Milwaukee — Botanical extraction technology company Mazza Innovation Ltd. has been purchased by Sensient Technologies Corp., a move which the acquiring firm reports is a major step in the development of its “seed to shelf” strategy for natural and organic ingredients.

Vancouver-based Mazza’s cutting-edge plant extraction technology will better enable Sensient to meet growing demand for “pure ingredients” from food and beverage manufacturers, according to the supplier.

“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.”
