ADM has announced that it has completed the acquisition of vanilla product supplier Rodelle Inc.
“Rodelle is a well-known and well-respected brand, with a great reputation for high-quality vanilla and other products. We’re particularly excited about its unique supply chain, which allows us to bring to our customers a range of certified organic and natural vanilla products unmatched in the industry,” said Scott Olstad, president of ADM’s North American Wild Flavors business.
Founded in 1936 and based in Fort Collins, Colorado, Rodelle is a provider of premium vanilla products, including organic and traditional extracts, beans, alcohol-free flavors and pastes. The company also owns a stake in the Federation Sahanala Vanille, a joint venture with over 2,100 registered vanilla farmers in Madagascar. Additionally, Rodelle has a partner with Gourmet Garden, a provider of vanilla in Uganda.
“This is an exciting time for ADM, as we continue to dramatically expand our human and animal nutrition capabilities,” said Vince Macciocchi, ADM senior vice president and president, Nutrition. “Our goal is to be the world’s leading nutrition company, and we’re taking aggressive action to get there. Just last week, we completed our acquisition of leading probiotics provider Protexin. Today, we’re welcoming the great Rodelle team to ADM. And we’re tremendously excited as we continue to move toward a fourth-quarter completion of our Neovia acquisition, a transformative addition that will make us a global leader in animal nutrition. We’re expanding our capabilities, our customer services and outreach, and our geographic reach as we continue to build the world’s leading integrated human and animal nutrition business.”
