Sensient Technologies has acquired Flavor Solutions, a New Jersey-based provider of flavours and flavour technologies to the food, beverage and nutraceutical markets.
The deal – which was made for an undisclosed sum – will see Sensient expand its traditional flavour offering.
Based in Piscataway, Flavor Solutions is a custom product and flavour development company which serves producers of prepared foods and beverages, as well as the foodservice and nutraceutical industries.
As part of the deal, Sensient will also gain access to the firm’s savoury reaction flavours, natural shelf-life extender technologies and sweetness enhancing and salt reduction taste-modulation technology platforms.
Flavor Solutions’ portfolio includes SweetTech, MicroFresh, Tenderseal and Tenderbake.
“The acquisition of this business will allow Sensient to expand its flavour portfolio and add key technologies to strengthen its technical solution capabilities,” said Paul Manning, chairman, president and CEO of Sensient Technologies.
“I am excited to welcome the Flavor Solutions team to Sensient and to support the strong customer relationships that the team has built,” he added.
The acquisition continues Sensient’s efforts to create a more focused portfolio of food and pharmaceutical colours, flavours, extracts and natural ingredients. As part of this refocus, the company divested assets related to the production of its yogurt fruit preparations product line to Frulact last year.
