Vinamilk, Vietnam’s largest dairy group, is to acquire a 47% stake in local peer GTNFoods.

The deal, confirmed in an announcement on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange (HOSE), will see Vinamilk gain an interest in Moc Chau Milk – in which GTNFoods has a 51% stake – as well as two other state-run agricultural companies.

The HOSE announcement said Vinamilk plans to acquire 116.7m shares in GTNFoods, an investment of around VND1.5trn (US$64.8m). 

GTNFoods was established in 2011 and has grown through acquisition, including those of Ladofoods and Vietnam Livestock Corporation (Vilico). It is its holding of 75% of Vilico’s shares, that sees it owning, indirectly, 51% of Moc Chau Milk.

Vinamilk had a 55% market share of Vietnam’s liquid milk market in 2018.
