Clarkson Soy Products partners with Italian oil producer to expand organic soy lecithin supply
Clarkson Soy Products, Cerro Gordo, Ill., entered into an agreement with Molino Oleificio Manzoni S.r.l., Vailate, Italy, for exclusive North American distribution rights for its organic soy lecithin.
A master oil producer for more than 100 years, Molino Oleificio Manzoni produces organic oil and meal from soybeans, sunflower, rapeseed and safflower in its state-of-the-art processing facilities in Italy.
The addition of this organic lecithin supply, coupled with Clarkson’s own U.S processing capacity, will significantly alleviate the current supply-demand imbalance of organic soy lecithin, according to the company. The first shipments are expected to arrive for distribution in mid-January.
