Swiss Potato Processor Kadi AG gets new ownership as German private equity investor Paragon Partners has agreed to sell its majority share shares in the company to Invision, an investment company in Zug (CH), thereby securing KADI’s long-term, independent perspective as leading supplier of premium potato products in Switzerland.
KADI’s management team, led by CEO Christof Lehmann, remains in office unchanged and reinvests alongside Invision.
Paragon Partners acquired KADI in a secondary buyout from Equity Capital Management GmbH (ECM) in June 2013.
Under the stewardship of Paragon Partners, management and the supervisory board have successfully worked on a number of improvement initiatives to secure KADI’s position as the leading producer of Swiss premium potato products.
The well-established management team assures the continuity of KADI as an important player in the Swiss food service and retail sector.
Founded in 1951, the company has become specialised in producing high-quality refrigerated and frozen products for the catering and retail sector.
In 2017, KADI achieved sales of CHF 75 million with 180 employees.
