No matter what part of the food and beverage industry you’re in, there are likely potential merger and acquisition opportunities. There are many ways to generate additional revenues, expand into new markets and kickstart or continue post-pandemic growth.
Potential issues could arise that companies must consider before engaging in any growth strategy. This includes regulatory requirements, employee pension obligations, complex supply agreements, tax issues, competition and antitrust challenges and more.
Osler’s M&A team has a deep understanding of this sector and has worked with some of the largest Canadian companies on deals of all sizes. We’ve helped major food producers buy additional facilities, emerging and high-growth companies enter new markets, and large grocers acquire smaller operators. We also bring together experts from a variety of areas, including tax, capital markets, human resources, and regulatory and pensions.
Whether it’s a desire to enter new markets, increase your economies of scale or adopt innovation technologies, developing the right strategy and working with the right experts is critical in today’s food and beverage sector.
