Harris Williams advises graze on sale to Unilever

Harris Williams, an investment bank specialising in M&A advisory services, advised on the sale of Nature Delivered (trading as graze), a portfolio company of Carlyle Europe Technology Partners, to Unilever.

graze is a technology-enabled healthy snacks brand that sells its products online directly to consumers, and in retail.
The transaction, led by Glenn Gurtcheff, William Bain, Ryan Freeman, Andreas Poth, Andy Warczak and Faye Maughan of Harris Williams’ Consumer Group, extends the firm’s track record in the healthy snack sector.
“Unilever is a strong cultural fit for graze – they share a common vision for the roles healthy snacking and direct-to-consumer will play in helping to shape the future landscape of food,” says Ryan Freeman, a director at Harris Williams. “The partnership between the two businesses provides a compelling platform for future growth. We wish them all the best for the future.”
“graze is a unique, innovative company and a pioneer in the healthy snack sector, well positioned at the forefront of evolving consumer preferences and trends. It has been a privilege to work with graze’s senior team to find the right partner,” says William Bain, a managing director at Harris Williams.
