Bactoforce, the European market leader for integrity inspections in the liquid food sector, joins forces with QLIP, a Dutch specialist in quality assurance & control in the dairy industry. The acquisition marks an important strategic milestone for QLIP in expanding its service portfolio and geographical footprint in Europe, while at the same time strengthening Bactoforce in its continued growth.
On March 1st 2022, QLIP’s parent company MLZ Holding acquired the majority of the shares in Bactoforce International A/S and is thereby taking a step forward in creating a TIC company (Testing, Inspection, Certification) dedicated to serving the liquid food industry in Europe and beyond.
Digitalisation, application of digital technologies and data-based customer value propositions is becoming increasingly important as a TIC service provider in the food industry. QLIP has over the past 10 years built up strong IT competences on the basis of its current role in supply chain in the Dutch dairy industry and can use this competence to bring Bactoforce several steps forward on this digital journey.
The operating activities will continue under the existing organisations, name and branding. The acquisition also marks the exit for two of the existing owners in Bactoforce, Eigil Appel Pedersen (founder and chairman) and Jørgen Haaning Andersen. For more visit Bactoforce.com
