Acheta is purchased by Kiwa

I am pleased to announce the sale of Acheta Consulting Ltd to Kiwa Ltd.

Kiwa Ltd is part of the international Kiwa organisation owned by the Kiwa Group, an international testing, inspection and certification (TIC) group headquartered in the Netherlands. Kiwa Ltd comprises six UK business areas forming the Kiwa UK Group and has grown rapidly through both organic growth and by acquisition, doubling in size in the last 4 years. Acheta will be an operating division of Kiwa Agri Food, based in Harrogate. Kiwa Agri Food is a UKAS-accredited product conformity certification body, with a BRC 5-star rating as a Certified Body.

Over the past 19 years Acheta has grown to be a highly professional and well respected consultancy. The Agri Food division of Kiwa is a very good fit for what we do, and offers the opportunity for us to expand as part of an international organisation.

Our core business activities, independent pest management inspection, training and consultancy, continue unchanged, as does the Acheta management team.

I have always emphasised that independence is of critical importance to what we do. This status is in no way altered or compromised by the change of ownership.

This is a really exciting development in the future of a unique business.
