Glanbia Nutritionals, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Glanbia plc, has agreed to acquire Foodarom, a Canadian-based custom flavour designer and manufacturer servicing the food, beverage and nutritional product industries with turn-key flavours and formulation support. Foodarom comprises a flavour library of over 15,000 recipes and produces both liquid and powder products for various applications.

Foodarom was founded in 2006 as a private company by Pierre Miclette (CEO) and John Murphy (COO) and two shareholder investors. It is headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, with additional production facilities in Salt Lake City and Bremen, Germany and with culinary laboratories in San Diego and Milan, Italy. The business employs 130 people.

The knowledge and experience of the combined R&D teams will further strengthen Glanbia’s growing position in flavours, and further enhance Glanbia’s ability to provide optimised ingredient systems to its customers.

“We recently shared our ambition to scale the flavours area of our business and are we are very pleased to announce this acquisition of Foodarom,” said Brian Phelan, CEO of Glanbia Nutritionals. “We are excited to welcome their 130–strong team to Glanbia with their exceptional reputation and commitment to flavour excellence.
