Our corporate lawyers have advised PortionPack Europe Group, the European market leader in the field of portion packed products, on its recent acquisition.

Selecta, a leading European vending and coffee services provider, has sold Custompack Ltd formerly known as Chequer Foods Ltd, to PortionPack Europe Group, via its UK based company Single Source Ltd.

Custompack focuses on the provision of single portion items such as wet sauces, dry products and portion packing to its clients from its assembly facilities in Telford UK. The business generated net sales in excess of €20 million in the 12 month period to end-June 2018.

Passion for portions

David Flochel CEO of Selecta Group, said: “PortionPack operates in the same industry as Custompack, understands how the business works and can drive the business forward. Selecta will continue to source products from Custompack.”

PortionPack Europe CEO, Sidney Moll, said: “We are delighted to welcome Custompack Limited to the PortionPack Family. Custompack specialises in portion packing which is at the heart of our group and the company will sit alongside Single Source Limited, our existing UK portion pack business, also based in Telford Shropshire. The management team will now explore synergies and how the two businesses can operate in tandem to enhance our customers’ experiences and continue to serve the UK and Ireland Foodservice market with “Passion for Portions”.
