Merger in animal by-products okayed
Monday 02 July 2012
On 29 June, the European Commission cleared the acquisition of joint control over the company Daka Denmark A/S by SARIA (recycling of animal by-products, Germany) and Danish Crown (the largest slaughterhouse in Denmark). The newly created company, Daka Denmark A/S, will be active in animal rendering (abattoir by-products) and the manufacture of different products that are used inter alia in the pet food, animal feed, oleo-chemical and fertiliser industries or as fuel substitutes in energy production. The Commission’s investigation confirmed that the merger would not significantly alter competition.
