Batory Foods acquires Sweetener Solutions

Batory Foods has acquired Sweetener Solutions, which specializes in custom sweetener formulation, precision blending, and specialty portion packaging.

Batory Foods (Rosemont, IL) has acquired Sweetener Solutions (Savannah, GA), which specializes in custom sweetener formulation, precision blending, and specialty portion packaging. As a national distributor of natural, alternative sweeteners, and the recent launch of Batory Sweet Essentials, the acquisition is a natural fit for Batory Foods. It will broaden Batory’s ingredient offerings and capabilities with access to Sweetener Solutions proprietary, high intensity sweetener blends. With its location in Savannah, GA, the acquisition of Sweetener Solutions also gives Batory access to one of the biggest ports in the U.S., which will benefit supply chain efficiencies.

“With specialized, technical expertise in non-nutritive high intensity sweeteners, Sweetener Solutions has proven itself to be a true leader in its field,” said Vince Pinneri, president at Batory Foods, in a press release. “We are pleased to complete this acquisition, which will further expand our capabilities and ingredients portfolio to provide sugar reduction and replacement solutions to the market. We look forward to welcoming many of Sweetener Solutions’ expert associates to our team, combining our collective strengths and creating new opportunities together.”

“Becoming part of an organization like Batory Foods marks an exciting milestone for Sweetener Solutions,” said Mike Lasky, CEO of Sweetener Solutions. “This acquisition will allow us to leverage Batory’s vast network of longtime customers and business relationships to accelerate growth and advance our position in the marketplace, while continuing in our shared mission to deliver the highest quality ingredients and service to our customers.”

Lasky will remain CEO of Sweetener Solutions following the transaction’s closing and many key members of the team have accepted positions within Batory Foods to ensure a smooth transition for both parties.
