Des Plaines, Ill.―Batory Foods has been named an authorized distributor for the Corbion product line, including lactic acid, lactic acid derivatives and lactides. The U.S.-produced Corbion products span functions―including preservation, flavor enhancement, pH regulation and mineral fortification―across meat and poultry, dairy, beverage, confectionery, nutritional foods, fruits and vegetables and more.

This development is the natural progression of the flourishing relationship Batory and Corbion have enjoyed for years. Today, Corbion can focus on its core business, while Batory—with its multiple warehouses across the U.S.―will manage the needs of customers with a demand for less-than-truckload shipments.

“This is a win for Batory, Corbion and, most important, our customers,” says Ken Krasowski, Senior Product Manager. “Corbion benefits from the efficiencies we offer. For customers, we can quickly deliver anywhere across the U.S. So we’re taking lead times down from two to three weeks to just a few days.”

Moreover, customers who already source from Batory can add Corbion their existing orders, using Batory as a centralized provider for all ingredient needs. This eliminates the paperwork- and time-intensive process of working with varied distributors.
