Nactarome expands clean label portfolio with Royal Buisman acquisition

Nactarome has acquired Royal Buisman, a producer of natural and clean label caramel ingredients with a broad application and functionality expertise across F&B categories. The move also creates a presence in the Netherlands for the company and increases its product offerings at a time when consumers are seeking trustworthy and cost-efficient ingredients.

Royal Buisman has a portfolio of dry powder and liquid caramel solutions, providing its customers with differentiating flavouring, colouring and texture solutions. Commenting on the acquisition, Luigi Del Monaco, CEO of Nactarome, says the purchase will increase Nacatarome’s caramel product offerings and access to a large customer base. “Opportunities for collaboration and cross-selling are extremely high, especially in the bakery, ice cream and hot beverages segments,” he notes.

Nactarome provides a comprehensive portfolio of all-in-one natural flavourings, extracts, colourings and functional ingredients to the global F&B industry. The group has grown exponentially in the last five years, comprising 12 production sites and over 550 employees.
