Triton-backed Geia Food – Acquisition of Topfoods companies

We acted as the Finnish legal advisor for Geia Food, a portfolio company of Triton Smaller Mid-Cap Fund II, in its acquisition of Topfoods Finland Oy and TFR Topfoods Retailing Oy. With this acquisition, Geia Food is expanding its footprint in the Nordics and expands on the Finnish foodservice and industrial product market.

Geia Food is the leading supplier of food concepts in Scandinavia with approximately 120 employees and has offices in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland.
