FlavorSum, a North American flavour producer, adds Meridian Flavors, a U.S.-based flavour manufacturer specializing in natural, non-GMO, and organic flavours to the FlavorSum platform. The acquisition is part of FlavorSum’s strategy to expand resources that support the needs of small, mid-sized and emerging food & beverage companies. Meridian has an extensive portfolio of sweet and dairy flavours for bakery and snacks.

Meridian Flavors is the fifth company joining FlavorSum following the 2020 mergers of National Flavors, GSB & Associates and Bonnie & Don Flavours, and the 2021 addition of Whittle & Mutch.

“Our commitment to providing solutions for our customers through organic growth, significant investments, and strategic acquisitions remains a top priority. With the onboarding of Meridian Flavors, we strengthen our ability to support our customers’ goals through talent, capabilities, and flavour offerings.” said Brian Briggs, FlavorSum CEO.

“We’re thrilled to be joining the FlavorSum platform,” said Richard Lane, president and owner at Meridian. “We’ll have more flavour and applications capabilities to offer customers. And the resources such as insights expertise and regulatory support will improve our ability to meet our customers’ current needs and expand relationships with new solutions and offerings.”
