Earlier today, Brenntag announced the launch of its global Food & Nutrition brand. The coordinated business unit and management will draw together the company’s food and beverage specific capabilities in 73 countries, with over 750 dedicated employees and 28 food application and development centers.
The move will benefit customers and suppliers by helping them better understand the market specific needs and developments. The 28 food application and development centers features technical teams that create tailor-made food and nutrition formulations and deliver smart solutions. The Food & Nutrition organization will use the market leading distribution excellence and infrastructure of the Brenntag Group.
“Brenntag Food & Nutrition is the perfect combination of specialized support for the Food & Nutrition market, distribution capabilities, and Brenntag legacy, it is true value. We want our partners to sense that difference, to sense the difference we can make to their product and their business”, says Tom Corcoran, Vice President Food & Nutrition Brenntag Group. “Our biggest asset, however, is our team who shares a common passion for food & nutrition. We aspire to be a living network, sharing best practices, knowledge, and insights, and ultimately turning trends into marketable products for our partners.”
Tom Corcoran is leading the global business as Vice President Food & Nutrition Brenntag Group, overseeing global targets, strategy, and marketing. Brenntag’s four regions are each covered by a Vice President: Frank Haven for Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA); Margaret Chua for Asia Pacific; Larry Davis for North America; and Tomás Navarro for Latin America, who will be responsible for regional strategy and operations.
“Brenntag has a significant Food & Nutrition business on a global scale with a good mix of ingredients, specialty chemicals, and value added services,” says Henri Nejade, Member of the Management Board of Brenntag Group. “With our capabilities we are now at a tipping point where it made sense to join all respective forces to concentrate on Food & Nutrition which is an important industry segment for Brenntag with attractive opportunities for growth. With the new set-up, we will be in a much better position to meet the expectations of our current and future business partners on both local and global level.”
