The agreement, which covers distribution in France and Belgium, began last month and builds on an existing deal already in place with Denk Ingredients that concerns the Eastern European region.
“We have learned over the last two years that Natural is a serious and honest distributor,” says Stein Ulve, founder and CEO of Eevia Health.
“Their values are coherent with ours, and they provide extra value through their systematic approach to quality and customer satisfaction. We at Eevia Health are very excited to develop our cooperation with Natural.”
Finland-based Eevia Health’s speciality focuses on Arctic plant extracts that address a number of eye, brain and metabolic health concerns.
The firm’s extracts that include organic bilberry, lingonberry, chaga mushroom, and pine bark are said to thrive in the country’s arctic conditions, even helping to boost purity and nutrient levels.
Earlier this year, the firm reopened one of its production facilities after a €1m investment to upgrade equipment, machines, and technology, adding additional green-chemistry production credentials to the facility in Kauhajoki, Finland.
The firm expanded their distribution partnership with Denk Ingredients back in January 2017, adding Hungary, Romania and Slovenia to its distribution network.
These territories add to the existing region of Germany, Austria and Switzerland which Denk Ingredients have already served throughout 2016.
With Natural Functional Ingredients on board the agreement represents another long-term partnership with a trusted manufacturer for the Loire Valley-based distributors.
“We have known the company Eevia for several years and we were convinced about their products and values from the beginning,” adds Christopher Desailly, founder and CEO of Natural.
“We are very proud and happy to distribute such a transparent and sustainable ingredients company such as Eevia.”
Natural Functional Ingredients also make available its own range of natural and functional ingredients for the food supplement industry that include mushrooms, plant extracts, probiotics and vitamins.
Just this month, the firm made available its Rhuleave-K product, a combination of plant extracts that is said to relieve pain.
Made with Boswellia, Sesame and Turmeric, the formula works synergistically to provide fast relief from musculoskeletal pain.
