THE Bel Group is acquiring Czech dairy, the Jaromericka Group - the deal involves buying out 100% of J+R and 71.5% of Jaromericka Mlerkarna, two sister companies under the Jaromericka Group. The acquisition includes two manufacturing sites close to the plant that Bel already operates in the southern part of the Czech Republic. Jaromericka collected 87 million litres of milk and produced 15 600 tonnes of cheese in 2007. Its turnover last year reached €54 million. The deal is subject to regulatory approvals from Czech authorities.
