Fifth acquisition for Frutarom in 2017

Frutarom Industries Ltd. (“Frutarom”), one of the world’s 10 largest companies in the field of flavours and natural specialty fine ingredients, continues its momentum of acquisitions and the implementation of its rapid and profitable growth strategy by announced that it has signed an agreement for the purchase of 100 % of the shares of the UK company Flavours and Essences (UK) Ltd. (“F&E”) for approximately US$ 19.5 million (£ 15 million) and a mechanism for future consideration based on F&E’s future business performance over the period of three years from the purchase date. The transaction was completed upon signing and financed through bank debt.

According to F&E management reports, its sales turnover for the 12 months ending in July 2017 totaled approx. US$ 17.4 million (approx. £ 13.7 million) and it registered an average annual rate of growth for the past five years of over 20 %.

F&E, which was founded in 1998, engages in the development, production and marketing of flavours and natural colours. F&E operates a production site and R&D center in Blackburn, England, employs 41 people, and has a broad customer base in Europe, particularly in the UK and Ireland. F&E’s activity is synergetic with Frutarom’s activity in the field of flavours, activity which has grown in recent years by rates considerably higher than the market rate of growth, as well as with Frutarom’s developing activity in the field of natural food colours.

F&E’s founding owners and managers will continue contributing from their rich experience towards continued rapid and profitable growth of the activity.
