The extracts supplier, which is based in Pine Brook, New Jersey, offers a range including hundreds of tea products, vanilla and botanical extracts.
Döhler North America general manager Patrick O´Keefe said Teawolf’s expertise in botanicals would complement Döhler’s portfolio of natural ingredients and ingredient systems for food and beverages.
“The acquisition is not only an important step for the Döhler Group to live further up our claim to deliver fully integrated natural food and beverage solutions,” he added. “It is also a milestone to grow our business in the USA.”
Teawolf said a focus on technology and innovation allowed it to deliver “the highest quality” natural and organic ingredients to customers, adding that the deal would enable it to widen its reach.
“Making use of Döhler Group’s supply chain network and distribution channels, we have the chance to distribute our unique product portfolio to customers of the food and beverage industry all around the globe,” said Teawolf founder Greg Robertson.
Teawolf said applications for its products include: beverages such as tea, coffee, cocoa and hibiscus; in baked goods through ingredients such as natural vanillas and cocoas; and for adding natural color and nutritional value to dairy products.
Teawolf, which will retain its name until it is fully integrated into Döhler North America, will be led by Robertson and O´Keefe.
Headquartered in Darmstadt, Germany, Döhler has 30 production sites, is active in around 130 countries and employs more than 5,000 staff.
