LOS ANGELES, Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of the plan to continue their annual growth rate that has exceeded 100% since its founding in 2005, Axiom Foods, www.axiomfoods.com, announces it has entered into master distribution agreements in Canada with Break-Thru Nutrition of Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada, and in Europe with Nordic Food Partners A/S of Copenhagen, Denmark. These agreements enable international food, beverage and nutrceutical manufacturers to more readily access Axiom Foods's entire, growing line of chemical-free, non-GMO Oryzatein® whole grain brown rice protein ingredients, rice by-products such as milk, fiber, sugar, bran, and bran oil, plus other nutrition-packed plant ingredients such as protein powder from peas and super foods including sacha inchi.
"The time is right to focus growth on international Oryzatein® rice protein sales through these carefully chosen, premium distributors", commented David Janow, CEO of Axiom Foods. "We are ready to meet manufacturers' demand for consistent ingredient supply thanks to expanded production facilities and to meet the strict European and Canadian standards through increased quality control and continued dedication to being one of the few hexane-free plant ingredient producers."
"We are thrilled to expand Axiom's penetration of the Canadian rice market and the agreement also allows us to guarantee supply and vertically integrate key ingredients for our customers", says Carmine DiGiovanni, VP, Sales & Marketing for The Rhema Group which includes Break-Thru Nutrition.
Rene Borgholt, CEO and Founder of Nordic Food Partners A/S Borgholt added that "Axiom Foods' excellent range of rice proteins provides us an exciting new area for expansion to complement our existing portfolio of rice and rice based products. The clientele for superior rice proteins in Europe is already a part of our industrial and retail space and we look forward to becoming a major player in the European proteins segment with Axiom's support."
Axiom Foods remains dedicated to proprietary research and processes, with the ultimate goal of helping food, beverage and nutraceutical products world-wide become more inclusive by using allergen-free plant ingredients. Axiom continues to set the bar as Oryzatein® is being used as the USP monographed standard for all brown rice proteins, and Axiom is being named Nutritional Outlook's "Best of 2012".
