30. Janu­ary 2018

Düssel­dorf / London — ARQIS advi­sed Katjes Fassin GmbH & Co KG (Katjes Germany) on its invest­ment in the British start-up Candy Kittens.

Foun­ded in London in 2012 by Jamie Laing (photo left), star of the British TV series ‘Made in Chel­sea’, and Ed Williams (photo right), the company has quickly become one of the UK’s best-known candy brands with its inno­va­tive gour­met sweets in authen­tic flavors and origi­nal pack­a­ging. All products are gluten-free and are made without arti­fi­cial flavors or colors.

ARQIS regu­larly advi­ses the Katjes Group on tran­sac­tions. The firm also advi­sed the confec­tion­ery manu­fac­tu­rer in 2016 on its entry into Veganz, Europe’s pioneer in vegan food, and in previous years on its acqui­si­ti­ons of confec­tion­ery produ­cers Pias­ten and Dallmann.
