Ingredion has today formed a new strategic alliance with Lyckeby Starch AB, a Swedish manufacturer of potato-based starch and fiber products for food and paper businesses.

Under the new agreement, Ingredion will exclusively distribute various potato starch and waxy barley ingredients from Lyckeby’s portfolio across specific countries in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific. 

The new strategic alliance, which will formally begin on September 1, will ensure food producers in specific countries across Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia-Pacific (APAC) have improved access to Lyckeby’s portfolio of specialty potato starch and waxy barley ingredients. This, coupled with Ingredion’s texture and application expertise, will open-up new possibilities in various food applications including meat, cheese, batters and breadings, Ingredion announces. 

Jorgen Kokke, President, APAC & EMEA, Ingredion, commented: “This is a great opportunity for us to expand our portfolio with a complementary range of specialty ingredients. There are clear synergies between the two companies, from our combined technical expertise to our shared commitment to providing consistent, high quality ingredients. We now have an extensive portfolio of modified starches and flours, which we can draw upon to advise customers on the best ingredient solution for their application and functionality requirements.”
