OC&C advises Aston Manor on Agrial Group deal
OC&C Strategy Consultants is pleased to congratulate Aston Manor on their sale to French farming cooperative Agrial Group. OC&C supported Aston Manor with vendor due diligence, leveraging our deep expertise in the alcoholic drinks sector.
Established in 1983, Aston Manor is the largest independently owned cider maker in the UK. They currently export a range of ciders to more than 20 countries including US, Russia and a number of countries in Africa.
Agrial is a French farming and food cooperative which operates in four sectors: milk, fresh vegetables and fruit, beverages and meat. Originally based in Normandy France, the Group has regularly expanded since its creation to become one of the leading French farming cooperatives and is today present in Europe, Africa and the United States. The Beverage division operates in a number of sectors, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic and is France’s largest producer of cider.
The transaction is another in a series that we have supported in our drinks practice where we have extensive experience stretching across global brand and private label leaders to emerging and disruptive brands.
