Azelis extends its partnership with BENEO for the Hungarian food & nutrition market

12 October 2023

Azelis, a leading innovation service provider in the specialty chemicals and food ingredients industry, is proud to announce its new distribution agreement with BENEO, a leading manufacturer of functional ingredients for the food, feed and pharmaceutical industry. Effective immediately, this mandate strengthens the successful partnership between Azelis and BENEO already ongoing in Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Serbia.

BENEO has long-term experience in developing and producing functional ingredients from natural sources with nutritional, health and technical benefits. This new mandate reinforces Azelis’ lateral value chain with a portfolio based on agronomic products, including raw materials such as chicory root, sugar beet, rice, faba bean and wheat. By providing plant-based functional ingredients, BENEO ensures the sustainability of its value chain, from farm to fork. The company treats nutrition, health and sustainability as three sides to the same coin. Its strong commitment to sustainability aligns with Azelis’ strategy to provide innovative and sustainable formulations to its customers.

BENEO’s expertise in functional ingredients from natural sources, together with Azelis’ solid technical skills and innovation capabilities, will pave the way toward building strong and trustworthy relationships with customers in Hungary.

Stefanie De Roover, Regional Sales Director EMEA at BENEO, comments:
“We are excited to continue developing our business relationship with Azelis, now ensuring that customers in Hungary will have access to our versatile ingredient portfolio offering nutritional and technical benefits. Our shared values with Azelis have proven successful collaboration over the years, and Azelis’ excellent product knowledge, technical support and flexibility are instrumental in driving our joint efforts to deliver high-quality solutions to the food industry.”

Jakub Matýs, Managing Director at Azelis Central Europe, adds:
“Extending our partnership with BENEO is a strategic step for us to provide a wider range of innovative and sustainable products to our customers. This mandate confirms our commitment to excellence and environmental responsibility, as BENEO’s team joins Azelis on our journey towards greater and cleaner formulations. We look forward to seeing how our expertise will prove as successful in Hungary as it is in the Central European countries our teams are already operating in.”
