Univar Solutions, a leading global solutions provider to users of specialty ingredients and chemicals, and Italmatch USA Corp, providers of advanced water management solutions using sustainable chemistry, announced a sole distribution agreement to expand their partnership in the United States and Canada in the homecare, industrial, and institutional (HI&I) cleaning ingredients markets. Adding Italmatch's Dequest® PB product line to Univar Solutions' North American sustainable and natural cleaning ingredients portfolio enhances the ongoing relationship between the two companies.

"Together with Italmatch, we recognize the growing worldwide demand for safe, effective, and environmentally friendly water solutions that can help manufacturers maintain a high level of cleaning performance," said James Peterson, global vice president of CARE for Univar Solutions. "We're committed to sustainable innovation and excited to be the market's sole distributor for Italmatch's Dequest PB carboxymethyl inulin (CMI) technology for natural HI&I cleaning applications in North America. CMI is a sustainable antiscalant, and adding this to our portfolio aligns with our focus on providing our customers with natural and sustainable ingredient options to respond to the demands of today's eco-conscious consumers."

Univar Solutions is a trusted provider of high-performance, eco-friendly solutions like CMI for water management and cleaning. CMI is a biopolymer derived from the roots of chicory plants.

"We are excited to start working with Univar Solutions as our sole distributor for Dequest PB products in the North American market," said Mark Eyers, Global Advanced Water Solutions BU Vice President for Italmatch Chemicals. "Adding our CMI based products to Univar Solutions' HI&I product ranges will significantly increase the exposure of these bio-based products to the North American market cleaning products formulators, helping them to achieve the performance targets set for their sustainable product lines development."
