With the purchase, New jersey-based manufacturer MORRE-Tec adds more products and expertise in fortification ingredients such as vitamins A and D, among other things.

In a press release, President and CEO of MORRE-Tec​ Industries Leonard Glass announced that the company has acquired fortification ingredient company Vitacyclix​.

The acquisition brought an extensive new line-up of products to the Union, NJ-based MORRE-Tec. “Vitacyclix, a Yonkers, New York company [is] known for its quality vitamins, nutrients and bioflavonoids for fortification in food, dairy, beverage and nutritional products,” ​the press release said.

According to the release, Glass cited Vitacyclix as the “dairy fortification pioneer that actually developed and launched the original vitamin A and D concentrates more than 55 years ago under their flagship brand, Freeman Dairy vitamins A&D.”

Timing it right

MORRE-Tec’s leadership explained why the acquisition was a timely and relevant decision. “Experts believe that more than one billion individuals are vitamin D deficient, which is significant because of the well-established negative effects of this deficiency,” ​said Michael Glass, MORRE-TEC’s director of sales and marketing.

Vice President of Administration and Special Projects William Ludlum added that MORRE-Tec’s customers will recognize the acquisition as strategic growth into new areas of functional ingredients.

“This will lead to more opportunities for our products and services to support their needs​,” Ludlum said. “By expanding our core product line with new functional ingredients and technologies, MORRE-Tec is in prime position to support manufacturers with the fortification ingredients that address their long-term needs.”
