Indian firm TATA Chemicals Ltd. recently formed a agreement Univar Inc. to distribute its fermented, digestive health ingredients throughout Canada to food and nutraceutical manufacturers, Univar announced in a release Monday.
“This collaboration with TATA, in the high-growth areas of digestive health and functional ingredients for the food and nutraceutical industries, will help our customers address the probiotic megatrend we’re seeing in health, wellness, and nutrition,” Univar Canada’s vice president of focused industries, Adam Iasenzaniro, said in a statement.
Univar will exclusively distribute products from TATA Chemical’s Nutritional Solutions division, TATA HQ, including the Fossence and Gossence brands of probiotic dietary fiber ingredients. TATA produces the fibers at its manufacturing plant in India using proprietary fermentation technology.
“The combination of TATA’s in-house bio-fermentation process and strong manufacturing excellence, along with Univar’s technical expertise and market reach, will provide customers with new opportunities to use these ingredients to develop innovative new products,” said Dawn Guay, director of strategic product development at Univar Canada, in the release.
Officials with TATA Chemicals said the move marks the entry of its Nutritional Solutions products into the North American market. In addition to providing ingredients to Canadian customers, the Indian firm said it also will help food and nutraceutical companies with new formulations.
TATA Chemicals Ltd. is a part of the TATA Group.
