Barentz International has formed a joint venture with Curaçao-headquartered Deltagen Group, which boasts a local presence in Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Chile and Peru.

The two companies announced a strategic cooperation last November, and they have now decided to deepen the partnership by establishing a joint venture. “Deltagen Group, with its well-established customer network and strong management, is a great match for Barentz and we are convinced that the Joint Venture will help us realize our vision for this high potential market,”​ said Mr Hidde van der Wal, CEO of Barentz International.

Jaap Luursema, CEO of Deltagen Group, added: “Our combined product offering and technical product knowledge will help further leverage our ‘value added ingredient proposition’ to our customers and will further strengthen our position as all-round food ingredient partner in our region. 

“In addition to the food and beverage sector we have been serving the past 30 years, this joint venture will also enable us to increase our presence in the feed sector in the markets we serve.”
