CapMan Buyout has sold Solera Beverage Group to Royal Unibrew

Solera is a leading importer and distributor of wine and other beverages across Norway, Sweden and Finland. The group houses over 700 world-renowned brands and sold over 44 million liters of beverages in 2020, reaching sales of NOK 1.9 billion. With a presence in the market spanning close to 100 years, Solera has built a large and diverse brand portfolio of leading international beverage producers, achieved by establishing a deep understanding of the Nordic market and developing innovative ways of bringing producers, distributors and markets together.

Royal Unibrew (CPSE: RBREW) is a beverage company based in Denmark. This acquisition will add Norway and Sweden to Royal Unibrew’s geographical footprint while complementing its already established business in Finland. The combination will create a strong platform for a multi-beverage business across the Nordics and around the Baltic Sea.
