AromataGroup has acquired Nactis Flavours S.A.

AromataGroup manufactures and distributes flavors, aromatic extracts and colorings for the food & beverage industry. The group has five production plants in Italy serving over 1,500 customers across Europe. The product portfolio of natural flavors and colorings meets the growing demand for natural raw materials in the food industry. Backed by Ambienta SGR, AromataGroup started a buy-and-buld project to become the main European player in natural, healthy and tasty food ingredients.

Nactis Flavours is a French leading company in the flavors and ingredients industry. The company has five production sites in France and Belgium and more than 250 employees.

Oaklins’ food & beverage team in Italy acted as buy-side advisor to AromataGroup and Ambienta SGR in this transaction.

“The completion of the Nactis deal took years, from beginning to completion, for many reasons that were mostly out of our control. Oaklins’ team in Italy accompanied us in this process – from the initial contact to closing – with professionalism, patience and many proactive proposals. Without their cooperation, the deal would never have happened.”
