The French company specialising in bio-based chemistry has signed a distribution agreement with Kreglinger, a major player in the distribution of specialty ingredients, for all of its cosmetic ingredients for the United Kingdom market.

Founded in Antwerp in 1797, Kreglinger is one of the last independent specialty ingredient distribution companies in Europe. A 100% Belgian and fully family owned company, Krelinger’s core activities include the promotion and distribution of specialty ingredients with applications in end markets as diverse as food, cosmetics, and crop protection. The company also operates a cosmetics department that provides its customers with the most appropriate advice for the creation of new solutions thanks to its wide range of raw materials of natural and organic origin.

"With this new agreement, Groupe Berkem pursues and strengthens its strategy of internationalization of its solutions for the cosmetics market. The United Kingdom is one of the three main markets for this industry in Europe, and we are proud to partner with a group such as Kreglinger to distribute our ingredients in this country. We are confident that Kreglinger’s experience and expertise will enable us to increase our market share in this very promising territory," said Éric Moussu, Vice President of Sales of Groupe Berkem.

Kreinger’s specialty distribution activities are closely linked to the logistics and forwarding services offered by Kreglinger logistics (Kregspedi).

“We are pleased to be able to offer our Bristish customers Groupe Berkem’s range of plant-based ingredients. This range should generate a strong interest among manufacturers in the cosmetics industry, which are constantly seeking innovation and are more than ever interested in benefiting from the virtues attributed to biobased products," added Wim Arnouts, CEO of Kreglinger.
