Belgian dairy cooperative Milcobel today announced the takeover of cheese shredding and packaging company Kaasbrik. This takeover is in line with the Milcobel strategy to increase customer-focus and create more added value to be able to achieve a better milk price for its member dairy farmers. With this takeover, Milcobel strengthens its position as one of the leading global companies with regard to producing, processing and marketing mozzarella.


Nils van Dam, CEO: “Our takeover of Kaasbrik will enable us to further strengthen our position as a significant player on the global mozzarella market. Milcobel and Kaasbrik complement one another extremely well. Mozzarella is a difficult high-quality product that requires the necessary expertise, for which we have found an ideal partner in Kaasbrik.”


Francis Relaes, Managing Director of the Milcobel Dairy Premium Ingredients business, is extremely pleased with this important development: “This acquisition links up perfectly with the strategic plans that we laid down in our business unit last year. Kaasbrik enables us to further optimise our degree of service and customer orientation. Interesting synergies are being created regarding export markets such as Asia, where mozzarella consumption is on the rise and where Milcobel has already built up a strong market position during the past years.”


Milcobel has been active for more than 20 years on the mozzarella market, and has grown into an international reference in terms of quality and customer service.
