Robertet is pleased to announce that they have acquired Ecom Food Industries of Toronto, Canada. Ecom is a North American based leader and manufacturer of specialty natural flavors and extracts. Ecom is focused on providing all-natural products and value-added services to the food and beverage, health, nutraceutical and cosmetic industries.
“The Ecom client and product portfolio perfectly complements Robertet’s own and we look forward to combining the strengths of both organizations to better serve consumer needs. Our DNA is a product line consistent with all natural, botanically sourced ingredients and value added products to suit consumer needs. Ecom fits perfectly within this strategy and we look forward to welcoming Ecom into the Robertet family.” – Philippe Maubert, Chairman, Robertet Groupe.
“Ecom is excited to begin the next chapter of its history as a part of the Robertet Group and its more than 170-year history in this industry as one of its pillars. The complementary nature of this combination is evident in the family-owned and operated nature of our companies.” – David Soknacki, Founder, Ecom Food Industries.
