CINCINNATI — PCI Co., St. Louis, has acquired the St. Louis-based food ingredient business and manufacturing facility of Givaudan Flavours Corp. The amount of the transaction was not disclosed. PCI owns Diehl Food Ingredients, Sensory Effects and Emulsion Technology, Inc.

The St. Louis facility produces flavor bases and variegates used by dairies to make ice cream, novelty products and cocoa powder. Givaudan took possession of the St. Louis operation, formerly Consolidated Flavours, when it acquired Tastemaker in 1997.

"The sale of this facility and business is consistent with our strategy to focus on the higher growth core flavor and snack seasoning businesses where value-added Givaudan technologies and solutions enable our customers to market the best tasting products and brands in the world," said Dan McCafferty, President, North America, for Givaudan Flavours.
