Solina, a European producer of savory ingredient solutions for the food industry, has acquired US based Saratoga Food Specialties to continue its expansion in North America. Solina established a presence in the US for the first time in 2021 with the acquisition of Asenzya, a Wisconsin-based provider of custom dry seasoning solutions for the food industry.

Acquiring Saratoga accelerates Solina’s footprint into North America, notably by adding liquid solutions to its existing dry seasoning capabilities, doubling its number of facilities in the region from three to six, and leading to the establishment of a dedicated Solina North American organization with significant expertise in B2B (industry), foodservice (QSR) and retail.

Solina is excited to welcome Saratoga’s leadership team and its 500 employees to the global Solina team of 2700 people. Michael Marks, former president of Saratoga Food Specialties, will lead the operations as president of Solina US, reporting to Mark Duffy, president of Solina North America.
