Rousselot BV, part of Darling Ingredients, and Giusto Faravelli Spa are proud to announce a new distribution partnership in Italy, effective from October 2020.
Faravelli is an international reference point in the distribution of raw materials and ingredients for the nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, food, chemical, and cosmetic industries. Rousselot is global leader in collagen-based solutions, offering a large product portfolio encompassing three strategic segments: Food and Pharmaceutical Gelatins (Rousselot Functional Ingredients), Hydrolyzed Collagens (Rousselot Health & Nutrition), and Biomedical Gelatins and Collagens (Rousselot Biomedical).
Under the new partnership, Faravelli will distribute across Italy the pharmaceutical and food gelatins produced by Rousselot Functional Ingredients. They will also distribute Peptan, the world’s leading collagen peptides brand, produced by Rousselot Health & Nutrition.
Peptan collagen peptides are bioactive ingredients specifically developed to offer multiple health benefits and functional properties. Peptan are highly digestible type I collagen peptides from bovine, porcine, or fish origin, and can support overall mobility, skin, and beauty. Peptan IIm is a type II hydrolyzed collagen matrix, containing glycosaminoglycans (GAG), specifically designed to promote joint health. Several scientific studies have shown Peptan’s ability to promote a healthy lifestyle.
“We are really pleased to start this new collaboration with Faravelli”, says Gaëtan Noiret, EMEA Nutrition Commercial Director of Rousselot. “The new partnership will reinforce our presence in the Italian market and our indirect customers will benefit from Faravelli’s service excellence.”
The partnership means Rousselot has become a supplier of Faravelli’s Food, Pharmaceutical, and Nutra Divisions. These divisions collaborate with internationally renowned producers. Their team of professionals are able to support customers from a commercial, technical, and scientific point of view.
“We are really proud to welcome a partner of very clear international fame. The collaboration will give us the opportunity to offer an even more complete range of high-quality ingredients, with high technological and nutritional value,” declares Guido Rovati Sales and Marketing Director of Faravelli. “The collagen-based solutions of Rousselot will be of strategic importance for the Italian nutra food and pharma industry.“
