The sellers will continue their management role in Clarys & Willich group, together with the management team of Food Ingredients Technologies, and will join the management team of the Turpaz group.

Turpaz chairperson and CEO Keren Cohen Khazon said, “This is an important, significant strategic acquisition based on the standing of Turpaz Industries as one of the largest flavors companies in Europe, and strengthens its presence and position as a leading global producer of savory flavors and advanced baking solutions. Clarys & Willich’s business is very synergetic with that of Turpaz, and will be integrated into the successful activity of Belgian company Food Ingredients Technologies, which Turpaz bought in October 2021, and with the activity of Turpaz Israel.”
