S&B Herba Foods, a unit of Spanish food group Ebro Puleva, has acquired UK-based rice maker Vogan & Co.
Fulbourn, Cambridgeshire-based Vogan produces rice, lentils, peas and other products, which are sold for use in the manufacture of breakfast cereals, and dry and frozen foods.
S&B Herba Foods is a recently-created joint venture between Ebro Puleva and Texas-based Riviana Foods. The company is owned 51% by Ebro Puleva and 49% by Riviana.
The companies said the addition of Vogan’s operations enhances the milling capability of the joint venture, which has rice milling and rice flour production operations in Liverpool.
