International Flavors and Fragrances Inc. (IFF) has extended its distribution agreement with Azelis to market fragrances in Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary, effective Jan. 1, 2013.
The exclusive distribution agreement covers selected customers in the personal care and home care (including fabric care) sectors. This complements existing agreements between the two companies in Western Europe. To support these new markets it has commissioned a new, fully-equipped Azelis fragrance evaluation laboratory in Bulgaria.
“Azelis now has an enhanced fragrance applications team located in Spain, Bulgaria and the UK to support our sales teams across Europe," said Thomas Schlenstedt, Azelis International Principal Manager Fragrances. "With the new Bulgarian facility close to our new markets, we are well positioned to efficiently answer client briefs and provide the level of service that IFF customers have come to expect in that region”.
The extended agreement will cover the supply of fragrances into Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary for cleaners, detergents, fabric care, air care, personal wash, beauty care and fine fragrances.
