Singapore’s Olam buys Nigerian food company for $ 66 million

By on June 7, 2012

Singapore commodities trader Olam International Ltd said on Thursday it bought 100 percent of Nigerian dairy and beverage company Kayass Enterprises S.A. for $66.5 million.

Olam said Kayass owns several brands including the beverage “Nature’s Fresh” and that the acquisition would allow it to tap into Nigeria’s fast-growing consumer market, according to Reuters.

This purchase represents just another notch in acquisitions Olam has made in Nigeria.
Earlier this year, Olam bought Titanium holdings, a Nigerian biscuits and Candy maker for $ 167 million.

One could deduce Olam has a strategic expansionary focus based in sub-Saharan Africa.
