NEWS: Abbot Kinney’s is part of the Wessanen Group
Good news travels fast! We are really pleased to announce that we are part of the Wessanen Group. Plant-based food is at the heart of Wessanen and together we want to make our mission work: make plant-based dairy mainstream.
Plant-based food belongs to the Wessanen strategy and Dairy Alternatives is one of their core categories, present across all key countries in Europe and beyond. That’s why Abbot Kinney’s and Wessanen are a perfect fit. Together we want to make plant-based dairy mainstream.
Christophe Barnouin, CEO of Wessanen, said: ‘Driving the change to plant based food is the essence of our strategy. The acquisition of Abbot Kinney’s is a further step in accelerating growth and innovation in our core categories. Beyond drinks, the segment of plant based yoghurt alternatives and ice-cream is an excellent and so far mostly untapped growth opportunity for us. Abbot Kinney’s is a fast growing and innovative brand that has developed a range of strong products which we believe will thrive within the Wessanen family.”
Jimme Slippens and Gijs van Maasakkers, founders of Abbot Kinney’s commented: ‘We are very enthusiastic joining forces with Wessanen. The past years we have worked hard to establish a brand that believes in an organic and plant based future of food; important beliefs that we also found at Wessanen. With a mission to make plant based dairy mainstream, we are certain that joining the Wessanen family will make Abbot Kinney’s the leading brand on plant based dairy innovation in Europe.’
