Written on 25/02/2021
GHENT, Belgium, 2021-02-25 - International pet food producer, United Petfood, announced the acquisition of the British manufacturer Cambrian Pet Foods. The acquisition strengthens the position of United Petfood as full-service private label pet food producer and gives customers access to a complete range of inhouse made products.


According to United Petfood's board of directors, "It is our goal to establish long-term relationships with our customers and be their preferred partner for the production of private label dry & wet pet food, biscuits and snacks. The acquisition of Cambrian Pet Foods allows us to extend our product range and be a one-stop solution for our customers. Rather than being merely a production partner, we want to guide our customers and work together to achieve success in their market by sharing our knowledge and creating high-quality products."

According to Cambrian Pet Foods Ltd.s ‘s Cambrian Pet Foods' Board of Directors: "It has been a genuine pleasure partnering with our colleagues, customers and suppliers to help the company grow and develop within our communities and the UK Pet Trade.
For four decades, Cambrian has demonstrated, time and again, its resilience and its ability to innovate and grow while delivering consistent quality and service to its customers, pets and pet parents alike. We are appreciative the support provided by all who have been with us during our journey. Cambrian Pet Foods Ltd. Is a one of a kind in its field, and represents the creative work of a lifetime - We cannot think of a better, more capable, safer and more potent home than within the United Petfood Family as the journey of growth, development and improvement are continued."

Cambrian Pet Foods was founded in 1982 and has a leading position within the UK pet food market. The family-owned business has three production plants in Llangadog, Pencader and Longridge and employs 130 people. The company is specialised in the private label production of dry pet food and wet pet food in both trays and cans.

This takeover strengthens United Petfood's position within the pet food manufacturing market. In 2019 United Petfood entered the wet pet food market segment with the opening of a single serve wet pet food plant for pouches in Radom, Poland. Thanks to the second wet pet food factory in Llangadog, United Petfood is broadening its product offering and will now also be able to produce wet pet food in trays and cans.

With three additional production plants, United Petfood Group operates now out of 17 pet food facilities situated in 8 different European countries. The takeover is in line with the strategy of United Petfood to reinforce and grow the business. The U.K. factories also bring additional experience, capacity and technological possibilities to the group.

Bynsa and United Petfood join their activities and experiences in the production of pet food

Written on 05/07/2018
  • The combined group will generate a turnover of 275 million euros with industrial activities in 5 European countries (Spain, Belgium, France, the Netherlands and Poland).
  • By sharing the extensive experience of both companies in the development and production of dry pet food and snacks, the two companies will strengthen each other, which guarantees the existing jobs and the activities of the different plants.
  • Following the joining of the two companies, Roger Mohr will remain CEO of Bynsa, while Mercadona will remain the main customer through its Compy brand.
El Burgo de Ebro (Zaragoza), 6 July 2018.- Bynsa Group, a benchmark company in Spain in the pet food sector, has signed with United Petfood a share purchase agreement by virtue of which United Petfood, a Belgian family-owned company specialized in the manufacturing of pet food for retail customers and brand owners, will acquire Bynsa Group thus formalizing a strategic partnership between the two groups.

The partnership has been reached after analysing the synergies that the joining of both companies generates. It will allow the resulting group, in which Roger Mohr will become a partner, to accelerate its growth and strengthen its industrial expertise in the development and production of dry pet food and snacks.

The joining of Bynsa and United Petfood means the creation of a combined group with 9 plants in Europe, located in Spain (1), Belgium (1), France (5), the Netherlands (1) and Poland (1); and an industrial capacity of more than 400.000 tons of food and snacks for dogs and cats manufactured exclusively for third companies. In fact, Mercadona will continue to be the main client of the new project, as the pet food under the Compy brand will continue to be produced at the Burgo de Ebro facilities.

The geographical complementarity of both companies guarantees the continuation of the activities of the different facilities, as well as the existing jobs. In addition, the exchange of know-how will enable the new group to consolidate and accelerate its growth with a common philosophy based on food safety, quality, flexibility and innovation.

According to Roger Mohr, CEO of Bynsa, "the partnership reached makes Bynsa, a company that I have been driving since 2007, a key part of a much more ambitious project that will enable all of us who are part of it not only to achieve the goals set before but also to take on new investment and business challenges. In fact, the sum of synergies and know-how makes us much better in Spain, where our aim is to continue growing with Mercadona, through Compy, through quality and specialisation. But we will also be contributing with our products and strategic location to strengthen United Petfood's export business, as well as continuing to invest in R&D&I."

From United Petfood's side, the partnership with Bynsa enables the group to further develop its dry petfood, biscuits and snacks offering to customers in more than 40 countries. "Bynsa's state-of-the-art production facility in dry petfood and snacks fit our ambition to be our customers best partner through ensuring high quality and food safety, production efficiency and innovation.
