Ecom, a North American based manufacturer of specialty natural flavors and extracts, provides all-natural products and value-added services to the food and beverage, health, nutraceutical and cosmetic industries.

Philippe Maubert, chairman, Robertet Groupe, said, “The Ecom client and product portfolio perfectly complements Robertet’s own, and we look forward to combining the strengths of both organizations to better serve our clients and their consumers’ needs. Our DNA is a product line consistent with all-natural, botanically-sourced ingredients and value-added products to suit consumer needs. Ecom fits perfectly within this strategy and we look forward to welcoming Ecom into the Robertet family.”

David Soknacki, founder, Ecom Food Industries, said, “Ecom is excited to begin the next chapter of its history as a part of the Robertet Group and its more than 170-year history in this industry as one of its pillars. The complementary nature of this combination is evident in the family-owned and operated nature or our companies.”
