Alland & Robert and Sayaji to jointly collaborate on acacia gum production in India.
October 11, 2018 – S.D.P.A., the holding company which owns Alland & Robert, is partnering with Indian based company Sayaji Industries Limited to form a Joint-Venture.
The companies will collaborate to manufacture locally and supply spray dried acacia gum for the growing Indian market.
Alland & Robert, an expert of acacia gum since 1884, will provide technological know-how for the processing of the acacia gum in order to offer the best quality product for the fast-evolving Indian market.
Anne-Sophie Alland, head of strategy and development at Alland & Robert, says: “The Indian acacia gum market is complex, aiming at both the industry and final consumers. This joint venture is a great opportunity for Alland & Robert to dive into the Indian market with a local partner. Sayaji Industries Limited is also a family-owned company with the same values of hard work and business agility as Alland & Robert; thus they are a natural partner for us.”
Sayaji Industries Limited already has a strong foothold and a steady reputation in the Indian food industry with its large corn wet milling business, and is therefore a natural choice of partner for Alland & Robert. The two companies have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding and they will sign a definitive agreement beginning of 2019.
