Acquisition of Theha BV by management and Berk Partners

On April 25, 2018, Theha BV, producer of the well-known coconut bread slices and coconut cubes, was taken over by the management team, Gijs Kakebeeke and René Jansen, with Berk Partners as financial sponsor. Former owner Bram Theunisse takes a step back and remains involved in the background as a shareholder.

The family business Theha b.v. makes coconut products since 1954. Bram Theunisse, the third generation of this coconut bread bakery family, grew up with the company and its products. In the 18 years that he was at the helm, the production activities have moved to a modern production location and he has managed to create strong growth with innovative product concepts without losing sight of grandpa’s old-fashioned tasty recipes.

After this intensive and successful period, he chose to transfer the company to Berk Partners, Kakebeeke and Jansen. They have the desire and the ambition to further develop the proven success formula with the right knowledge and new energy. This includes the further development of export and a greater focus on plant and health, with no added sugars.

The new CEO Kakebeeke has a broad background in the food industry and is looking forward to taking over the operational management of the company. Jansen, with his 13 years of experience within the company, will continue to focus on commerce, development and quality in order to realize the growth. Bram Theunisse remains involved as an advisor.
