Boettger Gruppe acquires Jahnke, buys second production facility

German confectionery manufacturer Boettger Gruppe has acquired Jahnke Süßwaren from Ragolds Invest. The owner of the Cavendish & Harvey brand is expanding its brand and product range to include liquorice specialities, while also acquiring a second production facility in close proximity to its company location in Kaltenkirchen, Germany. The two sites in Kaltenkirchen will be closely linked, fostering collaboration, utilising resources more effectively and promoting innovation. Alexander Mock, managing partner of Boettger Gruppe, said: "Having already worked successfully with Jahnke, this acquisition is a logical next step in expanding our production capacities and making us more flexible". Frank Gemmrig, managing director of Cavendish & Harvey, added: "The acquisition of Jahnke is strategically important for us in two ways. On the one hand, the liquorice specialities of the Jahnke brand are a sensible addition to our existing range. On the other hand, finding a production facility close to our own site is a stroke of luck."

"This will increase our flexibility and give us additional capacity. In this way, we are preserving existing jobs, creating new ones and contributing to the future economic development of the region.” Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
