Fenchem, the Chinese producer of dietary supplements and functional foods, has opened an office in Vitkovice, Czech Republic with the aim of doubling the size of its European business, according to NutraIngredients.com.

The new facilities in the Ostrava region in the north east of the country include an administration centre, warehouse, transportation and delivery system together with a sales office. The site is expected to employ up to 10 local people.

Jenny Liu, a spokesperson for Fenchem China told NutraIngredients.com: “The office will allow us to supply a better service to our European customers – particularly those in central Europe.”

Fenchem produces soft capsules, hard capsules and tablets in fixed and custom product formulations.  It also produces fish oil, natural vitamin E and multi-vitamin products as well as tailor-made multi-nutrients premixes for human supplements, dairy products and other foods.

Fenchem hopes to double its European business’s turnover within three years.

“Europe is our main target market. With our new European base, Fenchem will pay more attention to local regulations and to developing more products that cater to European customers’ needs,” Liu was quoted as saying.

The company also expects to expand into the European market for food additives and cosmetic ingredients. Fenchem China launched into these markets last year.
