Cuatrecasas has advised Tresmares Private Equity on its acquisition of a 25% stake in Grupo Avícola Rujamar through an auction process
With this transaction, the independent alternative investment platform promoted by Banco Santander acquires a 25% stake in Grupo Avícola Rujamar, a Spanish leader in the production of chicken eggs founded by the Martínez Hernaiz family in the 1980s, now led by its CEO Rubén Martínez.
The poultry group is the leading alternative producer in Spain of free-run, free-range and organic eggs, working with cage-free hens. Focused on sustainability and animal welfare, the group is a pioneer in transforming the industry toward cage-free production systems. Its business philosophy fits with that of Tresmares, which is centered on accompanying high-growth SMEs in their development by offering customized solutions.
