Sweet Additions LLC announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Sweet Additions Ingredient Processors LLC, has completed the acquisition of the assets of Primera Foods’ maltodextrin and syrup solids business. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Located in Cameron, Wis., Primera’s 50,000-square-foot facility is a producer and marketer of natural and organic maltodextrins and syrup solids derived from rice, oat and tapioca. These products are marketed under the RiceTrin™ and Tapi™ labels.
“This acquisition will not only allow us to instantly expand our ingredient offering to include grain-based natural, organic and GMO-free starch derivatives, but gives us a tremendous platform for further growth into value added grain-based sweeteners,” said Ken Valdivia, president and CEO of Sweet Additions, LLC.
