Katadyn North America Inc. (a US subsidiary of Katadyn Group) announced today that it has acquired the assets of TyRy, Inc. TyRy is a privately held producer of freeze-dried and dehydrated instant meals under the brands Natural High, Richmoor, AlpineAire Foods and Gourmet Reserves. In addition to their extensive product line, they also specialize in co-packing services for all dry food goods.  

“Katadyn holds a strong leadership position in the water filtration category. The acquisition of TyRy’s brands builds upon that position and establishes us as a leading provider in water filtration, camp stoves and dehydrated and freeze-dried food,” said Shawn Hostetter, President of Katadyn North America. “Katadyn already owns the leading brand of dehydrated food in Europe (Trek‘n Eat). We are proud to announce that the Katadyn Group will now offer dehydrated food in the USA. Katadyn has everything outdoor enthusiasts require for their camp kitchen.” 

“Having the TyRy brands join the Katadyn team will provide us with a broader value proposition. This is a highly complementary combination that will benefit our customers, retailers and our employees. We are excited about the opportunity to bring these brands together” said Chris Voxland, VP of Operations for Katadyn North America. 

The food business will now operate under the name Katadyn North America Foods, LLC. The combined organization will continue to operate out of both facilities in Minneapolis and Sacramento. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
