The merger was announced on June 12 and will take effect on July 1, the SITA newswire reported.

“The aim of the merger is to strengthen the stability of the company,” said Miroslav Maňásek, general director of Bongrain Slovensko, adding that this process will also simplify administrative matters. The name of the merged company will be Milex NMNV and it will be based in Liptovský Mikuláš.

The Bongrain group was created in 1956 and is one of the biggest milk processors in the world. It specialises in cheese production but is also active in the production of meat, seafood, fruit and confectionery products.

Liptovská Mliekareň was purchased by Bongrain in 2000 and specialises in production of hard and steamed cheeses and bryndza.
