Our food additives department is divided into two international trade activities


For hydrocolloids, everything starts with a rigorous selection of our partners in Asia and Europe. Do you need a solution adapted to your recipe? Our team of engineers conducts R&D tests in the laboratory to find the product that will best suit your needs.

Then the test is reproduced at the customer’s site, in the laboratory and on an industrial scale, with one goal in mind: to always guarantee the stability of the product’s functionality

Common Additives

For common additives, we speak of “simple” trading.

However, there is nothing simplistic about this activity since we carefully choose suppliers for the quality of their goods.

After analyzing their ranges in terms of quality and regulations, we put our network in competition and then select the offer with the most advantageous price.

Good to know

Do you have the will to converge towards natural products ? Let us help you: we offer 100% plant-based solutions that we will be delighted to present to you.

Tailor-made support

Within the framework of food additives trading, we make it a point to accompany each industrial customer, but also to provide technical assistance, make innovative proposals for new products and create tailor-made solutions.

In addition, we take care of all the international trade procedures by ensuring the transport, documentation, licenses, and customs clearance of the ordered products throughout the world.

We also master all payment methods: documentary remittance (Cash against documents, D/P), documentary credit (Letter of credit, L/C), and bank transfer (Telex Transfer, T/T). We can also ship full container loads to almost any port in the world, and/or to our customer’s warehouse with all the necessary documents and certificates.
