HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. — Eurogerm is strengthening its presence in North America with the creation of Eurogerm KB LLC, a merger of Eurogerm USA and KB Ingredients, a specialist in the manufacture, packaging and distribution of food ingredients.
With the merger, the Eurogerm group is acquiring strategic assets for its development in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean. The complementary assets and combined expertise between the two companies, specializing in bakery ingredients, will make it possible to support current and future North American customers with optimal efficiency and responsiveness.
Located in New Jersey, with direct access to the East Coast, KB Ingredients' production and packaging plant will increase Eurogerm's production and distribution capacities in North America. Eurogerm USA, for its part, will provide access to the group's various elements of expertise: CSR, R&D, global sourcing, training, regulatory compliance, sensory evaluation.
The creation of Eurogerm KB LLC offers customers and vendors in the North American market the opportunity to work with an innovative and agile partner while benefiting from the support of an international group. The pooling of resources and particularly the supply of raw materials will generate strong purchasing synergies, a major advantage during this period of inflation.
