Longford based C and D Foods - the pet food firm run by the former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds' family - has announced a deal to buy Danish pet food business Arovit.
This will make it the second-biggest private label operator in the sector in Europe.
The enlarged company will have a turnover of about E320m this year and has a customer base that stretches across Europe.
C and D boss Philip Reynolds said the business will now rank behind Saturn Pet Foods as the second-biggest private label manufacturer of pet foods.
