Alsiano is new distributor of Ajinomoto amino acids for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries in Sweden and Norway

 We are pleased to announce that Ajinomoto has appointed Alsiano as their distributor in Sweden and Norway. Alsiano has represented Ajinomoto on the Danish market for many years, and in future Alsiano will thus be able also to introduce Ajinomoto’s line of high quality amino acids to the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries in Sweden and Norway.

Ajinomoto is a leading manufacturer of amino acids and the first company in the world to produce amino acid crystals for infusions, enteral nutrition products and pharmaceutical ingredients. The areas of amino acid applications have been expanded to food, beverage and toiletry products to add nutritional and physiological value to the products. Ajinomoto provides both a full range of the Ajinomoto brand amino acids together with custom blends tailored to the needs of customers for pharmaceutical, food, beverage and cosmetics applications. In addition to the excellent quality, which is to be expected from the world's leading producer of amino acids, the company offers its customers technical and regulatory assistance which is essential to commercialise products containing amino acids.

Flexible packaging sizes
Ajinomoto strives to supply the highest quality products and services based on reliable and flexible production. Therefore Ajinomoto is offering amino acids in 10 kg and 1 kg packing sizes.

Yutaka Morota, Sales & Marketing Manager, Amino Acids, AminoScience Division Europe, has the following comments to this change of organization, “In our experience, working with the pharmaceutical industry requires, among other things, long term commitment, technical competence and a thorough understanding of the development process in the industry. By appointing Alsiano in Sweden and Norway, we strongly believe that Ajinomoto shall be able to meet these demands.”

Anders Hager, sales director of Alsiano, is pleased with Ajinomoto’s decision and states, “We are very proud that Ajinomoto has chosen us to represent them in Sweden and Norway and we consider this decision a token of Ajinomoto’s satisfaction with the work we have performed so far within the Danish pharma and healthcare industry. For Alsiano, the addition of Ajinomoto’s amino acids will make our product portfolio vis-à-vis our Swedish and Norwegian customers more complete and thus more attractive”.
