Kerry Group has announced that it has acquired Spain-based seasoning and coatings company Hasenosa for an undisclosed sum.

Hasenosa predominantly produces a range of value-added coatings for foods such as gluten-free breadcrumbs for the Spanish market and 20 other countries.

Hasenosa also manufactures glazes, marinades, sauces and fish mixes for clients in both the retail and foodservice sectors.

Kerry Group will acquire Hasenosas’s two manufacturing facilities in Galicia and Castilla y Leon, and the company claims that the acquisition enhances its ability to provide quality products for consumers in the European market.

Philip O’ Connor, business president for meat at Kerry, Taste & Nutrition Europe said: “Consumers of food across the world are constantly seeking new and exciting innovations and flavours and as Europe’s leading Taste and Nutrition company, we are always looking to help our customers meet this demand.

“The technologies and expertise developed by Hasenosa will complement our already strong offering to ensure that our customers have access to the most advanced and diverse offering available in the European market today”.

Juan Soto, Kerry Group’s general manager for Spain added: “Kerry already markets and distributes a comprehensive range of taste and nutrition solutions to the Food and Beverage markets across Spain.

“This acquisition, combined with our beverage manufacturing business, Vendin which is located in Pinto, increases our Spanish footprint while also supporting our customers across the whole of Europe and beyond.”
