I’ll carry on providing monthly summaries, but the database will be continuously updated, so you can check it at any time.
I recorded 36 deals in January, including two over $1bn: Danisco going for $6.3bn and Smurfit-Stone for $3.5bn.
10 were alcohol, 7 in ingredients, 7 in soft drinks, 5 in general food and 4 in dairy.
14 were within individual countries and 22 across borders. 11 involved the US (mainly as a purchaser), 7 touched on the UK (weighted more as a seller), 5 affected China and 4 impacted on Germany.
The database already notes 26 more purchases in February. Do let me know if I’ve missed anything important.
