This partnership with Kalsec Inc. will provide customers in Colombia with access to a broader range of ingredient innovations focused on taste and sensory solutions, natural colors and coloring foodstuffs, and food protection.
Univar Solutions works closely with its customers and suppliers to create solutions that deliver innovative formulations, recipes, and ingredients to help brands of all sizes thrive.
Distributing Kalsec’s products will allow Univar Solutions to bring their customers a full line of natural and high-quality innovative ingredients that meet global challenges that food and beverage manufacturers face.
“We are excited to introduce Colombian customers to Kalsec’s complete line of naturally sourced extracts, colors, and antioxidants, providing them with the opportunity to use these ingredients to develop innovative food and beverage products for consumers,” says Kevin Hack, global vice president of food ingredients for Univar Solutions.
Moreover, both companies support the latest food trends such as clean-label, plant-based alternatives, and healthy ingredients, and are fully committed to sustainable practices and meeting environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals.
“We are thrilled to further expand our partnership with Kalsec as they mirror our high standards of sustainability, social responsibility, innovation, and community engagement,”’ says Jorge Buckup, president of Latin America for Univar Solutions.
Kalsec has been in Colombia for a decade now and now seeks this distribution agreement to expand its reach to its target customers.
“As we continually strive to enhance our support for customers in Latin America, we are pleased to be working with a market leader such as Univar Solutions,” says Aaron Wheadon, senior vice president of global business development for Kalsec.
Univar Solutions has established itself as a global leader in the distribution of chemicals and ingredients, and continues to expand its reach in Central and South America through partnerships and acquisitions; recent ones including the ChemSol acquisition this February and a partnership with Stahl in September 2022.
