Caldic B.V. has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Cooperative Purchasers, a leading distributor of quality food ingredients serving the food and nutraceutical industries in the United States. The agreement underlines Caldic’s ambition to become a leading food ingredient solution provider in North America.
In line with our strategy to become a leading North American distributor of food ingredients, this is the perfect next stepSteve Owen
President of Caldic North America
Cooperative Purchasers, a family business run by brothers and co-owners Sid and Richard Marantz, has been engaged in the distribution of food ingredients since 1961 serving the California and U.S. West Coast markets. With a wide range of food ingredients manufactured by some of the most prominent companies in the industry, they have grown to become a multi-regional distributor with distribution centers located in the West, Midwest, Southwest and Southeast United States.
“We are very pleased with the acquisition of Cooperative Purchasers,” says Steve Owen, President of Caldic North America. “In line with our strategy to become a leading North American distributor of food ingredients, this is the perfect next step. Together with the Cooperative Purchasers’ team we will be able to bring many additional solutions to our customers and grow the market for our Principal suppliers.”
Cooperative Purchasers co-owner Richard Marantz states: “Our goal has always been to be the best source for the products we sell to our customers and a highly value added distributor to our vendors. With Cooperative Purchasers being acquired by Caldic, we believe that our ability to do this will be further enhanced.”
Caldic is a full-service distributor engaged in the production and distribution of solutions in Food, Industrial-, Health & Personal Care and Technical markets.
