Virto Group, a producer and supplier of frozen vegetables based in Spain, has acquired Oerlemans Foods Group of the Netherlands for an undisclosed sum.

With a product range encompassing deep-frozen vegetables, as well as pulses, mixes, rice, pasta, cereals and vegetable-based dishes, Virto has an annual turnover of around EUR300m (US$343.4m) and supplies retailers and foodservice outlets.

Its deal for privately-owned Oerlemans Foods, which supplies frozen vegetables and fruit, will create an entity with more than EUR400m in sales, with operations in Spain, France, Benelux, Germany and Poland, according to a statement from Virto.

Under the transaction, Virto said it will incorporate new products such as fruits and strengthen its organic range, while Oerlemans will take a range of Mediterranean products into its portfolio.

Javier Virto, the chief executive of Virto, said: “This acquisition of Oerlemans allows us to further improve and reinforce our product range and service offerings to current and potential customers.”
