Croatian food company Atlantic Grupa has sold off its sports nutrition and functional food business arm.

The unit, which includes brands such as Multipower, Champ and Multaben, has been sold to Germany’s Genuport, a long-time partner of Atlantic Grupa’s in the sale and distribution of those products.

Atlantic Grupa said the deal fitted in with its strategy of selling off its non-core operations. The unit’s production plants had been previously sold to the Belgian company Aminolabs.

In 2018, the unit recorded sales of HRK133.7m (US$20.1m), 2.5% of the company’s total sales.

Neven Vrankovic, vice president for corporate activities at Atlantic Grupa, said Genuport was the “logical choice of partner in this process”.
