Claritas are delighted to have advised the shareholders of Yew Tree Diary, a family-owned dairy and milk processor in the UK, on its sale to Müller. The completion of the deal is expected later this year subject to approval from the Competition and Markets Authority.

This transaction, led by Matthew Hodgson, Peter Hully, Cass Cornforth, Zahra Davda, Stuart Brodie and Minesh Trivedi, represents an exciting step for Müller. It will benefit customers, consumers, suppliers, and employees of both businesses, whilst offering supplying farmers long-term security.

Matthew Hodgson, Partner comments “This is a significant investment in the British dairy industry, underlining the ambitious growth of Müller whilst building a better future for the industry.  It was a pleasure to work with Carl Woodcock and the shareholders of Yew Tree Diary. This was a real team effort with invaluable contributions from our multi-disciplinary Transaction Taxes team, showcasing the talent and expertise that we have here at Claritas. We wish all the best of luck with their future plans and every success with Muller’s exciting growth plans.”
