August 6, 2009

Naturex and Natraceutical Group have announced a merger agreement regarding their ingredient activities, whereby Natraceutical’s ingredients division will be integrated into Naturex.

The merger will lead to the formation of an ingredients portfolio that includes nutraceutical ingredients, flavorings, preservatives, extracts, naturally derived colorings, fruit and vegetable powders, pectins, yeasts, and caffeine.

The resulting company, which will operate under Naturex management, will have production sites in Europe (France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and UK), United States, Morocco, Australia, and Brazil and sales offices in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.

The companies expect that the transaction will be complete by the end of the year.
