Last updated on June 13th, 2024 at 05:11 pm

Hain Celestial Group of Lake Success, New York, an organic and natural products company with operations in North America, Europe and India, has acquired Orchard House Foods of the United Kingdom, a producer of prepared fruit, juices, fruit desserts and ingredients. Orchard House supplies leading retailers, on-the-go food outlets, foodservice providers and manufacturers in the U.K.

“We are excited about the acquisition of Orchard House, which expands our presence in the on-trend fresh category with prepared fruit, drinks and desserts. Orchard House provides us with the opportunity to expand fruit product offerings into continental Europe, as well as new product development with cold pressed juice and branded fruit product offerings in the United Kingdom. Additionally, we expect sales and operating efficiencies in terms of fruit procurement across our businesses around the world,” said Irwin Simon, founder, president and CEO of Hain Celestial. “Along with the acquisition comes innovative new processing technology to expand the shelf life of fresh fruit and juices. We also believe there may be opportunities to leverage Orchard House’s expertise into new branded product offerings in fruit, juice and bars under the Ella’s Kitchen, Hartley’s, Johnson’s Juice Co. and Sun-Ripe brands.”

The acquisition requires formal clearance from the Competition Market Authority in the U.K. Until formal clearance has been received, Hain Celestial and Orchard House will continue to operate independently.
