Compared with 81 deals in the previous two months, I recorded just 17 in October. Seven of these were in the dairy sector and four in alcohol. Most were international, involving 20 countries. The US and France participated in four each, with New Zealand the next most prolific on three.
The biggest transaction was the completion of the previously announced US formation of AdvancePierre Foods.
