With effect from 1 April 2018, Azelis has been in a distribution partnership with CP Kelco to offer their carrageenan, pectin, gellan gum and xanthan gum products for the Food Segment in Indonesia.

This new partnership builds upon existing agreements between the two companies in Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific (APAC).

Richard Yin, vice president of Asia Pacific CP Kelco, stated: “Our partnership with Azelis has been very successful in other regions and, paired with their knowledge and expertise of the Food Segment, we are confident that this will be a good next step in that partnership.”

Laurent Nataf, chief executive officer and president, Azelis, Asia Pacific added: “We are thrilled with the continues expansion of our strategic partnership with CP Kelco.”

Azelis’ strategy is to create value with its strategic partners through mutual growth across different geographies. The group offers food manufacturers ingredients, auxiliary materials and diverse additives, while answering market requirements and consumer trends.

Having grown in APAC during the last five years, it has established presence in 10 countries with 18 offices and 16 laboratories. In November 2017, the company fully acquired Chemcolour—a leading distributor of speciality chemicals and food ingredients in Australia and New Zealand. The move had enlarged Azelis’s footprint in these two countries.
