LK Shields acted for the Vendors of Walco Foods, a leading Irish trader of animal fats and proteins, on an agreement to sell the company to Neste (NESTE, Nasdaq Helsinki).

The transaction is subject to fulfilment of the customary closing conditions and regulatory approval.

The in-depth knowledge and market understanding developed over the years has helped Walco Foods become a leading animal fat and by-products trading company in Ireland.
