Baxters Food acquires Jensen’s

Baxters Food Group through its Australian branch Baxters Food Australia has acquired Jensen’s Choice Foods.

Baxters Food Australia produces marinated and chargrilled vegetables and pesto sauces under the Bamboleo and Argents Hill brands for the foodservice market, while in the retail sector it supplies chutneys and relishes under the Baxters brand.

Jensen’s broad range of pasta sauces, salsa dips, wet spices, passata, fruit spreads, mustards and simmer sauces are available in the retail sector only, including brands such as Jensen’s Organic, Aunty Kath’s Cookie Dough and private label brands for major grocery retailers. The company has recently been developing certified organic products to meet the rise in demand.

The acquisition is part of Baxters Food Group’s plans to expand the Australian arm of its business.
