France-based Roquette, a manufacturer of plant-based ingredients, has completed the acquisition of Brazil-based Itacel, a provider of pharmaceutical excipients.

This acquisition is a move by the plant-based ingredients company to position itself as a major supplier to the pharmaceutical industry, focussing on natural-based pharmaceutical excipients solutions.

The plant-based ingredients company’s products and solutions are catered to the nutrition, food and pharmaceutical markets, with products made from plant-based raw materials such as corn, wheat, potatoes and peas.
