Freedom bulks up muesli credentials with $35m acquisition
23rd Oct 2015 — Popina Foods, a market leader in oat-based cereals and snacks, is poised to be bought by ASX-listed good-for-you food company Freedom Foods for $35 million.
Demand for oats rising in Australia and Asia, according to Freedom Foods, and Popina is a recognised leader in cluster format cereals and snacks in Australia.
The company operates out of a 10,500 sqm facility in Dandenong, Victoria. It makes a quarter of its sales from its own brands, Arnold's Farms and Goodness Superfoods, and the rest from its contract manufacturing operations.
The company was founded by Arnold May in 1983. Operating out of a shop front in inner Melbourne, he initially toasted muesli in small oven, blended it in a cement mixer and sold it to a few health stores. Thirty two years later, and Popina now holds more than a third of the Australian muesli market.
