Azelis extends distribution agreement with Kerry for the Polish meat market

Azelis has extended its distribution agreement with Kerry. The agreement will see the former distributing the latter’s solutions for meat, ready meals and plant-based food processors on the Polish market.

The new mandate also marks an extension of the distribution agreements that the two companies have in Europe and the Americas, and further underlines Azelis’ global strategy to organically grow and build substantial partnerships with its key suppliers.

Renata Bugiel, regional managing director, Azelis Poland and Ukraine, commented: “This distribution agreement allows us to further expand our footprint in the meat sector in Poland, following our acquisition of Euroconsultant last year which enhanced our position in the smoke flavour market. Our team of sales people and lab experts in Poland is excited to present our expanded product portfolio to our meat, ready meals and plant-based food customers.”

As a long-term distribution partner of Kerry Group in Europe and the Americas, Azelis has demonstrated steady organic growth, stimulated by its formulation expertise. Azelis’ innovation capabilities as well as their extensive product knowledge and experience were vital for Kerry to choose Azelis for this specific new territory.

Michał Stachowiak, regional commercial director, Poland, Ukraine and Baltics, Kerry, concluded: “Kerry’s vast and innovative portfolio enables Azelis to further enhance its customer solutions while providing a combination of signature taste, texture, functionality, improved nutrition and clean label formulations. Working with Azelis helps us to extend our existing presence on the Polish market, and we are confident that Azelis’ reach and know-how is a very important asset for us in this regard.”
