”

It is anticipated that the acquisition, which is subject to approval by the German competition authority, will be completed during the second quarter of 2016.
