Raisio Group continues to focus on healthy foods according to its strategy. The company divested its confectionery business in December 2017 and is now considering a sale of its feed business as one strategic alternative. Until now, Benecol and Healthy Food businesses have operated as separate organisations and will now be combined into a single Healthy Food Division. During the spring 2018, the company will also initiate measures to simplify the Group’s legal corporate structure.
Pekka Kuusniemi, Raisio Group’s President and CEO says: “To ensure Raisio’s organic growth, we are going to move from a holding-type structure to a model in which all resources are targeted toward supporting the strategic objectives of the Healthy Food Division. Raisio also seeks growth through acquisitions that suit our core business.”
