Flavorsum acquires Meridian

Cake 2

North American flavour producer FlavorSum has added Meridian Flavors, US-based manufacturer specialising in natural, non-GMO and organic flavours to its platform. The acquisition is part of FlavorSum’s strategy to expand resources to support the needs of small, mid-sized and emerging food and beverage companies.

Meridian already has an extensive portfolio of sweet and dairy flavours for bakery and snacks that enhances the existing FlavorSum portfolio. Meridian marks the fifth company joining Flavorsum following on from the 2020 mergers of National Flavors, GSB & Associates and Bonnie & Don Flavours, as well as the 2021 addition of Whittle & Mutch.

“Our commitment to providing solutions for our customers through organic growth, significant investments, and strategic acquisitions remains a top priority. With the onboarding of Meridian Flavors, we strengthen our ability to support our customers’ goals through talent, capabilities, and flavor offerings.” said Brian Briggs, CEO of FlavorSum.

“We’re thrilled to be joining the FlavorSum platform,” commented Richard Lane, President and Owner at Meridian. “We’ll have more flavor and applications capabilities to offer customers. And the resources such as insights expertise and regulatory support will improve our ability to meet our customers’ current needs and expand relationships with new solutions and offerings.”

Following the close Meridian Flavors customers will continue to receive “flavour creation, production and distribution services” under the direction of the FlavorSum team through its facilities in North America.

“FlavorSum and Meridian Flavors have alignment on core values and a commitment to providing an exceptional customer experience,” concluded Briggs. “We look forward to bringing our capabilities and portfolios together to help our current and future customers achieve their growth goals.”
