Kerry Group plc / Quest International

OFT closed case: Anticipated acquisition by Kerry Group plc of the Food Ingredients Business of Quest International.

Affected market: Food ingredients

No. ME/1677/04

On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the anticipated acquisition by Kerry Group plc of the food ingredients Business of Quest International does not qualify for investigation under the mergers provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002, because neither the UK turnover test nor the share of supply test in section 23 of the Act is met. A relevant merger situation has, therefore, not been created.
