Food and ingredients distributor Batory Foods has acquired Savannah-based Sweetener Solutions for an undisclosed sum.
Sweetener Solutions provides custom formulation options, blending and pre-blending of sweeteners and dry ingredients for applications such as beverage, dairy and bakery.
The company’s proprietary process, Accublend, allows for precise and consistent blending and pre-blending, comprising both conventional and natural high-intensity sweeteners, as well as other dry ingredients.
The acquisition will enable Batory Foods to expand its sweetener ingredient offerings and capabilities, answering consumer demands for trending applications in sugar reduction and replacement and use its expertise in sweetener formulation, blending and packaging.
Vince Pinneri, president at Batory Foods, said: “With specialised, technical expertise in non-nutritive high-intensity sweeteners, Sweetener Solutions has proven itself to be a true leader in its field. We are pleased to complete this acquisition, which will further expand our capabilities and ingredients portfolio to provide sugar reduction and replacement solutions to the market.”
He continued: “We look forward to welcoming many of Sweetener Solutions’ expert associates to our team, combining our collective strengths and creating new opportunities together”.
