Döhler has acquired Poland-based flavours specialist Aromes Group in an effort to pave further growth in the Eastern European food market.

The companies did not disclose financial details of the deal, which is a 100% takeover of the Polish company, including its core flavours business, and the company also provides beverage bases, emulsions, colours and compounds. The deal includes Aromes’ main production site in Grodzisk Mazowiecki near Warsaw, as well as its two sales locations in Ukraine and the Baltics.

Döhler said the acquisition would allow it to take advantage of Aromes’ expertise in understanding local taste preferences.

“Aromes has many years of experience in the production of premium flavours and extracts and in the application of baked goods, confectionery and beverages, as well as detailed knowledge of the Eastern European market and its consumers,”​ Döhler said in a statement.

“This has allowed Aromes to develop a product portfolio that is tailored especially to local taste preferences. In addition to premium extracts and flavours for beverages, including many flavour specialities in regionally significant flavours, Aromes also offers a wide-ranging flavour portfolio for the baked goods and confectionery industry.”

The company is already present in Eastern Europe, with sales offices throughout the region. It also acquired Jahncke in 2007, with production sites in Poland and Ukraine, to secure supply of raw materials in the region.

“By acquiring Aromes, Döhler is paving the way for further growth in the Eastern European flavours market and the expansion of business activities in the food segment,”​ the company said.
