North American flavour producer FlavorSum Beverage Solutions has acquired Whittle & Mutch, a US-based formulator of flavours for carbonated and still beverages.
The acquisition will enable FlavorSum to expand its solutions resources and ability to meet the needs of small, mid-sized and emerging food and beverage companies.
Whittle & Mutch features will help to strengthen FlavorSum’s position in the category, and is the fourth company to join the FlavorSum platform following its 2020 acquisition of National Flavors, GSB & Associates and B&D Flavours.
“We remain focused on developing our presence in North America through solid organic growth and strategic acquisitions like Whittle & Mutch. Our strategy includes building talent, capabilities, and partnerships to create solutions that support our customers’ ability to grow and deliver great products to consumers,” said Brian Briggs, FlavorSum CEO.
“We’re anticipating an exciting alliance with FlavorSum,” said John Mutch, III, Whittle & Mutch VP Corporate Secretary. “Our legacy of providing customers with innovation, quality, integrity, and service fits well with FlavorSum’s business model and values.”
“And we’re pleased that Whittle & Mutch’s tradition of flavour excellence and superior flavour systems will continue to serve current and new customers,” said Richard Mutch, VP and treasurer.
“We value and respect Whittle & Mutch’s 129-year history of cultivating beverage expertise,” added Briggs. “We look forward to bringing a comprehensive set of flavour solutions and an outstanding experience to help customers reach their growth targets.”
