Food giant Nestle and Britain’s R&R Ice Cream have completed a transaction to create their new Froneri ice cream and frozen food joint venture, Nestle said on Monday.

“With sales of around 2.6 billion euros ($2.92 billion), Froneri will operate in 22 countries across the world, employing around 15,000 people,” Froneri said on its website.

The 50/50 joint venture announced in April will combine Nestle and R&R ice cream businesses across Europe, the Middle East, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, the Philippines and South Africa.
