JDM Food Group merges with Henry Broch Foods to create international “flavour powerhouse” – Jardins and Broch

25th July 2023 Lincolnshire based JDM Food Group (JDM) is announcing a merger with US based Henry Broch Foods (HBF), creating a new parent company, Jardins and Broch.

Headquartered in Bicker, JDM is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of value-added vegetables, sauces, dips and purees to the retail, manufacturing, recipe box and foodservice markets, with a workforce of more than 350.

HBF, with headquarters in Waukegan, Illinois USA, is a prominent spice, dry-blending and co-packing company, specialising in tailored formulations and seasonings.

Aisling Kemp, CEO of JDM, said: “Whilst on a day-to-day basis it is business as usual, the merger will create a flavour powerhouse with global ambitions. It is very exciting news for everyone associated with JDM as it will create many new opportunities for team members across the organisation to advance their careers within a growth-oriented business.

“Working with the team at HBF who share our strong ethics, values and focus on sustainability is incredibly exciting. Trends in this market are ever changing and we are now better able to develop solutions for all channels with our culinary teams that deliver on flavour, health, and functionality to ensure we evolve alongside consumer demand.

“The partnership with HBF will enable us to build on our recent success and create long term sustainable growth as a true ingredients innovator.”

Jardins and Broch is backed by London-based Sunridge Partners (Sunridge), a private investment group committed to creating leaders in food, beverage, and agribusiness. Sunridge invested in JDM Foods in 2021.

Philipp Saumweber, Managing Partner of Sunridge, said: “Since partnering with JDM in 2021, we have invested considerably in building a world-class ingredients team, expanding our operations, and improving capabilities. We are very much looking forward to working with like-minded friends at HBF and jointly executing on group investment and growth plans to build a leading international ingredients and flavour formulation company.”

Jardins and Broch brings together two market leading ingredients companies creating a team of international flavour experts across both wet and dry products. The newly formed partnership is an industry leading player with significant production capacity, complementary R&D capabilities and outstanding worldwide supply chain networks.

The two companies will continue to operate independently in their home markets, backed by the expert knowledge and skills from the other party to grow a global presence.
