California-based manufacturer Ventura Foods has announced it is acquiring fellow US foodservice supplier DYMA Brands for an undisclosed sum.

Ventura, which provides customised and branded products, including dressings, sauces, mayonnaises and oils, for restaurants and to retailers on a private-label basis, said the deal will provide greater choice for its customers and added production capability.

Atlanta, Georgia-based DYMA has a similar product portfolio, with brands including Chef’s Companion, Sweet Crystals and Single Serv providing bulk condiments, seasonings and dry blend mixes to the foodservice industry.

It has more than 500 employees and operates manufacturing facilities in Bremen, Georgia, Duluth, Georgia, Bondurant, Iowa and Visalia, California. All DYMA Brands employees and manufacturing locations were acquired as part of the transaction and DYMA will continue to operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ventura Foods.

Chris Furman, president and CEO of Ventura Foods, said in a statement: “DYMA Brands is an ideal fit for Ventura Foods and represents an exciting next chapter of strategic growth for our company.

“This purchase allows us to better support our customers with added production and distribution capabilities and an expanded product portfolio.”
