DENMARK - Danish Crown has acquired a slaughter house in Germany that slaughters cattle, pigs and lambs.

Danish Crown is acquiring the German cattle slaughterhouse Teterower Fleisch to become the fifth-largest cattle slaughterhouse in Germany. The purchase price will not be disclosed.

Teterower Fleisch in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, a federal state in what was formerly East Germany, has an annual turnover of 150 million euro, slaughters 110,000 cattle annually, has 187 employees and is privately owned.

The agreement on the acquisition of Teterower Fleisch has been reported to the German federal cartel office (the Bundeskartellamt), which must approve the takeover before it can be finalised.
