Brussels, Belgium – September 20, 2011 – Univar Inc., a leading global chemical distributor, announced today it will be showcasing its comprehensive range of natural and synthetic colours at Food Ingredients Asia this year. Univar will be demonstrating these products at the event in Bangkok, Thailand, on 21-23 September at stand P35, which it is sharing with local distributor, Maxway.
Univar will be presenting its Edicol range of colours as well as a variety of innovative colours derived from natural sources including spiulina, plant and fruit extracts. Visitors to the stand will see how these colours can be used in ice creams, cake icing and frosting.
With its bespoke colour-matching service, Univar is able to manufacture virtually any food-grade colour in any format customers require. Dedicated technical staff ensure that colours will also blend perfectly with other ingredients and will not change during the production process.
Thai distributor, Maxway, partners with Univar in Thailand, distributing the company’s colours as well as food, pharmaceutical and personal care ingredients. It is one of several local agents and distributors Univar works with to ensure its products are widely available throughout Asia.
“Consumers are becoming more sophisticated all the time and manufacturers are increasingly on the lookout for high-performance exotic ingredients and vivid colours to help their products stand out,” says Kevin Barrance, Sales Manager Colours & Exports, Univar EMEA. “The food sector is an area where we see particular growth potential in the coming years and we are very well positioned to benefit from that trend with our comprehensive product portfolio.”
