With the conspicuous vision of being a global leader in providing superior and trusted food & beverage ingredients, the Belgium-based leading distributor of speciality chemicals and ingredients - Azelis leverages its expertise in combining ingredients with ideas and creating opportunities through innovation to cater the needs of the food & beverage market.

A Reliable Merged Organization
Azelis, the global MNC organization has numerous number of branches worldwide for several verticals. To strengthen its position in the Indian food segment, the MNC chose MK Ingredients & Specialities and acquired its distribution activities as a 100 percent acquisition in 2019.

excel in the food sector of India. Today, under the aegis of Aparna Khurana (MD India) and Dipan Dalal (Head in the Food Business India), the organizations have evolved into one of the most reliable food ingredients and performance chemicals & additives distributor in India.

Aziles' offerings are characterized by an unrivalled level of customer visibility which is achieved through its unparalleled team of professionals, process & technology. The organization excels in providing excellent quality ingredients & chemicals along with top-notch technical support to its clients. But what actually segregates Aziles from the crowd is its purpose - `Innovation through formulation', leveraging which the company endeavors to revolutionize the segments in which it works. "We at Azelis strongly believe in innovation through formulation; so the idea is to innovate new products and introduce them to our clients, especially the small and mid-size clients," states Dipan.
