Nactarome acquires Calaf Nuances flavour house

Nactarome has acquired Calaf Nuances, a Spanish-based producer of flavours solutions with broad application expertise across F&B categories. The move marks the company’s fourth acquisition this year, as it continues to expand its product offering. The purchase was completed on 5 May 2023.

Nactarome is focused on providing a comprehensive portfolio of all-in-one natural flavourings, extracts and functional ingredients to the global F&B industry. The group has grown exponentially in the last five years, comprising 13 production sites and over 550 employees. It indicates that Calaf Nuances will provide “an interesting addition to its range of sweet and savoury flavours and blends for F&B.”

Calaf Nuances has many international customers across Spain, Europe and Mexico. The flavour house is recognized for its own-created flavours. Besides molecular flavour creation, it boasts in-house technologies, including biotransformation, maillard reactions, distillation, concentration and encapsulation to create differentiating flavours for many applications in the food industry.

Luigi Del Monaco, CEO at Nactarome, comments: “With this acquisition, we have expanded our presence in the Spanish and Latin America markets and gained access to new competencies and capabilities that will enable us to serve our customers even better. This move aligns with our long-term strategic plan to strengthen our position and create sustainable value for our stakeholders.”
