Rogers Brothers acquired Puccinelli Packing Co., a producer with a 30-year history of dehydrating onion, garlic, and vegetables in Turlock, CA and Livingston, CA.
Rogers Brothers was acquired by Universal Foods. Universal Foods then acquired Chili Products, a California-based dehydrator of capsicums. This brought Chili Products and Rogers Foods together to provide customers with a single-source supplier.
Universal Foods, the parent company of Rogers Foods, re-branded as Sensient Technologies Corporation to reflect the corporate vision for dynamic innovation.
Rogers Foods became Sensient Dehydrated Flavors.
Sensient Dehydrated Flavors began to expand operations into China and established a processing facility in Qingdao, Shandong.
Culinary Center opened in the Turlock campus.
Sensient Dehydrated Flavors became Sensient Natural Ingredients.
Sensient Natural Ingredients was certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization.
Sensient Natural Ingredients received USDA’s National Organic Program certification; the company’s California-grown garlic, onion, and parsley product lines received Non-GMO Project verification.
