Sensient Natural Ingredients has completed its purchase of New Mexico Chili Products, a dehydrated chilli production facility in the US.
Located in Deming, New Mexico, the facility processes capsicums and a variety of specialty chillies for CPG food manufacturers, spice blenders and foodservice customers.
“This acquisition aligns with our long-term business strategy to advance our leadership position in select growth categories, as well as fortify our robust supply chain,” said general manager of Sensient Natural Ingredients, Michael Finete.
He added: “This is also an opportunity to better service our customers and satisfy the food industry’s increased demand for on-trend, value-added, natural and organic ingredients that are sustainably sourced and traceable from farm to fork”.
Sensient Natural Ingredients is a North American processer and supplier of dehydrated vegetable products and natural food ingredients such as onion, garlic, and capsicums, as well as jalapeño, habeñero and chipotle.
The company, which is part of Sensient Technologies, established operations in California’s Central Valley over 50 years ago.
“This strategically-located facility not only provides incremental capacity for our growing business but also enables us to broaden our chilli portfolio of products to offer bold flavour solutions to our customers,” said Finete.
