Christian Hansen appoints Barentz as a UK industry solutions partner
The Christian Hansen Natural Colours group has confirmed the appointment of Barentz as its UK strategic partner for its industry portfolio, which includes development of confectionery and bakery applications, writes, Neill Barston.
As previously reported, the business has made a number of notable breakthroughs across the ingredients and solutions sector, including recently unveiling a shade of natural blue designed for sweets (pictured), which had previously proved elusive for manufacturers to deliver.
“We are looking forward to giving our growing customer base in the United Kingdom and Ireland access to the market’s leading and innovative product portfolio’, said Mr. Gökhan Oran, Global Vice President Human Nutrition at Barentz.
‘Together with the team at Christian Hansen, our technical experts and application specialists, we are able to give our customers access to the full range of Chr. Hansen natural colours and support them with application & full-recipe know-how and tailormade solutions.”
The appointment is an extension of an exciting partnership between the two companies and gives Barentz’ customers in the United Kingdom and Ireland access to the largest and most vibrant colour portfolio in human nutrition, with applications for beverages, confectionery, dairy-based or other prepared foods. Covering natural colours and fruit and vegetable concentrates, the unique portfolio offers more than 600 products, including product ranges as FruitMax, CapColors and iColors.
Mr. Adam Dundas, Global Head of Customer, Sales & Distributor Excellence at Christian Hansen Natural Colours added: ‘With broad market knowledge and access to leading manufacturers, Barentz was the obvious choice to partner with in the UK & Ireland.’
