Sensient Technologies Acquires Mazza Innovation

Sensient Technologies (NYSE: SXT), today announced that it has acquired
Vancouver based Mazza Innovation Limited, a global leader in botanical
extraction technology, for an undisclosed amount.

The addition of Mazza Innovation is a major step in the evolution of
Sensient’s ‘seed to shelf’ strategy to innovate across the value chain
for natural and organic ingredients. Mazza’s leading edge plant
extraction technology better enables Sensient to meet customer demand
for pure ingredients in their food and beverage, nutraceutical, and
personal care products.

Paul Manning, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of
Sensient Technologies commented, “This acquisition is extremely
significant for Sensient and our customers. The combination of our color
and flavor expertise and Mazza’s revolutionary technology will allow us
to conduct extraction from natural plant sources using environmentally
friendly extraction methods – including water only extractions – instead
of traditional chemical solvents. This technology will enable us to work
with leading food, cosmetics, and nutraceutical brands to create cost
effective, clean label products that deliver on consumer expectations
for taste, color, and functionality.”
