WILD Flavors Inc has acquired Ohio-based Alfrebro, LLC - a leading manufacturer of natural extracts and aroma chemicals - for an undisclosed sum.
The deal- the latest in a string of recent acquisitions for the natural ingredients giant - will add unique flavors, extracts, and aromas for the food and beverage market to WILD’s portfolio, and strengthen its focus on health and wellness, said Michael Ponder, Global CEO of WILD Flavors GmbH.
“Alfrebro’s business will provide improved raw material access while strengthening our existing flavor and extract capabilities. By broadening our product offering and by providing a truly global supply chain, our customers will profit from WILD Flavors’ unique full-solution approach as the single source of supply for every ingredient needed to produce a high-quality, finished product.”
Vince Macciocchi, COO of WILD Flavors Inc, which is based in Erlanger, Kentucky, added: “The opportunities with Alfrebro represent vertical integration, access to new flavor ingredients, increased manufacturing capabilities and additional cost savings.”
Based in Zug, Switzerland, WILD Flavors GmbH is one of the world’s leading suppliers of natural ingredients to the food and beverage industry, with production sites in the US, Europe, Canada, China, Japan, India, Brazil, and Dubai.
