HUHTAMÄKI OYJ PRESS RELEASE 14.4.2022 AT 16:00 EEST

Huhtamaki to initiate process to divest its Russian operations

Huhtamaki has decided to initiate the process to divest its operations in Russia. This follows an earlier decision to stop all investments in Russia at the outbreak of the invasion of Ukraine. Huhtamaki considers that the current evolution of the situation and the long-term outlook in Russia will prevent the realization of its growth strategy and long-term ambitions in the country. Huhtamaki will continue to prioritize investments that capture the significant growth opportunities in the rest of the world, in line with its global ambitions and 2030 Strategy.

The safety and wellbeing of all our colleagues remain of paramount importance. Huhtamaki has four manufacturing units in Russia, employing approximately 700 people and has successfully supported global and local customers over the last 30 years. The net sales in Russia represent approximately 3% of the Group’s total net sales.

Huhtamaki will explore the market for potential buyers and will maintain its operations during this transitional period, subject to supply chain availability, to meet its contractual and regulatory obligations and to safeguard employees and customers.

Sweegen Wins Stevia Reb M Patent Lawsuit Against PureCircle24.5.2022 11:04:00 CEST | Press release

Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., May 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sweegen, the global pioneer in wellness ingredient technologies and innovations, announced its victory against PureCircle in a stevia Rebaudioside M (Reb M) patent lawsuit. "Today's judgment vindicates Sweegen and affirms the company's position as an industry leader in innovative sweetener solutions," said Steven Chen, CEO of Sweegen. PureCircle, acquired by Ingredion in 2020, had filed the 2018 lawsuit against Sweegen in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, accusing Sweegen of infringing two PureCircle patents covering the manufacture of Reb M. The legal tide turned on PureCircle when Sweegen obtained a summary judgment that both of PureCircle's asserted patents are invalid. Since it is impossible to infringe an invalid patent, the court's invalidation of the asserted patents ends the infringement case against Sweegen at the U.S. District Court.
