Carbery Group, the West Cork-based international ingredients, flavours, and award-winning cheese producer, has announced the acquisition of leading savoury flavour and ingredient supplier, Innova Flavors, from Griffith Foods Worldwide.
The new company will be an addition to Synergy, Carbery’s international flavours business. Acquiring Innova brings a new range of savoury solutions to customers who partner with Synergy on the creation and growth of their product portfolios.
Known in the US for their sweet flavours, extracts and essences, this strategic purchase expands the savoury capabilities of Synergy US and complements Synergy’s offerings worldwide.
TJ Sullivan, Chairman of Carbery Group commented, “Through a series of acquisitions in the UK, the USA, Europe, South America and Asia, we have successfully built Synergy, our international flavours business. This new acquisition brings new opportunities with customers and markets that will strengthen the returns across our whole business.”
This acquisition is another significant business development in the last 12 months, with the company also seeing the opening of their expanded cheese facility towards the end of 2020, and diversification into producing mozzarella for international markets.
Innova supplies customised savoury flavours and ingredients to customers around the world. Their manufacturing facilities are based in the Chicago area, as is the HQ of Synergy US.
