Dutch-based international distributor and manufacturer of ingredients and products for the food, chemical and technical industries, Caldic, has completed its acquisition of R2 Group, based in Denmark.

Sellers were the company’s management and Danish private equity fund Maj Invest Equity. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Caldic CEO Olav van Caldenborgh said the buyout supports his company’s focus on innovation to extend its full service capabilities.
