Dutch based company Acatris, recently formed through the merger of food and health companies Daminco, Orffa Health & Nutrition, Schouten USA and SoyLife Nederland, has sold the assets and the business of its brewery division to UK trader Lupofresh.

The sales consists of the Belgian and English hop-business of Acatris​. On 4 October 2002 Lupofresh, a hop merchant and trader based in Kent, UK, will take over all employees of the brewery division and will continue the business under the former name of Morris Hanbury.

RSG acquired the brewery activities of Morris Hanbury (UK) and De Coninck (BE) in 1999. The company claimed that the divestment of these activities is in line with Acatris' strategy to focus on the markets for food and health ingredients.

In August this year Acatris announced its intention to attack the UK health ingredients market with increased sales operations. The UK is among the top three countries in Europe expected to see the fastest growth rate in the European health ingredients market.

The Royal Schouten Group is an internationally operating group of companies, active in the development, production, marketing and sales of ingredients and additives for human and animal health and nutrition industries.
