Sensient Technologies is acquiring the natural colour business of GlobeNatural, a natural food and ingredient company based in Lima, Peru. The new entity will operate as Sensient Natural Colors Peru S.A.C.
US-based Sensient Technologies Corporation is a global manufacturer and marketer of colours, flavours and fragrances. It employs advanced technologies at facilities around the world to develop specialty F&B systems, cosmetic and pharmaceutical systems, inkjet and specialty inks and colours, and other specialty and fine chemicals.
“This acquisition is an important component of our ‘seed-to-shelf’ initiative in food colours,” said Paul Manning, chairman and CEO of Sensient Technologies.
“Eighty percent of food products launched globally use natural colours and colouring foodstuffs, and we anticipate that this market will continue to grow. We will continue to innovate and expand our natural colour supply chain portfolio.”
GlobeNatural has more than 25 years’ experience in the sourcing, manufacturing and exporting of natural food ingredients. Its natural colours are used in a wide range of F&B applications worldwide.
