Avignon, 9 June 2014 - Naturex, the global leader in specialty plant-based natural ingredients, informs its shareholders about the acquisition of the activities of Berghausen Corporation, a US-based provider of Quillaja and Yucca extracts developed mainly for the food processing industry.
This investment covers the acquisition of the customer portfolio and formulas (powders and liquids) based on extracts of Quillaja Saponaria and Yucca Schidigera, two natural ingredients specifically used by the food processing industry for carbonated beverages, smoothies, slush-type syrups, beer, juices and many other products requiring enhanced foaming characteristics using substitutes for synthetic emulsifiers or surfactants.
With this acquisition, Naturex has strengthened its positioning as a multi-specialist by adding to its range two native species (Chile for Quillaja Saponaria and Mexico for Yucca Schidigera) with a channel for sourcing consistent with Group's sustainable development approach, and in line with the acquisition of Chile Botanics, a company specialised in the production and marketing of Quillaja extracts, completed in December 2013, and for which Berghausen was the US distributor.
"This modest sized operation will enrich Naturex's range of differentiating raw materials and will promote the development of an offering that combines quality, innovation and sustainability", commented Naturex's CEO, Thierry Lambert.
