Crispy Food has agreed to acquire Constantia Flexibles’ Toppers business, a pure Top Cup / Toppers co-packing business, located in Rybnik, Poland, in a move to solidify its position as a leading partner for the European dairy and food industry.
Since 2004 the Rybnik-based Toppers plant has been serving its customers as a full-service co-packer of toppers. The Topper or Top Cup is a plastic snap-on cup filled with granola, cereals, or other topping, which is applied on top of a portion-pack cup, e.g., filled with yoghurt. After recent investments, the plant now produces almost 100 million Toppers per year.
Crispy Food is already an active player in the toppers industry with a strong foothold in the Nordics and Western Europe. As Denmark’s largest producer of cereal and breakfast products, Crispy Food has more than 100 years of experience and is a leading partner for R&D and product development to the dairy and broader food industry.
“Our acquisition of the toppers business is a strong signal of our ambition to become the leading toppers partner to the European dairy and food industry. We believe in the long-term market opportunities driven by an increased demand for on-the-go and convenient food solutions, as well as hygiene-friendly portion-pack products” says Christian Bring, CEO of Crispy Food.
”We are happy to have found with Crispy Food, one of the leading food experts on the market, to take over the “Toppers” business. Their food expertise, combined with the packaging expertise that has been built up at this facility, will create an ideal synthesis for our customers”, says Pim Vervaat, CEO of Constantia Flexibles.
With the acquisition of Constantia Flexibles’ toppers-business, Crispy Food has strengthened its unique position to serve customers and consumers all over Europe with attractive, sustainable and innovative food and packaging solutions.
