Simmons & Simmons has advised German dairy company DMK GmbH and its subsidiary DOC Dairy Partners B.V. on the acquisition of the brand and the Dutch business operations of Uniekaas, a Dutch producer of well-known cheese brands.
The acquisition is a logical step in DOC Dairy Partners’ strategy to expand in European growth markets. As a result, DOC will operate an entire production chain, enabling full competition with other cheese producers. This will bring clear benefits to the cheese market in the Netherlands, notably in terms of greater variety.
Simmons & Simmons advised with a team led by Rob Hendriks (Picture) and including Peter Flipsen, Sandra Voet-van de Wijdeven, Martijn Stuart, Michiel Boer, Jurgen van Beest, Pieter-Bas den Brave and Geneviève Borremans.
