GHENT, BELGIUM — United Petfood announced its acquisition of two production facilities from Cargill on Nov. 30. Located in Krezpice, Poland, and Karcag, Hungary, the facilities produce dry pet food.

Founded in 1994, United Petfood operates 20 high-end pet nutrition kitchens, producing dry and wet food and treats for dogs and cats. The company exports its products to more than 80 countries. With the addition of the two Cargill facilities, United Petfood now operates 21 factories spanning nine European countries.

According to United Petfood, the acquisition of the facilities is in line with its strategy to reinforce its presence throughout Europe and further its business.

This transaction follows several recent acquisitions for the company. In October the company acquired animal feed manufacturer Gold Line Feeds, and earlier this year it acquired the “la Braconne” facility from Neodis Group.
