Tate & Lyle has named Quadra as its national distributor in Canada for its food and beverage solutions division.
Chemicals and ingredients distributor Quadra has facilities in Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia, and more than 40 stocking locations strategically located across Canada.
Both companies said that the partnership builds on their aim of bringing innovative solutions to the Canadian market.
Bill Magee, general manager of food and beverage solutions North America at Tate & Lyle, said: “We sought a well-rounded specialty ingredients distribution partner to support our entire product portfolio in all market categories.
“Tate & Lyle’s extensive portfolio of texturants, fibres, no- and low-calorie sweeteners, and stabilisation ingredients is well aligned with Quadra’s depth of expertise and service capabilities in the Canadian market.
“The synergies between our companies and this expanded partnership will provide mutual growth opportunities and increased penetration in the Canadian markets we serve.”
Quadra Ingredients vice president Christine Infilise said: “Quadra is thrilled to expand our partnership with Tate & Lyle, a leader in innovative ingredients and solutions with an extraordinary passion for the science of food.
“Adding Tate & Lyle into our family of world-class suppliers is complementary to Quadra Ingredients’ business model and is in alignment with our strategic vision.”
Earlier this year, Tate & Lyle secured a distribution agreement in the US with speciality ingredients distributor HORN.
