The Latin American division of food ingredient supplier Brenntag Food & Nutrition announces a new agreement with Axiom Foods for the distribution of its plant-based protein line in Argentina, Peru, Chile, and Bolivia.
The agreement will extend both companies’ commitment to provide the food industry with plant-based alternatives to dairy and allergen-free vegetable proteins. These would be used for the production of foods, beverages and nutraceuticals, from cereal bars to dairy-free yoghurts. Raw materials used to make Axiom’s products include rice, peas, oats and sacha inchi.
“This Axiom line is an important addition to our product portfolio as it helps to meet and strengthen the growing demand for meat and dairy ingredients and alternatives. This agreement is also a breakthrough where our customers will benefit from the combination of Axiom’s plant-based proteins as well as our technical and sales teams,” commented Florencia Pisetta – Commercial Manager Food & Nutrition Southern Cone Latin America.
Brenntag Food & Nutrition is part of the Brenntag Group and has a presence in 77 countries and 30 application and development centres.
