Corbion, a leading global ingredient solutions provider, and Kingswood Capital Management, LP (“Kingswood”), a middle-market private equity firm with significant experience in corporate carve-outs have completed the earlier announced sale of Corbion's emulsifiers business.

We are delighted to partner with Corbion to create the largest standalone pure-play emulsifiers business in North America." said Alex Wolf, Managing Partner at Kingswood.

"We are confident that the emulsifier business will be in good hands under Kingswood’s stewardship and will receive strong support from their new owners. I want to thank our colleagues who have worked hard to develop our emulsifier business for many years, and we wish them great success in the years ahead,” said Olivier Rigaud, CEO Corbion.
