USA – Global ingredient supplier, Cambridge Commodities has acquired the ingredient business of US organic food company, Ultimate Superfoods, in a deal that marks Cambridges’ second acquisition in the US organic ingredient category.
Following the acquisition, Ultimate Superfoods’ raw and organic superfood ingredient business will merge with the US arm of Cambridge Commodities operating under the Cambridge Commodities Group.
The deal will provide Ultimate Superfoods with access to Cambridge Commodities’ approved supplier base of quality ingredients, its new product development expertise and its technical teams.
Cambridge expects the transaction to provide a platform for Ultimate Superfoods to expand its stock holding from raw and organic superfoods to include vegan and dairy proteins, natural extracts, and fruit and vegetable powders.
Commenting on the acquisition Neil Hammill, Commercial Director of the Cambridge Commodities Group said: “We are delighted to welcome the talented team at Ultimate Superfoods into the Cambridge Commodities family as this venture grows our business operations in the States.
“The addition of Ultimate Superfoods will enhance CC’s superfood offering and support our mission of providing customers with quality nutritional ingredients and healthier innovation to improve well-being in the US and the rest of the world.”
Director of Sales at Ultimate Superfoods David Cody Evans added: “As part of our continuous journey to find the best superfoods, we are incredibly excited to join the CC family.
“Together we’ll be able to increase our warehousing capability and have access to a global team of knowledge and ingredients to expand our offering to our customers.”
With their successful acquisition of Earth Circle Ingredients in July 2018, Cambridge Commodities believes that its foothold in the U.S. is only on the rise as the company continues to invest into its global operations.
The Cambridge Commodities US head office is located in Northern California, also home to their 6,000 pallet warehousing facility.
