Nactarome acquires Calaf Nuances flavor house as acquisition charge gathers pace
11 May 2023 --- Nactarome has acquired Calaf Nuances, a Spanish-based producer of flavors solutions with broad application expertise across F&B categories. The move marks the company’s fourth acquisition this year, as it continues to expand its product offering. The purchase was completed on May 5, 2023.
Earlier this month, Nactarome acquired Royal Buisman, a producer of natural and clean label caramel ingredients.
The company is focused on providing a comprehensive portfolio of all-in-one natural flavorings, extracts and functional ingredients to the global F&B industry. The group has grown exponentially in the last five years, comprising 13 production sites and over 550 employees.
Cross-market flavor boosts
Nactarome indicates that Calaf Nuances will provide “an interesting addition to its range of sweet and savory flavors and blends for F&B.”
Luigi Del Monaco, CEO at Nactarome, comments: “With this acquisition, we have expanded our presence in the Spanish and Latin America markets and gained access to new competencies and capabilities that will enable us to serve our customers even better.”
“This move aligns with our long-term strategic plan to strengthen our position and create sustainable value for our stakeholders. Our employees have worked tirelessly to make this acquisition a reality and we warmly welcome the new colleagues of Calef Nuances.”
New flavor tech
Calaf Nuances has many international customers across Spain, Europe and Mexico.
The flavor house is recognized for its own-created flavors. Besides molecular flavor creation, it boasts in-house technologies, including biotransformation, maillard reactions, distillation, concentration and encapsulation to create differentiating flavors for every application in the food industry.
Manel Alcaide, managing director of Calaf Nuances, adds: “This union creates a clear improvement of our proposals for the food flavors market. We are glad to say that all our clients worldwide will benefit from all these new opportunities.”
Earlier this year, Thai-China Flavours and Fragrances Industry formed a new strategic partnership agreement with Nactarome, providing a comprehensive portfolio of all-in-one natural flavorings, extracts and functional ingredients to the global F&B industry.
