Custom ingredients manufacturer acquires packing company

Custom ingredients manufacturer Baldwin Richardson Foods has completed its acquisition of New Jersey-based Pennsauken Packing Co.

The move expands Baldwin Richardson Foods’ aseptic beverage manufacturing capabilities and accelerates its commercial strategy to be a full-portfolio liquid products supplier across the food and beverage industry, according to a news release.

The unified organization, including the Pennsauken facility, will operate as Baldwin Richardson Foods, according to the release.

“At Baldwin Richardson Foods, we’re committed to finding new ways to exceed our customers’ expectations,” Erin Tolefree, Baldwin Richardson Foods CEO and president, said in the release. “Expanding our aseptic beverage manufacturing platform allows us to grow with our customers, helping them keep pace with consumer demand in a thriving category experiencing significant growth.”

Aseptic manufacturing solutions make shelf-stable, preservative-free products while maintaining freshness, flavor, texture and nutritional value.

Pennsauken’s state-of-the-art manufacturing site includes aseptic processing lines (both high and low acid) capable of producing high-quality, high-demand beverages in sustainable packaging, according to the release. The Pennsauken facility is certified by both California Certified Organic Farmers and USDA Organic.

Under terms of the transaction, Baldwin Richardson Foods will retain Pennsauken’s customers, including consumer packaged goods brands.

Baldwin Richardson Foods provides the food and beverage industry with manufacturing solutions for sauces, syrups, toppings, and fillings as well as plant-based milk alternatives, fruit juices, flavored waters, concentrates and purees, teas, bar cocktail mixes, smoothies, coffee and creamers in a variety of bottle, carton and pouch sizes.
