Janoušek’s expertise in natural Italian flavors, in particular, will help Synergy continue to grow its global business and innovate new flavors in the alcoholic, non-alcoholic, dairy, savory, confectionery, and nutraceutical categories, Synergy says.
Flavors, extracts, and essences supplier Synergy Flavors (Wauconda, IL), has acquired Italy-based flavor supplier JanouÅ¡ek (Trieste, Italy), the company announced. According to a press statement from Synergy, JanouÅ¡ek’s expertise in natural Italian flavors, in particular, will help the company continue to grow its global business and innovate new flavors in the alcoholic, non-alcoholic, dairy, savory, confectionery, and nutraceutical categories.
Synergy says that the acquisition will allow it to serve JanouÅ¡ek’s customers in Italy and Eastern Europe. JanouÅ¡ek is “one of the world’s first suppliers of herbal extracts and natural flavoring,” and has served the European market for 135 years, Synergy says.
Through this acquisition, Synergy will also be able to provide its expertise in the dairy and nutrition segments to these European markets. Noted Steve Morgan, CEO, Synergy Flavors EMEA, in the press release: “We’re thrilled to be welcoming the JanouÅ¡ek business into our group as it brings new expertise and products into our natural flavor, essences, and extracts portfolio, and complements our long heritage in dairy processing in Ireland and vanilla extraction in the U.S.”
Morgan added that Synergy has no plans for major or immediate changes to JanouÅ¡ek’s company structure. Post-acquisition, Synergy will focus on growing the JanouÅ¡ek team, and adding new skills and capacity to the Italian manufacturing site. “The Italian site has an excellent record for high-quality manufacturing and offers room for growth with easy access to much of mainland Europe,” he said.
Synergy Flavors, part of Carbery Group, supplies flavors, essences, and extracts to the global food and beverage industries. It maintains commercial, manufacturing and technical support facilities in Ireland, the U.K., the U.S., Brazil, and Thailand.
