Innoval Döhler, based in Mexico City, will become a 100% Döhler subsidiary in January 2014 and thus will be fully integrated into the globally active Döhler group. Headquartered in Darmstadt, Germany, Döhler is a leading manufacturer of technology-based natural ingredients, ingredient systems and integrated solutions for the food and beverage industry. The Mexican ingredient specialist Innovación Alimentaria was founded in 1992 by Gustavo León. Döhler acquired close to 40% of the company back in 2006. Managed jointly by Innovación Alimentaria's founder and Döhler, the company has since developed into Döhler's most important hub in Central America under its new name, Innoval Döhler. Doehler Mexico S.A. de C.V., as the 100% Döhler subsidiary will now be called, will also be increasingly active in the United States and Canada markets. An additional expertise of Doehler Mexico is the development of tailored sweetening systems and innovative lowcalorie food and beverage applications.
By acquiring all the shares in Innoval Döhler, Döhler has taken crucial steps towards further expansion in North and Central America. With Juan Maldonado - previously Commercial Director at Grupo Altex - an industry expert has been won to lead the company as General Manager. Gustavo León and Ricardo León, son of the founder of Innovación Alimentaria and the company's managing director until now, will remain with the company. Döhler's goal is to offer these markets an integrated approach for the food and beverage industry. In addition to a broad portfolio of natural ingredients and ingredient systems, this approach also includes the development of innovative food and beverage product applications for the region.
