Colouring foods are produced from fruits, vegetables, and edible plants without the use of selective extraction and have no E-number requirement in the European Union. Naturally sourced ingredients are increasingly essential in the global food and beverage industry, as the health and wellness trend continues. Colouring foods enable food manufacturers to colour their products with natural food, helping them set their product innovations apart and build competitive advantage in a crowded market. A sourcing agreement will align SVZ’s expertise in agronomy, fruit & vegetable cultivation, and juice processing with DDW’s colour proficiency, applications competence, and sales channels.
This event pioneers the conversation on issues relating to food waste, from legislation to packaging and household trends. It will also equip delegates with the strategies and techniques for measuring, monitoring and analysing supply chain to identify areas of food wastage.

Commenting on the acquisition of the portfolio, Ted Nixon, chairman and CEO of DDW Inc, said, “The addition builds on DDW’s global supply capability and broadens the range of both simple and custom colour solutions for customers.”
The acquisition complements DDW’s recently opened natural colour manufacturing site in Cork, Ireland.
“Opening a natural colour manufacturing site in Ireland back in April also speaks to continued momentum as we celebrate our company’s 150-year anniversary,” said Nixon.
The Cork facility is focused on the manufacturing of water and oil soluble natural colours.
