Demand for plant-based foods ignites new distribution agreement between Alberta-based Top Health Ingredients and Chemiplas Australia & New Zealand
Edmonton, AB: Plant-based foods – no longer the isolated domain of vegans – is driving the demand for plant-based ingredients. According to a survey by the Nutrition Business Journal, as many as 26% of consumers now fall into the category of “flexitarians,” who prefer a more plant-heavy diet, and research group Mintel says 31% of Americans now practice “meat-free days.” That’s good news for Canadian based Top Health Ingredients, Inc., a non-GMO, plant-based functional food ingredient company, and their new distribution partner, Chemiplas. THI is delighted to announce that Chemiplas is now the exclusive distributor for Top Health’s industry-leading proteins and fibers in Australia and New Zealand. Products include Top Health’s industry-leading line of AdvantAmino™ plant-based proteins and AdvantaFiber™, naturally sweet fiber, now FSANZ approved in Australia & New Zealand.
A 2017 Deloitte report notes that more than 88% of companies in the APAC (Asia-Pacific) region have reformulated products to include healthier ingredients. That’s no surprise to Top Health’s CEO, Kimmo Lucas: “It reflects what is happening across the globe as consumers, particularly millennials, demand more functional, plant-based ingredients in their food and beverages.”
Lucas and his team are excited to partner with Chemiplas, stating, “The partnership makes sense on many levels. Australia, New Zealand and Canada share many of the same cultural values and, as companies, we share the same vision: innovative, high-quality ingredients and outstanding customer service.”
