Farrer & Co has advised S-Ventures Plc on its acquisition of the business and assets of Livia’s Health Foods Limited. Livia’s is a manufacturer of natural, plant-based snacks and treats. Livia’s range of gluten and dairy free products are stocked in major UK retailers.
The acquisition of Livia’s adds to S-Ventures’ growing stable of health food businesses, following the acquisition of Pulsin Limited in the summer of 2021. Scott Livingston, S-Ventures Chief Executive Officer commented:
"The Livia's team have done a fantastic job in establishing and building a respected and successful brand and set of healthy plant-based snacking products across multiple channels. As part of the S-Ventures Group Livia's can expand and progress and become a mainstream player in this growing natural based products market. I am very excited about the prospects of this innovative business and the enthusiasm of its management team."
The Farrer & Co team was led by Anthony Turner and David Fletcher and included Georgina Fraser, Zaid Dadah (all Corporate), Hannah Taylor (Employment), Peter Wienand and Jeremy Isaacson (both Intellectual Property & Commercial).
