PLThomas has announced it a strategic alliance with Polifenoles
Naturales (Polinat) of Spain to develop and market new ingredients
- an arrangement that will also help the Spanish company conquer
the US market.

PLThomas is a nutraceutical and functional food ingredients supplier based out of New Jersey and Polinat, based in the Canary Islands, produces natural fruit and botanical extracts. While PLThomas already markets a range of Polinat's fruit extracts, including Pomegranate P40p, the new agreement represents a "strengthening"​ of this relationship, PLThomas has indicated.

"This is a preclude to what we'll be announcing,"​ PLThomas spokerperson Paula Nurnberger told NutraIngredients-USA.com. The US company confirmed that the development of new ingredients is in the works between the two companies, but would not disclose the exact kind of ingredients.

As for Polinat, it is looking to the relationship as a means of piggy-backing its way into the US market and getting greater brand awareness.

"Without a doubt, the agreement with PLThomas and its market experience will allow us to be closer to manufacturers and consumers and adapt our development to the necessities of the market,"​ Polinat president Dr Miguel Jimenez told NutraIngredients-USA.com.

"Until now our efforts have been concentrated much more in the research and development of products rather than in commercial aspects or marketing,"​ said Jimenez.

Other than Pomegranate P40p, PLThomas also currently markets Polinat's "Appol"​, Plum (Prune), Grape leaves, White Cherry, Blueberry, Granatoil-pomegranate seed oil.

PLThomas specializes in water-soluble gums, natural flavors, botanical extracts, nano-encapsulation technologies and clinically-supported branded ingredients.
