The Puratos Group announced it has acquired Schobbers, a Venlo, The Netherlands-based supplier of seeds for the baking industry.

Here at Puratos, health and well-being is an important aspect of our sustainability strategy and, in turn, a cornerstone of our future growth. And so, we’re incredibly proud and excited to have purchased Schobbers, Europe's best in class edible seeds supplier.

The specialist provider for the global bakery, patisserie and chocolate market has expanded its wealth of health offerings with the acquisition of Netherlands seeds and grains expert Schobbers. Puratos said the addition of the Venlo-based producer reflects its commitment to driving health and wellbeing in the baking industry. “In our view, seeds and grains are one of the core drivers in bakery thanks to their healthy halo, and they’re a fundamental aspect of our health & wellbeing strategy, which this acquisition really enhances,” said Bernard Bonjean, business category manager, grains & seeds at Puratos.

“We’re very excited about how the synergies between Puratos and Schobbers will unlock further growth and value for our customers and – ultimately - consumers. Critically, with direct access to these important raw materials and better control over their supply chain, we’re also improving the sustainability credentials of these ingredients at Puratos.”

Following the acquisition – of which financial terms were not disclosed – the Dutch company will operate under the name Puratos Schobbers from its current base in Venlo.
