SWISSGUM, THE NEW MEMBER OF THE LASENOR FAMILY
This newcomer reinforces the Lasenor product portfolio and strengthens our knowledge in applications such as ice creams, dairy or sauces thanks to the new range of functional systems.
Swissgum was founded at the turn of the century in Switzerland to offer customers a tailor-made solution for their food applications, with stabilising systems. After years of a fruitful presence in the market, the acquisition agreement was signed on Tuesday, 20 December 2022.
With this strategic movement, Lasenor includes hydrocolloids, organic, vegan, and conventional binding and thickening agents that combine with our emulsifiers, enlarging our product portfolio to ensure a complete product response to our current and future customers.
Swissgum will keep its head office at Tägerwilen (Switzerland) and will maintain its company structure and team. The company will be part of the Lasenor Group, focusing, as done since its settlement, on setting up direct negotiation with the food manufacturer within the stabilising systems but benefiting from having Lasenor production and expertise as part of its core.
This investment gives evidence of the Lasenor group’s strategic move to expand its growth toward the product portfolio. The group is already present in more than 105 countries worldwide through 6 foreign subsidiaries.
