Azelis to distribute green aroma extracts
Azelis has been appointed by Evonik to distribute green aroma extracts in the UK, Ireland, Italy and selected Central and Eastern European countries.
Evonik’s aroma extracts make use of a process known as Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE) which is carried out under gentle conditions. André Aguiar, Evonik account & marketing manager Europe, explains, “This environmentally friendly extraction technique helps to preserve the genuine flavour profile and reduces the loss of valuable flavour compounds from the original raw material”.
In addition to its greener credentials, extracts produced by SFE often have a longer shelf life than other aroma extracts or need less stabilisation due to the gentle treatment. Evonik’s aroma extracts are ideal building blocks for compounded flavours for food in general and beverages, dairy, confectionery and bakery in particular.
David Gray, international business director, Azelis Food & Health, adds, “ We are excited to be working together with Evonik offering this innovative range of top quality aroma extracts, that meet our customers and today’s consumers needs for unadulterated, clean, healthy and tasty foods. We will provide unrivalled sales support, offering help and advice on applications, legislation, marketing insights as well as a streamlined sampling service”.
Aguiar, agrees, “We believe that with Azelis in the assigned countries, we will have improved market coverage supported by a new sales organisation, offering customers sound commercial solutions combined with a high level of local technical support”.
Azelis is now able to offer Evonik’s quality aroma extracts in the UK and Ireland, Italy, Turkey, Finland, Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia Belarus, Croatia, Serbia and Russia.
The agreement complements already existing and successful agreements between the two companies across many industry disciplines in Europe and Asia. Both companies work together to deliver inventive solutions for customers and look forward to a continued, successful partnership.
