Spanish glass packaging supplier Juvasa Group has been acquired by Berlin Packaging.

Sevilla-based Juvasa Group is a group of companies focused on the supply of glass, plastic, and metal packaging for the food and beverage industry, founded in 1987.

It supplies glass bottles and jars for olive oil, wine, spirits, sauces, vegetable preserves and honey.

It is a family-owned business founded by Juan Valle Santos and now led by Jesús Valle Sánchez, the founder’s son.

Juvasa Group has locations throughout Spain, Portugal, and the Canary Islands, and also offers custom packaging design services through Avanza Packaging, its in-house design studio.

Paolo Recrosio, CEO of Berlin Packaging, EMEA said: "With the addition of the Juvasa Group, Berlin Packaging is by far the largest packaging distributor in Iberia, a crucial market in Europe.

“More importantly, our combination with the Juvasa Group allows us to offer even more products and services to our customers, helps our suppliers continue to grow their businesses, and creates more career opportunities for our employees.”

“As a family business, it was of the utmost importance that we select the best partner for the future,” added Jesús Valle Sánchez, CEO of the Juvasa Group.

“We are confident that our relationship with Berlin Packaging will enable us to bring even more value to our customers and strengthen our position as a market leader in Iberia and beyond.”

The acquisition of Juvasa Group is the 16th acquisition that Berlin Packaging has completed in EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) since 2016 and its 6th acquisition in EMEA during 2021.

All employees and locations for the Juvasa Group will be retained.
