``The cooperation with Adiuva has been productive from the beginning, as we share the same values. For me, it was important to have a new shareholder who understands the company and doesn't only see itself as an investor.``
Adiuva assisted Lebensbaum in its entrepreneurial succession process and continues to support the company in its ongoing, successful growth story, both in the specialised natural food trade and in developing alternative distribution channels.
