07 May 2019 | News

"This brand divestiture is in-line with the core objectives of our transformational strategic plan to reduce complexity and streamline our portfolio of brands to drive sustainable growth and shareholder value.”

The Hain Celestial Group, a leading organic and natural products company with operations in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East providing consumers with A Healthier Way of Life™, recently announced that it has completed the divestiture of the WestSoy® tofu, seitan and tempeh businesses to Keystone Natural Holdings, a portfolio company of Keystone Capital focusing on plant based food.  

The strategic divestiture did not include the WestSoy® plant-based beverage business, which has been retained by Hain Celestial. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

"We are pleased to complete the strategic divestiture of the WestSoy tofu, seitan and tempeh businesses," commented Mark L. Schiller, Hain Celestial's President and Chief Executive Officer.  "This brand divestiture is in-line with the core objectives of our transformational strategic plan to reduce complexity and streamline our portfolio of brands to drive sustainable growth and shareholder value.  We believe the WestSoy tofu, seitan and tempeh business, while not core to our strategy, will be a strong performer in the hands of an owner who is committed in this category and will continue to deliver innovative high-quality products to our customers."
