PureCircle, a leading producer and innovator of great-tasting stevia sweeteners for the global beverage and food industries, and Brenntag Food and Nutrition, a global leader in ingredients distribution, announce a new partnership in which Brenntag Vietnam will become PureCircle’s new distributor of great-tasting stevia leaf ingredients in Vietnam.
Using its strong presence in the Vietnam market, Brenntag Food & Nutrition will now offer PureCircle’s stevia leaf ingredients to food and beverage companies, enabling them to use naturally-sourced, plant-based solutions to reduce sugar and artificial sweeteners in their products.
“For our dedicated Food & Nutrition team in Vietnam this partnership is an excellent opportunity to distribute high-quality stevia to our business partners. By taking this step, PureCircle and Brenntag Food & Nutrition meets the increasing demand for stevia in this growing market and complement one another with their service offering. We can prove that we are engrained in the local culture and can make use of our local network,” states Margaret Chua, Vice President Brenntag Food & Nutrition Asia Pacific.
PureCircle’s next-generation stevia sweeteners offer a clean, sugar-like taste and are made from the stevia leaf. Through its innovative R&D on stevia, PureCircle vastly increased its capacity to supply non-GMO certified, next-generation stevia leaf ingredients, like Reb M, at cost-effective prices.
“We are delighted to join forces with Brenntag Food & Nutrition to assist us in providing food and beverage companies with the highest quality stevia ingredients. Brenntag Food & Nutrition has a great reputation as an industry leader in ingredient distribution. Our new business alliance combines the strong capabilities of both partners to distribute our great-tasting stevia leaf ingredients in Vietnam. We can now offer customers high purity plant-based ingredients which appeal to consumers seeking to improve their health and wellness,” states Navneet Singh, Vice President and Head Asia Pacific Region at PureCircle.
