Dr Oetker has sold its Onken yoghurt brand to Swiss dairy group Emmi.

The deal, for an undisclosed sum, is subject to regulatory approval.

“Onken is the number one in the UK and the number three in Germany for large pots of yogurt,” said Emmi chief executive Urs Riedener.

“This strong brand will enable us to consolidate our market position in our key markets of the UK and Germany and lay the foundations for further growth with exported Swiss products.”
