Orchard Valley Foods Group (OVFG) has acquired a majority share in The Ingredients Co, Australia to create Orchard Valley Foods Australia Ltd, (OVFA), as part of the company’s continued expansion into the Australian foodservice and bakery markets.
Orchard Valley has been working alongside Ingredients Co, who distribute chocolate, confections, decorations and inclusions into the foodservice and wholesale markets, since 2016. The company has an exclusive agreement to distribute Orchard Valley’s product ranges in Australia and New Zealand.
Director of the new Orchard Valley Foods Australia Kelly Blumberg said:
“We are very pleased to be able to extend and formalise our business activities into Australia and New Zealand, a growing market for our confections portfolio. This is a fantastic opportunity for both businesses, expanding and increasing OVFs market presence in Australia and creates new opportunities for us in this market. In addition, the newly formed Orchard Valley Foods Australia now has access to our large portfolio of products to help them thrive within their market”.
