Brothers is a portfolio company of Benford Capital Partners (“Benford Capital” or “BCP”), a Chicago-based private equity firm founded in 2004 and focused on buying and building lower middle market companies in partnership with founders and management. Benford Capital invested in Brothers as a platform acquisition in December 2020 to pursue add-ons of B2B ingredient and healthy snacking companies.

The company was founded in 2000 by brothers Travis and Matthew Betters, whose family have been passionately involved in the processed fruit and vegetable industry for more than 70 years. Even though Matthew is no longer in the business, Travis has continued on to lead brothers as CEO for more than 22 years.

In 2020, Benford Capital recapitalized Brothers International. BCP and Brothers outlined a plan to continue investing in sales, marketing, and new product development to support growth, both in the ingredients and Brothers All Natural divisions.

In 2021, Brothers International acquired Dennick FruitSource. The combination has allowed these two leading B2B ingredients companies to significantly expand their diversified product portfolio to better serve their customer base as a global supplier.
