Nomad Foods has confirmed it is eyeing the US for more acquisitions in frozen food.

A spokesperson for Nomad confirmed comments made by Nomad CEO Stefan Descheemaeker to Reuters that the UK-listed company is considering the acquisition of neglected frozen food brands in the US.One of the qualities the firm looks at in an acquisition is a strong management team, Descheemaeker added.

Nomad refused to comment on speculation it might explore the option of buying US firm Bellisio Foods or General Mills ' Green Giant.

The company was formed last year to make acquisitions of consumer-facing businesses. Both its moves have so far come in frozen food.

Last week, Nomad confirmed it had struck a deal for Findus Group assets in Europe in a cash-and-shares deal worth GBP500m. The operations include the brands Findus , Lutosa, and La Cocinera in those countries. Findus' remaining assets, including UK unit Young's Seafood, will stay with owner Lion Capital .

In June, Nomad closed a US$2.88bn deal for Iglo Group – owner of Birds Eye frozen vegetables in Europe and Findus branded frozen fish in Italy.

Announcing the Findus Europe deal, Nomad's co-chairmen and founders, Noam Gottesman and Martin Franklin, said: "Curating a portfolio of market-leading consumer foods companies remains our core objective and this acquisition furthers our long-term commitment to growing the frozen food sector in Europe through ongoing investments in brands, innovation, and product development."
