Germany-based Brenntag has announced a European supplier agreement with US-based MycoTechnology, Inc. for its products derived from mushroom mycelia.

The distribution deal covers Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Benelux, France, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Established in 2013, MycoTechnology creates products from mushroom mycelia, including FermentIQ protein, a line of plant protein products produced via a proprietary fermentation process that harnesses the power of mushroom mycelia to make plant proteins.

MycoTechnology also offers ClearIQ flavor, a line of mushroom fermentation-derived flavor modulation tools that decrease the perception of bitter and off-notes.

“This supplier agreement will enable Brenntag Specialties customers to access MycoTechnology products to support innovation in meat analog, dairy alternative, protein beverages, baked goods, snacks and other applications,” ​said Frank Haven, President Nutrition EMEA at Brenntag.

Alan Hahn, CEO of MycoTechnology added that the new partnership with Brenntag is a major step in his company’s European expansion plans. “As a global market leader in ingredient distribution, Brenntag will be instrumental in bringing our novel ingredients to scale in the European market,”​ he said.
