Basel, 04 December 2006

New Sales Company in India

Basel, December 4, 2006 With the opening of a new sales company in Mumbai, India, registered under the Companies Act as Jungbunzlauer India Pvt. Ltd. and fully operational since October 1, 2006, Jungbunzlauer has taken another important step in completing her strategy of being a truly global food ingredients and specialties company and an even closer partner for many of our already existing multi-national and local customers in this fascinating country.

After having been active in this large and promising market for more than a decade already, it was decided to put more emphasis on the development and growth of Jungbunzlauer’s specialty ingredients in this market, but also to strengthen and improve our position in the more traditional products Citrics, Xanthan Gum and Gluconates.

At the same time we are glad to say that we will continue our cooperation with Lucid Colloids, Mumbai, who have been our esteemed distributor for many years, for some products and certain areas.

A very large, fast growing population with ever changing lifestyles and the changing eating behaviours of the majority of the Indian consumers make this an unique and very interesting market for the decades to come. Thereby, not only the adaptation to a more Westernized eating style but also maintaining the traditional Indian cuisine offer plenty of opportunities for the development of new, sophisticated foods which will require modern, safe and healthy ingredients. Jungbunzlauer has them all.
