CMA provisional clearance of Pork Farms' aquisition of Kerry Foods' chilled savory pastry assets

21 April 2015

The Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) has posted that it has provisionally cleared Pork Farms Group’s acquisition of the chilled savoury pastry business of Kerry Foods.  

In response, Chris Peters, Group Managing Director at Pork Farms Group, said:  

“We are very pleased with the CMA’s provisional conclusion that the merger has not resulted, and may not be expected to result, in a substantial lessening of competition.  However, we are aware these findings are currently provisional and that we are still subject to the interim order, which requires us to continue to hold the acquired businesses separate.  We continue to cooperate fully with the CMA.”
