Founded in 2000, JOBmeal is a dedicated out-of-home coffee business headquartered in Stockholm, offering a range of office coffee solutions to customers in Sweden and Finland. It employs more than 370 associates in the Nordics.
George Schoof, General Manager JDE Professional Nordics, said: “The addition of JOBmeal to our Nordic family will enable us to expand our reach in Sweden and Finland.
“Together we will be better able to serve the evolving needs of customers at all levels, through a truly Nordic footprint.”
JOBmeal primarily serves small and medium businesses; and says that becoming part of JDE will allow it to give consumers access to JDE brands such as Gevalia, Piazza D’Oro, L’Or and Pickwick.
Subject to pre-closing conditions, the transaction is expected to close during Q4 2018.
