The transaction broadens DDW’s portfolio of natural color solutions for customers. DDW calls itself the largest manufacturer of annatto-based food colorings in North America. The financial terms of this transaction were not disclosed.

“This acquisition allows DDW to strengthen its existing offerings for customers around the world,” said Chairman and CEO Ted Nixon. “The larger toolkit will improve DDW’s ability to develop unique color solutions for applications, one customer at a time, and will extend our manufacturing expertise in Wisconsin.”

The Danisco colors product line consists primarily of various carotenoid colorings and blends in the yellow to orange spectrum. They are used by dairy processors as well as by those in the dessert, bakery/snack and beverage industries.

Equipment and inventory will be transferred from the DuPont plant in Madison, Wis., and manufacturing will be consolidated at DDW’s GFSI-certified operation in Port Washington, Wis.
