Oterra has announced the signing of a transactional agreement to acquire Diana Food’s natural food colouring business.
Following the completion of the transaction, Oterra will fully integrate Diana Food’s natural colouring business into its world class offering. Diana Food is currently owned by Symrise AG, a global supplier of fragrances, flavours, food, nutrition, and cosmetic ingredients.
