Eversheds advises Verlinvest on Genius investment

Eversheds has advised Verlinvest, a family-owned investment company based in Brussels, on its investment in Genius Foods.

The association with Verlinvest and capital investment will allow Genius to accelerate its delivery of top-quality free-from foods in the UK, its category innovation in ‘free from’ and its international expansion.

Both Genius and Verlinvest say they are committed to improving the choice and quality food offering for those consumers who avoid gluten or are looking to live a lower-gluten lifestyle.

The Eversheds team was led by partner Catherine Eley, assisted by senior associate Anthony Cross and associate Simon Grimshaw.
