PALM BEACH GARDENS, FLA. — Sweet Additions Ingredients Processors, L.L.C. has completed the acquisition of the assets of Primera Foods’ maltodextrin and syrup solids business. Primera, based in Cameron, Wis., produces and markets natural and organic maltodextrins and syrup solids derived from rice, oat and tapioca under the RiceTrin and Tapi labels. The company has a 50,000-square-foot facility in Cameron.

Sweet Additions, based in Palm Beach Gardens, provides natural and organic sweeteners to the food and beverage industry.

“This acquisition will not only allow us to instantly expand our ingredient offering to include grain-based natural, organic and G.M.O.-free starch derivatives, but gives us a tremendous platform for further growth into value-added grain-based sweeteners,” said Ken Valdivia, president and chief executive officer of Sweet Additions.
