Storskogen acquires A&K-Die Frische Küche
A&K is a leading manufacturer of ultra-fresh ready meals for social and day care institutions, retirement homes, hospitals, schools, and cantinas. Headquartered in Recklinghausen, Germany, A&K’s 100 employees manufacture around 20,000 meals per day in the cook and chill kitchen with 10 production lines. Via its subsidiary Casino Service, a food-on-wheels company with around 50 employees, A&K’s meals are distributed to various institutions as well as households in the vicinity of its two locations in Wuppertal and Alsdorf. Due to its highly efficient production and distribution set-up, high service approach, and the sustainability focus through its regional farm-to-table procurement, the company has positioned itself as supplier of choice for the leading food service institutions in the region.
Wolfgang Adam, CEO of A&K, will remain in his position after the transaction.
“We are happy to have Storskogen as a new long-term industrial owner. Together we will be able to continue our growth journey and to further improve our product offering for our customers in the region,” says Wolfgang Adam, CEO of A&K.
