Dawn Foods has announced the acquisition of bakery ingredients manufacturing company, Royal Steensma. Headquartered in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands, Royal Steensma offers a wide range of bakery products, specialising in fat-based coatings (Souplesse), almond and confectionery pastes, bakery mixes, fruit fillings, as well as infused and candied fruits and decorations. The acquisition, which closed on 31 January, includes four manufacturing plants located in the Netherlands, along with a manufacturing facility in Thailand, and continued involvement with the Food Innovation Academy education centre. In addition, all Royal Steensma employees are now members of the Dawn team. Dawn Foods' CEO, Carrie Jones-Barber, said: "We are proud to welcome the team from Royal Steensma to Dawn and to build on our shared bakery knowledge and history of providing incredible products to bakers all around the world. The expansion of our manufacturing capabilities and product portfolio further strengthens our mission to provide customers with bakery solutions that truly inspire and help them achieve their business goals." Alfred Bruin, owner of Royal Steensma, added: "Dawn's century of bakery expertise, long-term vision, commitment to company values and sincere dedication to team members, customers and suppliers were the determining factors in entrusting Royal Steensma to Dawn Foods". "Additionally, Dawn has the same creative entrepreneurial spirit of a family-owned company, which gives me the confidence that the essence of the family business will be safeguarded, providing a promising future with numerous new opportunities for our loyal and valued employees and customers."
