Cambrooke Therapeutics, Inc., said it has been acquired by Ajinomoto Co. Inc., a procducer of amino acids, pharmaceuticals, high-quality seasonings, processed foods, beverages, and specialty chemicals, through its subsidiary Ajinomoto North America, Inc.
Prior to the acquisition, Cambrooke was a privately-held business led by investors Galen Partners and Seventure Partners.
Cambrooke’s product portfolio serves the needs of people with chronic health conditions reliant on medical foods and specialized functional foods as a central part of their daily nutritional needs. With this acquisition, Cambrooke gains access to Ajinomoto’s global nutrition and ingredient sciences expertise, as well as proven flavor and texture-enhancing R&D capabilities.
For many decades Ajinomoto has contributed to global health and wellness through wide-ranging specialty applications of amino acid technologies. Today, the company is becoming increasingly involved in creating solutions for specialty nutrition, improved food resources and global sustainability. Ajinomoto’s acquisition of Cambrooke supports Cambrooke’s focus on specialty nutrition and enables a pathway for Cambrooke’s use of Ajinomoto’s core technologies on metabolic and ketogenic therapy products, as well as accelerated development of better nutritional solutions for more chronic conditions.
