Driscoll’s Agrees to Terms for the Acquisition of Berry Gardens Limited
LONDON, ENGLAND - With a passionate drive and a ceaseless effort to influence and elevate the berry category, Driscoll’s continues to raise the bar as a global market leader of fresh strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Bringing such vision to the forefront, Driscoll’s has made a major move this month with Berry Gardens Growers Limited (BGG) and has formally agreed on the terms for the purchase of Berry Gardens Limited (BGL), the sales, packaging, and distribution entity of BGG.
Berry Garden Growers is one of the U.K.’s largest berry grower co-operatives.
The relationship between the two operations has been one in the making as Berry Gardens has grown, distributed, and marketed Driscoll’s varieties on an exclusive basis in the U.K. for more than 20 years, according to a press release. Adding to the future of the relationship, the sale of the commercial desk to Driscoll’s is the most recent development in the longstanding dynamic between the companies.
