Squarefield acted as exclusive financial advisor to the shareholders of Selo Food Group on the sale to Rabo Investments

On March 2, 2022, our client Selo Food Group completed its sale to Rabo Investments. The sale follows the carve-out of Selo Food Group from its ultimate parent company Omori. Current management will continue in its position and will also invest in the company alongside Rabo Investments.

Selo Food Group is a world-class supplier of turnkey processing equipment for the Food and Petfood industry with a strong focus on innovation and customisation. The company is active in various highly attractive growth markets serving as a close partner of some of the largest food producers in the world.

Headquartered in Hengelo, the Netherlands, Selo Food Group is active globally and has sales offices in three other European countries. The company is the processing industry’s market leader in high viscous food products and wet petfood. Selo Food Group is driven to act quickly and to create truly long-term relationships with its customers. The company’s customers include all of the leading blue-chip companies in its niche markets of Petfood, Liquid Food and Meat (Substitutes). The management of Selo Food Group sees a lot of potential to grow independently based on its existing relationships and new products in the pipeline.

With the acquisition, Rabo Investments commits to a new opportunity in the Dutch food processing equipment market, and as an F&A ecosystem investor it aims to support Selo Food Group in its next phase of growth.
