Florida Food Products (FPP), a food and beverage ingredient solutions provider, has acquired Amelia Bay, a Georgia-based provider of fresh brewed tea extracts, coffee extracts and botanicals, for an undisclosed price.

Founded in 1989, Amelia Bay is claimed to be one of the top producers of industrial scale brewed tea, coffee, and botanicals.

Jason Crandall – Amelia Bay President said: “We are extremely excited to partner with a company that has the scale and capabilities of FFP. This acquisition gives Amelia Bay access to new technologies and ingredients that will pave the way to creating the next generation of all natural, clean label food and beverage ingredients.”

For Florida Food Products, which is controlled by MidOcean Partners, the acquisition is expected to bolster its position in the clean label ingredients space through the addition of a beverage platform to its portfolio of organic products within the meat, savory, health and wellness markets.

Jim Holdrieth – Florida Food Products CEO said: “I am thrilled to partner with the Crandall family who have built an outstanding clean label tea and beverage platform business.

“This acquisition supports our overall mission of becoming the industry’s leading provider of ingredients from nature that work. The combination of FFP’s natural fruit and vegetable ingredients with Amelia Bay’s coffee, tea, and botanical offering expands our ability to provide customers an innovative, great tasting, clean label beverage solution.”
