DWF advises PepsiCo UK on juice manufacturing sale

Legal business DWF has advised PepsiCo UK & Ireland on the recent sale of its Boxford Farm juice processing and manufacturing business to Belgian-headquartered drinks manufacturer and supplier Koning Juices & Drinks UK. The Boxford Farm business produces well-known juice brands including Copella and Trop50, which will continue to be supplied under the new ownership.  

PepsiCo UK and Ireland and Konings Juices & Drinks UK have also entered into a long term manufacturing agreement, whereby Konings Juices & Drinks UK will supply juice to PepsiCo. The Copella and Trop50 brands are not part of the deal and still belong to PepsiCo.

The deal was led by corporate partner Jay Birch with support from solicitor Megan Carr.
