Sweet Harvest Foods Holdings acquires Sweet River Honey

US-based natural sweetener platform, Sweet Harvest Foods Holdings (SHFH), has bought beekeeping business Sweet River Honey. The deal will expand SHFH’s operations and portfolio as it acquires Texas-based Sweet River Honey’s hives and beekeeping experience. Ken Stickevers, CEO of SHFH, said: “Sweet Harvest Foods Holdings is deeply committed to growing the natural sweetener market with the highest-quality honey. By adding Sweet River Honey to our portfolio of companies, we can continue to build trust with customers by advancing best-in-class beekeeping practices and increasing transparency in the honey market.” Matt Halbgewachs, founder of Sweet River Honey, added: “Sweet River Honey provides pure honey with a hive-to-table philosophy. By combining our passion for pure honey and sustainable beekeeping with the depth of expertise and resources of Sweet Harvest Foods Holdings, we can be part of a team that helps more people discover the way bees intend honey to be – 100% pure, raw and unfiltered.” Last year, SHFH merged Sweet Harvest Foods with US branded honey company, Nature Nate’s Honey Co. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
