Riverside makes add-on acquisition to ​​​​​​​FlavorSum Platform​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

The Riverside Company, a private investor focused on the smaller end of the middle market, has invested in Meridian Flavors Inc (Meridian), a manufacturer of sweet flavours for bakery, cereal, beverage and other product categories.

The acquisition is an add-on to Riverside’s FlavorSum platform, which helps growing food and beverage companies go to market quickly and cost-effectively with innovative solutions for delivering great-tasting products that inspire loyalty among consumers.

The acquisition of Meridian furthers FlavorSum’s objective of becoming food and beverage companies’ number one choice for flavor development and production. Growth through acquisition remains a key focus for FlavorSum, and the platform will continue to leverage the expertise of Riverside’s Flavor & Specialty Ingredient Advisory Board as it pursues additional add-on acquisitions and other organic growth initiatives.
