Cuatrecasas advises Costa Business Group on acquiring Industrias Cárnicas Villar


Cuatrecasas advised the Costa Business Group, a holding company in the meat industry (pig farming, meat products including chicken, and fresh produce), on acquiring 28.12% of Industrias Cárnicas Villar.

With this transaction, Costa Business Group acquires the remaining share capital it was lacking and becomes the sole shareholder of Industrias Cárnicas Villar, thus consolidating its commitment to full integration in its production line of pork products.

Lawyers from the Cuatrecasas Zaragoza office Antonio GarcíaMara Tomás and Guillermo Giménez advised on the transaction.

The Villar Group is a leading company in the cured meat sector. It owns two production plants, located in Los Rábanos (Soria) and Burguillos del Cerro (Badajoz). It is a partner of the most important slaughterhouse for Iberian pigs in Extremadura and one of the largest facilities in Spain.
