Ingredients specialist RAPS, based in Kulmbach/Germany, has acquired a majority stake in Biova. The move sees the supplier of spices and food ingredients focus on expansion of its range and expertise in organic spices. Biova, based in Wildberg near Stuttgart/Germany, will continue to operate as an independent subsidiary.
With high-quality and exotic natural salts, peppers, sugars, spices and chilies, the Biova brand has become well established since it was founded in 2003 and has steadily expanded its portfolio of organic products. RAPS’ acquisition of the majority share opens up new markets and sales channels for Biova, especially in other European countries. On the other hand, RAPS will benefit from the ingredient specialist’s comprehensive know-how and will be able to expand its organic portfolio with a variety of new and unusual spices, salts and creative blends.
