Louisville, Kentucky USA (24 November 2015) – DDW, The Colour House, recently acquired the KleurCraft™ portfolio of colouring foods, custom formulations and related technology from SVZ International B.V. The accord enables DDW – a global manufacturer of natural colours, caramel colours and burnt sugars – to expand in the thriving ingredient segment of colouring foods. The acquisition strengthens DDW’s solutions across multiple hues for customers.
Colouring foods are produced from fruits, vegetables, and edible plants without the use of selective extraction and have no E-number requirement in the European Union. A sourcing agreement will align SVZ’s expertise in agronomy, fruit & vegetable cultivation, and juice processing with DDW’s colour proficiency, applications competence, and sales channels.
“The addition builds on DDW’s global supply capability and broadens the range of both simple and custom color solutions for customers,” said Ted Nixon, chairman and CEO of DDW Inc.
“Opening a natural colour manufacturing site in Ireland back in April also speaks to continued momentum as we celebrate our company’s 150-year anniversary,” he added.
