Wauconda, Ill.-based Synergy Flavors, Inc. has acquired Janoušek, one of the world’s first suppliers of herbal extracts and natural flavoring and an expert in Italian flavor profiles. 
Janoušek, based in Trieste, Italy, has been serving customers in Italy and Eastern Europe for 135 years. This acquisition will allow Synergy Flavors to expand into these geographies and provide its expertise in areas such as nutrition and dairy to these markets. 
Steve Morgan, ceo of Synergy Flavors EMEA, called Janoušek a “growing, well-run business,” adding Synergy has no plans for major or immediate changes. 
“We’re thrilled to be welcoming the Janoušek business into our group as it brings new expertise and products into our natural flavor, essences and extracts portfolio and complements our long heritage in dairy processing in Ireland and vanilla extraction in the USA,” he said. “The Italian site has an excellent record for high quality manufacturing and offers room for growth with easy access to much of mainland Europe.”
Synergy Flavors, part of Carbery Group, has commercial, manufacturing and technical support facilities in Ireland, the U.K., the United States, Brazil and Thailand.
