Wessanen and the owners of Abbot Kinney’s have signed and completed the acquisition of Abbot Kinney’s by Wessanen.
Abbot Kinney’s is a young and very dynamic innovation leader in organic almond and coconut based yoghurt alternatives and ice-cream. Founded in 2014, Abbot Kinney’s already built a leading position in its category in Health Food Stores in The Netherlands and has started to build a strong presence in key markets across Europe.
Plant based food is at the heart of the Wessanen strategy and Dairy Alternatives is one of our core categories, present across all key countries in Europe and beyond. Abbot Kinney’s plant based yoghurt alternatives and ice-cream are a welcome addition to Wessanen’s Dairy Alternative category, which until now for the larger part consisted of ambient drinks. Moreover the brand fits very well into Wessanen’s existing portfolio of healthy and sustainable brands.
