Friesland Foods Domo, the food ingredients arm of Dutch dairy group Friesland Foods, has named its European distribution partner.

The company said this morning (1 October) that Netherlands-based IMCD would act as its sales, marketing and distribution partner on the continent.

"We chose IMCD because of their professional approach to the pharmaceutical and food industry throughout Europe," Friesland Foods Domo MD Roelof Joosten said

The deal excludes the Spanish market, Friesland Foods Domo added.

The company develops and sells ingredients and semi-finished products based on whey and milk, such as whey protein concentrates and bio-functional ingredients.
