News Release: Evolva Signs North America Distributor Agreement for Veri-te™

October 10th, 2019

Oct 10, 2019 – Evolva has signed a distribution agreement for its Veri-te™ resveratrol in North America with B&D Nutritional Ingredients. Finding a well-matched distributor is a key strategy for further driving sales of Veri-te in North America beyond Evolva’s existing customers. B&D Nutritional Ingredients (B&D) understands excellent customer service, branded ingredients, innovation trends, and works only with products backed by strong science.

This new partnership should soon bear fruit with several of B&D’s customers already qualifying Veri-te resveratrol in established products to convert over to Veri-te, with others looking into new product development.

According to Brad Van Dyke, Vice President of B&D, “the cooperation with Evolva is a perfect match, and we look forward to distributing the innovative Veri-te resveratrol in North America. Veri-te resveratrol fits well with our product range of branded ingredients for the dietary supplement market.” B&D is based in Carlsbad, California, with more than 25 years of experience in distribution and the application of ingredients with supporting clinical studies. “We are pleased to offer Veri-te as part of our product portfolio and look forward to customers quickly adopting this promising ingredient. At SupplySide West, we are thrilled to host a reception for our customers and feature this new relationship with Evolva,” mentioned Van Dyke.

According to Clare Panchoo, Vice President of Health Ingredients at Evolva “we are excited to expand our network of customers in North America with Veri-te resveratrol, which is free from the presence of contaminants, such as pesticides, emodin and PAHs, that can be found in other sources of resveratrol. We believe B&D will be a great partner for Evolva in North America.”
