WILD on Path to Growth

February 23

WILD is expanding its facilities in Berlin and Valencia. These investments
contribute to job opportunities and employee retention as well as the future of
WILD as these locations are important stepping stones for further growth.

Late last year, WILD, a leading global manufacturer of natural ingredients for the food
and beverage industry, purchased land from the real-estate company,
Liegenschaftsfonds Berlin. The property totals approximately 6,500 m² and is located
on the Spree river, directly adjacent to the company grounds.

Thomas Eller, Managing Director of WILD, says, “We have successfully acquired the last free space near our company so we can continue to grow. The decision to make this purchase
signals a clear commitment to our location here in Germany’s capital city, and it
protects jobs.”
At first, the property will be used as an additional logistics staging
area. Ultimately, there are plans for it to be made into a production area.

The WILD Berlin portfolio includes liquid and powdered flavors such as citrus flavor
extracts and FTNF flavors. The product palette also features extracts of plants, herbs
and spices as well as a wide range of tea and color extracts and formulations. In the
WILD center for natural colors the color specialists test sources of raw materials and
develop new products. The experts also conduct numerous tests to evaluate the
stability of colorants in different applications.

WILD Valencia expanding

In December 2013, WILD Valencia acquired three plots of land bordering on the
company grounds, adding a total of 11,165 m² to the site. Francisco Climent,
Managing Director WILD Valencia, states, “Purchasing this strategically
advantageous commercial real estate is part of our overall concept to improve
material flow and help secure our location and jobs.”
WILD plans to use the additional space to facilitate truck access to the company
grounds and improve traffic flow in the loading zone. Furthermore, the parking lots for
employees and visitors are to be transferred off-site. This will allow for additional
areas to be used for things such as a warehouse.
The WILD Valencia portfolio contains special blends of fruit juice concentrates and
sweetening systems (Fruit Up®, natural fruit sweeteners, multijuice sweetening
systems), red colors obtained from fruits and vegetables, plant extracts and natural
citrus flavors.
