Enray’s truRoots brand offers on-trend product platform in the growing gluten-free market.

The J. M. Smucker Company has completed an acquisition of Enray Inc., Livermore, CA, a leading manufacturer and marketer of premium organic, gluten-free ancient grain products, including sprouted and non-sprouted grains, pasta and cookies, which are primarily sold under its flagship brand truRoots.

Enray generated net sales of more than $45 million over its latest 12-month period. The transaction includes a leased manufacturing facility in Livermore. Details of the transaction were not disclosed.
