Alan Kent, commercial director SIS and Asian Blending Industrial at Asian Blending, said the company is a long-standing buyer on GDT Marketplace, and now is moving to be a seller as well.
“The growth of GDT Marketplace is an exciting development for the dairy industry,” Kent said.
“While traditional dairy products such as milk powders, fats and proteins are well established on GDT’s platforms, we are excited to be introducing a new wave of product types.
“Our initial product offering will include flavored milk powders with a view to introduce nutritional milk powders and instant coffee mixes in the future.”
Variety of products possible
Asian Blending manufactures food ingredient blends, specializing in the beverage, dairy and confectionery sectors.
Eric Hansen, director of GDT, said Asian Blending’s products show the variety of dairy ingredients it is possible to sell on the platform.
“We’re pleased to see a non-traditional dairy company using GDT Marketplace, and providing another supply region for buyers of speciality dairy ingredients.
“Buyers want more product choice from different regions throughout the world,” Hansen said.
Asian Blending commenced sales on GDT Marketplace this month, with a total of five sellers now registered to list products on the platform.
