Azelis signs agreement with KMC for NZ distribution

Azelis has announced that it will be extending its partnership with KMC. As part of the agreement between the two companies, Azelis will be using KMC’s potato starches and proteins for its operations in New Zealand. The businesses have worked together previously under a similar in partnership in India.

KMC produces potato-based functional ingredients that can be used by food manufacturers for a variety of applications including for plant-based meat and dairy alternatives, and in protein and nutrition fortification. These ingredients will be used for Azelis’s food and nutrition brand, meeting market demands for sustainable plant-based products.

Jens Helmer Larsen, Director KMC Asia Pacific, said: “We are delighted to expand our business relationship with Azelis, building upon our successful partnership in India. As sustainability is essential to our business, we are very much aligned with Azelis’s goal of developing healthier solutions that incorporate plant-based ingredients for the Asia–Pacific region. With Azelis’s market knowledge, strong sales capabilities and dedication to sustainability, we are confident that together we can look forward to continued growth in New Zealand’s food and nutrition industry.”

Kimberly Chung, Azelis Asia Pacific Business Development Director, said: “This distribution extension is a testament to KMC’s belief in our ability to further develop their business and create new opportunities through our deep knowledge of the food industry, and the innovative solutions we can provide thanks to our technical and formulation expertise. KMC’s comprehensive range of high-quality, sustainably farmed, potato-based ingredients attractively complements both our portfolio of products and our core values of providing sustainable ingredients to our partners.”
