Dobla DV, producer and global supplier of premium chocolate decorations, has announced the sale of 100% of its shares to Irca, one of the leading European manufacturers of semi-finished ingredients for bakery, pastry, ice cream, and chocolate based in Italy.
This union will strengthen Dobla’s growth capabilities, due to the broad portfolio of combined products, access to Irca’s sophisticated R & D network, and the route to the market for new channels in the growing food service market. Arthur Dontje, majority owner of Dobla, is convinced that “this new established company will create an undisputed world leader in premium ingredients for the pastry market. This transaction will benefit our combined customer base, to which the new company will be able to offer a complete service solution worldwide. ”
Irca will be able to benefit from the worldwide distribution network and from Dobla’s superior quality chocolate decoration offer. “With this acquisition, we will increase our geographical presence and significantly reinforce the company’s position for further growth in Europe, the United States, and around the world. We look forward to working with Dobla as we embark on new opportunities and accelerate growth, particularly in the United States and the Asia Pacific region, “says Paolo Perego, CEO of Irca.
