The European Commission has cleared the acquisition of Slaney Foods and Slaney Proteins by Larry Goodman’s ABP Group and Britain's Fane Valley.

The Commission said it had given the green light to the deal after investigating markets for purchasing live cattle, sheep and lambs for slaughter, and the sale of fresh meat and animal by-products. The Commission said the deal would not raise competition concerns.
