Irwin Simon, Executive Chairman, stated, “We are excited to deliver our first full quarter as a public company. I’m proud of our team – they’ve been working diligently to build the necessary infrastructure to support our rapidly growing enterprise and the evidence of this work is the speed by which we were able to close the Swerve acquisition. We are poised for a strong year ahead, supported by our internal organic growth initiatives which are complemented by Swerve, a high-quality asset that is highly synergistic with our ‘free-from…’ strategy.”
Albert Manzone, Chief Executive Officer of Whole Earth Brands, commented, “Our Branded CPG segment performance was highlighted by strong market share gains within our natural products business. All of our top seven markets grew share of natural in the year-to-date period, underscoring the powerful healthy-living macro trends that are supporting our brands. Additionally, our Flavors & Ingredients segment experienced a very strong quarter driven by the resiliency of our diverse end-markets. Looking ahead to the fourth quarter, we are anticipating a strong finish to 2020, marked by a nice sequential lift in revenue within our Branded CPG segment, which is indicative of the distribution gains that we’ve been planning for ahead of the holiday season.”
