Belgian producer of frozen chips Clarebout last week announced that it has acquired potato processor Mydibel, according to a news report by De Tijd.
Mydibel is a family-run potato processing company with three branches in Belgium, employing almost 800 people. The company processes potato products, including fries, croquettes and mashed potatoes, as well as potato flakes and granules. Products are marketed as Mydibel brands, but also as private labels.
Clarebout has approximately 1,800 employees and two processing factories. One branch is located in Nieuwkerke, where the head office is located. The second factory is located in Warneton. This year the company reported a turnover of more than one billion euros.
Clarebout intends to build a new processing factory in Dunkirk, France.
