Azelis extends partnership in Corbion into Indonesian F&H market

Azelis has announced an extension of its distribution agreement with Corbion. Starting this Nov 15, Azelis will distribute Corbion’s portfolio for the markets of confectionery, processed meat, savoury, and sauces and dressings. This partnership is built upon a collaboration between the two companies in Asia-Pacific.

Laurent Nataf, CEO and president of Azelis Asia-Pacific, commented: “We strive to bring the latest and best performing ingredient solutions to our 11 markets throughout Asia-Pacific, while expanding the market reach for our principals. Thanks to our long-term collaboration with Corbion in the region, we can leverage and transfer our expertise and formulations know-how.”

Corbion’s product range in food and health includes biobased clean label ingredients such as natural preservatives and nutritional solutions, emulsifying systems and lactic acid specialties for confectionery, beverages, baked goods, sauces, dressings, condiments, meat and fish, and prepared foods. The company’s product range will complement Azelis’ portfolio, offering new ingredient synergies and solutions to the food and health customers in Indonesia.

Antonius Prihantono, managing director for Azelis Indonesia, added: “Corbion’s product range is a strong asset for Azelis as it reinforces our innovative offering to customers and enhances our ingredient portfolio synergy. Furthermore, Corbion offers solutions in line with the latest market trends of label-conscious, healthier lifestyle and safety focus. We see great potential for this range in the Indonesian market, and an opportunity to strengthen our customer intimacy.”

In 2017, Azelis opened an office as well as a Food and Health application laboratory in Indonesia to deliver an optimum service to its customers. Last year, the company further acquired Primaditha, an Indonesian local specialty food ingredient distributor, to reinforce its position in the market, demonstrating its dedication to grow both organically with its partners and through selected acquisitions.
