Creating the Ingredients for a stronger Future
The chief executive of Anglia Maltings Holdings (AMH) has announced the company has been acquired by Richardson International. Stuart Sands welcomes the fact that Anglia Maltings’ three businesses, Crisp Malt, EDME Food Ingredients, and Micronized Food Products have a new parent company.
“Richardson International, based in Canada, is a world leader in agriculture and food processing,” he says. “Its 19th century roots have many similarities with ours, with business built on strong relationships with growers; production of excellent ingredients; and great customer service.
“It is fantastic that this highly regarded, successful family company is keen to support and invest in our three businesses: the backing will take us on to a new level.”
“As champions of innovation, Richardson International will help us deliver on our ambitions for new ingredients, and open new doors for our businesses. This acquisition will also support us in our quest to keep offering best-in-class customer service to brewers, distillers, bakers, and food manufacturers.”
Richardson International processes and refines Canadian-grown oilseeds into quality oils and manufactures oil-based ingredients for the retail, food service, and industrial sectors. They are also actively involved in processing oats and durum into a variety of value-added food products. Recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, their operations span Canada, the U.S., and the UK.
“For quite some time, we have actively been seeking an opportunity to enter the malting industry in a significant way. We see malting as a natural extension of our food processing business,” says Curt Vossen, chief executive officer at Richardson International.
“This acquisition brings together two companies that share a common mission. We have great confidence in Anglia Maltings – and their management team – and believe we will find additional synergies and opportunities to grow the business.”
“We look forward to collaborating with them to ensure a continued supply of the quality food ingredients their customers have come to know and expect.”
