Direct Food Ingredients has announced the opening of an American office as part of its expansion plans.
The food and nutritional ingredients distributor has settled in Los Angeles for its dedicated office and warehouse facility, which will support its international expansion.
Headed up by Abe Cortez, Vice President of the US office, the new base will focus on the sports nutrition and nutraceutical sectors, two areas that the family owned business has already conquered from its head office in the UK.
Managing Director, Steve Loake, said: “Opening the new office is a huge achievement and an important step in our goal to bring our professionalism, stringent procedures and knowledge of this complex market overseas.
“Over the past 20 years, we have become an industry leader in the UK and it is now time for us to expand overseas. The US is the ideal place to begin and we look forward to supplying customers with our impeccable ingredients from our vast portfolio.”
