Caldic B.V., distributor and producer of food ingredients and chemicals, is continuing its growth in emerging markets through the creation of Caldic India Pvt Ltd, based in Mumbai, India.
This entity will focus on chemical as well as food distribution handling as a full service distributor for mainly the chemical, pharmaceutical and food markets.
Caldic’s main activity is the distribution of chemicals and food ingredients. The Indian economy is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. A large demanding domestic market and a highly skilled workforce are factors for Caldic to open up a new market beyond its current core strengths in Europe, Asia and North America. Caldic India would leverage on its global partnerships and knowledge in the chemical and food sectors and bring unique products and innovative services to Indian customers. The focus is to add value for our suppliers and customers and being a reliable partner respecting group principles of Responsible Care, Quality, Health, Safety and Environment.
This move allows Caldic’s principals access to a new customer base alongside a trusted partner in chemical and food ingredient distribution. According to Mr. O.C. van Caldenborgh “Caldic looks at India as an important and strategic growth market and it is with this belief that we have decided to have a direct presence with the establishment of Caldic India, headquartered in Mumbai, the commercial capital and chemical hub of India”.
The managing director of Caldic India, Mr. D. Grover says: “As a result of increased globalization, both customers and suppliers are looking out for a professional and responsible partner in India. Caldic India is committed to long term market development and growth of our Indian operations by developing partnerships with customers and suppliers that are looking for added value services and sufficient growth opportunities for their products”.
