Commodity and specialty food ingredients firm Batory Foods has acquired DMH Ingredients, a food and beverage ingredients distributor, expanding its portfolio of specialty ingredients.
Established in 1991, Libertyville, IL-based DMH Ingredients is a supplier of niche ingredients for the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries. Its offerings include high intensity and alternative sweeteners, soluble tea and coffee, dehydrated fruits and vegetables, and glycerine. The company also sells several specialty lines of tea powder and fruit powder.
“Throughout our longstanding relationship with DMH Ingredients, the company has proven many times over to be a reputable supplier of niche ingredients responsibly sourced from around the world,” said Vince Pinneri, President at Batory Foods. “For Batory, this strategic acquisition significantly expands our ingredients portfolio and creates more opportunities for us to better serve our valued customers.”
DMH is the exclusive North American distributor for Rooibos tea, a red tea from South Africa sold throughout national foodservice retailers. Batory Foods said its purchase of DMH will create new sales opportunities in a number of food and beverage niches.
“Over the past 20 years, DMH has worked diligently to develop a strong and prosperous partnership with Batory Foods,” said Tom Hatch, Principal/Vice President at DMH Ingredients, Inc. “Our years of successful collaboration and shared core values made Batory a natural choice to take on the high-quality product and service our customers have come to expect. We are looking forward to continued growth and success for our longtime customers, suppliers and dedicated employees as we strengthen our overall position in the marketplace with Batory.”
Tom Hatch and many other key members of DMH have accepted positions at Batory Foods, ensuring continuity and a smooth transition for DMH customers and vendors.
