Brenntag to distribute Kronos titanium dioxide in Europe

MULHEIM, GERMANY: Brenntag AG said that it will become the exclusive distribution partner for Kronos speciality titanium dioxide (TiO2) grades marketed into pharma, cosmetics, food and animal nutrition industries. Effective 1 January 2018, the exclusive agreement will cover the distribution in the Western Europe region.

The distribution includes the titanium dioxide grades Kronos 1171 and Kronos 2971 which comply with the product safety legislation 1223/2009/EC (cosmetics), 1333/2008/EC (foodstuff additives), 231/2012/EU (food colour), European Pharmacopoeia and FSSC 22000.

Kronos 1171 is an anatase pigment approved for colouring food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and tobacco products. Kronos 2971 is a rutile pigment approved for colouring foodstuffs and cosmetics. Brenntag holds a strong foothold in the EMEA wide Life Science industry and thus provides an excellent platform to further grow the Kronos product range.

“This is a great addition to our existing product portfolio and it further deepens and strengthens our global business relationship with Kronos. Our excellent market expertise, long-term experience, and great customer proximity will ease the sales and marketing of Kronos products,” said Uwe Schultke, COO Brenntag EMEA.

“We are very excited to enter into this new partnership with Brenntag for the distribution of our food, pharma and cosmetics line. We are confident that this collaboration will help us grow the business through increased market exposure and provide improved service to customers on technical, regulatory and commercial aspects,” added Jean-Pierre Gravel, president Kronos Europe.
