Pharmachem Laboratories, Inc., Kearny, NJ, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Improve USA, has acquired the aloe vera business including the ALOE CON product line, from Florida Food Products, according to Peter Hafermann, president of Improve USA. “Pharmachem will continue to sell the ALOE CON product line to current and future customers and distributors through Improve USA,” said Mr. Hafermann.
 
 “This purchase strategically complements our existing aloe vera raw material supply business at Improve,” added Mr. Hafermann. “The synergies resulting from the combination of two outstanding aloe suppliers, together with Pharmachem’s expertise, and our contract manufacturing capabilities through the Alix Technologies Inc.
