Caldic to Acquire Acatris
Dutch-based international distributor and manufacturer of ingredients and products for the food, chemical and technical industries, Caldic, has reached an agreement to acquire Acatris, located in Bunschoten, the Netherlands and Mechelen, Belgium. The company to be acquired is a supplier of ingredients, services and solutions to the food processing industry.
Caldic said that with this acquisition, it strengthens its range of single ingredients and stabilizer systems. In addition, Acatris’ facilities enrich the custom manufacturing and processing services Caldic offers, such as product development, blending, grinding, repacking and sieving of products.
Olav van Caldenborgh, Caldic’s CEO, said: “Recently Caldic Belgium and Caldic Ingredients in the Netherlands joined forces by forming one Benelux team to guarantee an even better service to customers and a stronger route to market for suppliers. The addition of the tailored and innovative Acatris solutions perfectly aligns with this. It strengthens our position in the market and I’m convinced that both our customers and suppliers will benefit from it.”
Bert Piëst, CEO at Acatris, added: “The customer-centric vision of Caldic perfectly matches the Acatris identity and gives Acatris the opportunity to geographically expand its own ingredient blends via the international Caldic distribution channels.”
