Nactarome buys natural caramel ingredients supplier Royal Buisman

Nactarome, a manufacturer of natural taste and colour solutions for the F&B industry, has announced that it has completed its acquisition of Royal Buisman, a Dutch producer of natural, clean label caramel ingredients. The company says its latest acquisition, which was solely advised by Rothschild&Co, will help to create a strategic presence in the Netherlands. With more than 150 years of experience, Royal Buisman's caramel ingredients have broad applications and functionality in multiple F&B categories. The company will complement Nactarome's portfolio, while increasing geographical reach and blue-chip customer exposure. With the acquisition, Nactarome grows its portfolio of all-in-one natural flavourings, extracts, colours and functional ingredients. Royal Buisman has a network of blue-chip customers across Benelux, Europe, South East Asia and North America, with a strong portfolio of dry powder and liquid caramel products that offer flavouring, colouring and texture solutions. Robert Hoopman, CEO of Royal Buisman, commented: “Our management team sees huge potential in joining the Nactarome group to create a leading natural ingredients company. The combined business offers a great opportunity to pursue attractive synergies by creating innovative flavour and colour solutions to the benefit of customers across international food markets.” Luigi Del Monaco, CEO of Nactarome, added: “We are thrilled to announce our recent acquisition of Royal Buisman and welcome the talented team and strong 'clean label' products into our organisation. This strategic move aligns with Nactarome long-term growth goals and strengthens our position in the market. We look forward to the exciting opportunities and continued success ahead as we integrate and collaborate with our new partners.” Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
