Barentz to establish Ho Chi Minh City office

After several years of operation in the Vietnamese market, Barentz International announces the establishment of an office in Ho Chi Minh City. The activities of Barentz Vietnam will focus on nutrition and quality enhancement within the Vietnamese food industry, where the nutritional premixes and functional blends from the company's production facility Vitablend in Singapore will have a prominent role.

"The Vietnamese consumers are getting increasingly concerned with quality", said Mrs Hang Nguyen, director of Barentz Vietnam. "Through Barentz' excellent ingredients portfolio and production facilities in the region, we can offer our clients within the Vietnamese food industry products of the highest quality, while also providing them with knowledge and support in choosing the optimal ingredients combinations in all stages of the food manufacturing process. Our total offer, from source to solution, will clearly improve the quality level on the Vietnamese food market."

Vietnam has, says Barentz, seen amazing economic growth and the population is much healthier now than 20 years ago. But there is still much to do in the years to come to reduce poverty and increase the health level of the Vietnamese people, the company believes. Barentz production facilities for Vitablend in Singapore will deliver nutritional premixes and functional blends that the company believes will enhance the nutritional values of Vietnamese food products and meet the demands of producers and the consumers.

"Through our experienced team in Vietnam we have direct access to the Vietnamese market, which quickly will accelerate our growth," said Hidde van der Wal, CEO of Barentz International. "We can offer the Vietnamese food industry a wide product portfolio of high quality ingredients. In fact, through our activities in Vietnam over the past years, Barentz has already become the market leader for nutritional ingredients for dairy and infant products in Vietnam. Having established a new legal entity, we are now also planning to expand our offer to other industry segments such as Pharmaceuticals, Personal Care and Animal Nutrition over the next two years."
