AVELLUM ADVISES MHP ON INVESTMENT INTO FOODZ

AVELLUM acted as the legal counsel to its long-standing client MHP in connection with investment into Ukrainian food-tech start-up Foodz. As a result of two rounds of funding, MHP received a minority stake in Foodz.

AVELLUM provided legal support to MHP in structuring the deal and drafting the transaction documents.

MHP is the leading poultry producer in Europe and one of the biggest grain producers in Ukraine. The company specialises in the production of chicken and the cultivation of cereals and other agricultural activities. As a part of MHP’s strategy to support new businesses, the company aims to strengthen its relations with the restaurant business to bring the company closer to the customer.

Foodz is a dark kitchen start-up that has been developing an online restaurant chain in Kyiv since 2020. It has already raised investments of over USD2 million and now manages 12 brand restaurants with over 100 000 customers.

AVELLUM team was jointly led by counsel Andriy Romanchuk and associate Yuliia Chelebii-Kravchenko with support from associate Yelyzaveta Kashyna and under the general supervision of managing partner Mykola Stetsenko. Senior associate Anastasiya Voronova advised on the financial matters of the deal.
