According to Rob Bianchin, Vice President of Blendtek Ingredients, the partnership was created with customer-centricity to provide Canadian food manufacturers with an opportunity to partner with Blendtek’s highly customer-focused solutions.

Cargill which enjoys a trusted market leadership position will bring expansion opportunities to Blendtek from its top-tier ingredient portfolio and technical expertise as well as support Blendtek’s product development and ingredient solutions.

Concurrently, Blendtek will supply Cargill ingredients including starches and texturizing solutions, high stability oils and specialty fats, industry-leading sweeteners, sugar reduction solutions, sustainably sourced traditional and artisanal chocolate, cocoa, and more.

This agreement is not new for Blendtek as the company fulfills its mission of collaborating with industry partners to develop products fueled for success.

In July last year, Blendtek entered an agreement with Bunge, the world’s leader in oilseed processing and a leading producer and supplier of specialty plant-based oils and fats to supply plant alternatives in North America.

The agreement was not only converged to the distribution of Bunge’s protein alternatives, but Blendtek was also to provide product formulation expertise and blending capabilities to help customers quickly meet rising consumer demand.
