Chr. Hansen Natural Colours expands portfolio with SENCA acquisition

Natural colour specialist, Chr. Hansen Natural Colours, is expanding its portfolio with the acquisition of SECNA Natural Ingredients Group.

This is the first add-on investment since being acquired by private equity firm EQT, and significantly strengthens Chr. Hansen Natural Colours position by giving it access to SECNA Groups’ strong pigment portfolio, which notably includes anthocyanins from black carrots and grape, and caramel.

“We’re committed to continuing to find new ways to harness and share the power of nature’s true colours,” said Odd Erik Hansen, CEO of Chr. Hansen Natural Colours.

“This is the first of many exciting milestones for us as a standalone company. We look to enhance our value proposition and strengthen our operational platform together with the team at SECNA at a time when demand for naturally sourced colours is increasing.”

SECNA Group CEO, Gabriel Muñoz, added: “It’s a win–win situation as Chr. Hansen Natural Colors will add our strong pigment offerings in anthocyanins and caramel to their collection, while providing our valued customers and suppliers with access to their portfolio, technologies and market reach, which is the most extensive in the industry.”

The SECNA group is a holding of several companies, with a presence in Spain, Italy and Turkey.
