Ingredients company Nactis Flavours has acquired the aromatic raw materials portfolio of France’s PCAS Group.
The deal will reinforce Nactis Flavours’ product portfolio, one year after acquiring the Belgian company Robertet Savoury. The PCAS aromatic raw materials range will complement its Synarome brand, specialised in aromatic raw materials and distilled essential oils.
These new raw materials will drive innovation by offering new flavour composition opportunities, Paris-based Nactis Flavours said. The firm currently allocates close to 7% of its annual budget to research and development, and is in the process of building a new R&D centre of excellence at its Bondoufle headquarters.
“These new activities will allow Nactis Flavours to become one of the leading European manufacturers of niche aromatic molecules”, says Hervé Lecesne, president and founder of Nactis Flavours. The company will also increase its production and R&D capabilities to expand its production of aroma chemicals and advanced aromatic raw materials, including through biocatalysis in the future.
