LA MIRADA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Continuing its campaign to meet the demand of the food industry’s health and wellness movement, the E.T. Horn Company, a leading distributor, supplier, marketer, and manufacturer of specialty chemicals and ingredients, today announced that it has been selected by ENRECO, Inc. to represent and distribute its full line of flaxseed products. The company will have exclusive distribution rights in 12 western states including Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
Based in Sheboygan Falls, WI, ENRECO produces a wide range of kosher products including its proprietary Sterling Choice™ smooth or traditional grind flaxseed, HiOmega™ flax oil, and Flax-It™ Nuggets. All ENRECO flax ingredients are available as either organic or conventional, and with color choices of golden or brown.
The new partnership is expected to broaden the variety of health and wellness products and increase market share within E.T. Horn’s FoodTech Group.
“Once again, we are proud and poised to be working with ENRECO given their commitment to product excellence, especially in the functional food category,” said Lisa Alley-Zarkades, Vice President of E.T. Horn’s FoodTech Group. “ENRECO’S superior quality flaxseed ingredients are an ideal fit for our customers that are meeting consumer demand for healthier and organic end products.”
With so many domestic food manufacturers requesting organics and premium components like Omega-3 to complement their conventional product lines, the supply chain can at times be uncertain, making the ingredients difficult to source.
“When we sought to expand to the western U.S., we looked for a top-notch organization that could satisfy demand and remedy any potential distribution problems,” said Chad Boeckman, ENRECO National Sales Manager. “We surveyed the landscape, asked a lot of questions, and learned that E.T. Horn is the premier distribution partner in the West. With their strong technical sales team, accessible and willing senior management, and exceptional logistic practices, we anticipate our products will penetrate the western food industry, leading to mutual success for our organizations.”
