Food and ingredients distributor Batory Foods purchased Savannah, GA-based Sweetener Solutions, a provider of custom sweetener formulation, blending, and specialty portion packaging, a company release announced Tuesday. The deal complements Batory’s existing position as a national distributor of natural, alternative sweeteners and sweetener blends, and the recent launch of its own sweeteners line, Batory Sweet Essentials.

“With specialized, technical expertise in non-nutritive high intensity sweeteners, Sweetener Solutions has proven itself to be a true leader in its field,” said Vince Pinneri, president of Batory Foods, in a statement. “We are pleased to complete this acquisition, which will further expand our capabilities and ingredients portfolio to provide sugar reduction and replacement solutions to the market. We look forward to welcoming many of Sweetener Solutions’ expert associates to our team, combining our collective strengths and creating new opportunities together.”

A Sweetener Solutions facility in Savannah is included in the transaction. Batory Foods plans to expand on Sweetener Solutions’ proprietary VeriSource service, a process which verifies that ingredients are absolutely accurate with respect to quality and concentration to meet the critical regulatory requirements for certain products.

“Becoming part of an organization like Batory Foods marks an exciting milestone for Sweetener Solutions,” Mike Lasky, CEO of Sweetener Solutions, said in the release. “This acquisition will allow us to leverage Batory’s vast network of longtime customers and business relationships to accelerate growth and advance our position in the marketplace, while continuing in our shared mission to deliver the highest quality ingredients and service to our customers.”

Lasky will remain CEO of Sweetener Solutions following the transaction closing, along with many other key members of Sweetener Solutions who have also accepted positions within Batory Foods to ensure a smooth transition for both parties.
