Doehler is acquiring SVZ to bolster its portfolio in red fruit and vegetable ingredients and extend its market presence in the US and Asia, subject to regulatory approval. According to Doehler, customers will benefit from an even broader ingredient portfolio and larger raw material base as a result of this deal.

Financial details have not been disclosed.

Headquartered in the Netherlands, SVZ is known for its high-quality purees, concentrates and ingredients of sustainably sourced vegetables and red berries.

The business has production sites in the US, Spain, Poland and Belgium, established a strong global presence and built a base of premium customers in the food, beverage and life science and nutrition industries.

Spotlighting synergies
The natural ingredients company has targeted SVZ because of its experience and operational excellence, which “perfectly complements its sourcing, production and supply chain capabilities.”

“SVZ’s products seamlessly integrate with Doehler’s portfolio of natural ingredients and ingredient systems,” says a company announcement.

This acquisition highlights how the increasing consumer interest in healthier nutrition is creating a rising demand for ingredients that offer better nutritional value and superior sensory experiences from sustainable raw materials.

SVZ offers a variety of low-calorie, high-fiber and nutrient-rich fruit and vegetable ingredients that enhances the overall nutritional content of food and beverages.
