Cologne – LAWFUEL – DLA Piper advised Ebro Puleva SA, the leading Spanish food multinational, on the €30m acquisition of Germany’s prime pasta producer, Birkel Teigwaren GmbH (“Birkel”). The sale is subject to approval by German antitrust authorities.
Ebro Puleva SA owns strong rice, pasta, sugar and value-added dairy products brands. The group’s production facilities are mainly located in Spain, but it also has manufacturing and sales operations in over twenty countries.
