Cornelius Group, an independent European distributor of raw materials and ingredients, will expand its health and nutrition offer across Europe.

The company offers a range of product solutions from colours, coating agents, food emulsifiers and proteins to vitamins and minerals.

Per Rehné, director of health and nutrition at Cornelius, said: “We are taking large strides to further develop the range of leading manufacturers we work with and increase the availability of our expertise in food and beverage product innovation and manufacturing.”

Last year, Cornelius introduced Milne’s MicroDried fruit to the UK market. Made from 100% all-natural, nutrient-rich fruit, MicroDried ingredient products are well suited to the baking sector, said the company.
