Galactic continues its strategic expansion with the opening of a coordination office in Latin America. Located in Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil, the office will service and develop Galactic’s existing Latin American business and provide a foothold location for continued expansion throughout the continent.
Galactic has had a presence in Latin America for years through long terms relationships with end users and strategic partnerships. Those partnerships will be strengthened and will be better supported by an office located in the area.

The office will feature Galactic comprehensive product ranges and services to provide the best service the clients in this region. Denis Wiliquet added “Galactic is a resourceful corporation, with a strong commitment to develop and share expertise. We strive to provide the most adequate support to our clients by understanding their applications, the environment and the logistic needs. Also, the office will develop its ability to launch new products like the Adagio range (natural slow acid releasers) and new concepts such as natural ingredients, clean labelling and sodium reduction in Latin America.”
“On top of our traditional business in the food industry, we also see a huge potential in industrial, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical applications” said Wiliquet.
