Dutch food company Wessanen has completed the sale of its French wholesale fruits and vegetables business Bio-Distrifrais for an undisclosed sum.

Bio-Distrifrais employs 44 people and had net revenue of €19m in 2013, Wessanen said. A company spokesperson told FoodNavigator that the business had been bought by Box 66, a French holding company.

Wessanen said in a statement that the divestment was in line with its strategy to build its own brands in Europe’s healthy and sustainable food sector. The company’s brands include Bjorg, Allos, Alter Eco, Bonneterre, Clipper and Zonnatura, among others.
