Naturex Acquires Berghausen’s Quillaia and Yucca Operations

Posted: June 11, 2014

Naturex has acquired the quillaia and yucca business activities from Berghausen (Cincinnati). The company said the move is a logical continuation for the group after its acquisition earlier this year of Chile Botanics, a Chilean company specialized in quillaia extracts.

The deal includes the transfer of a comprehensive line of quillaia and yucca extracts, formulated in liquid and power for the industry. Yucca Schidigera and Quillaja Saponaria are natural foaming agents widely used in carbonated beverages, syrups, frozen carbonated beverages, beer, juices and many other products requiring enhanced foaming characteristics.
