Adapted from a press release:

The transaction is expected to be completed in the coming months, subject to customary regulatory approvals and contractual closing conditions. The Mispol Group, established in 1997, in BiaĹ‚ystok, Poland, produces pet food for Polish and international customers, including supermarkets and specialty pet food retailers. Partner in Pet Food executives believe that Mispol’s geographic presence and growth prospects reflects Partners in Pet Food’s strategy to further expand its business and develop product offering in all categories. 

This transaction follows Partner in Pet Food’s recent acquisition of Doggy, a leading Swedish pet food manufacturer, in September 2020, and the acquisition of Landini Giuntini in Italy in January 2021. This is the second successful deal between NDX Group and Partner in Pet Food following the acquisition of Doggy.

“With its strong footprint in Poland and successful growth, Mispol represents a significant opportunity for us to further expand our local presence,” Gerald Kuehr, CEO of Partner in Pet Food, said in a press release.
