Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients (JJING), the ingredients business unit of diversified Jebsen & Jessen Group, and Nactarome, a European group specialising in production of natural colors and flavorings, have recently announced a new partnership agreement that will see JJING becoming the exclusive distributor for Nactarome’s food and beverage colouring solutions in Southeast Asia and China.
JJING promotes and distributes chemical and life sciences ingredients for multiple industries and manufacturing applications, including food ingredients, pharmaceutical, personal & home care, and performance chemicals, with direct presence in 8 ASEAN countries and China.

Nactarome has seen exponential growth in the last five years, now comprising 11 production sites with over 500 employees.
The new partnership will see JJING leverage its extensive network in Southeast Asia and China to distribute Nactarome’s range of colouring solutions, under the brand FiorioColori. These clean label colouring products will now be available in the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and China.
Geoff Allen, Managing Director, Asia Pacific, Nactarome said, “The FioriColori brand has a successful history of providing cost-effective and stable colouring solutions for a variety of applications in the food and beverage industry. Due to the continued success of our European operation, Nactarome has decided to work exclusively with Jebsen & Jessen to expand our reach in selected geographies in the Asia Pacific.”
Ratana Vongmukdaporn, Regional Business Line Head – Food and Pharmaceutical & Personal Care, Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients (T) Ltd said, “We are honoured to partner Nactarome and add their colouring solutions to our portfolio of product offerings, to strengthen our ability to deliver global standards of expertise and solutions to our valued customers.

The variety of natural colours available from FioriColori’s natural and clean label ranges will allow JJING to provide customers with a wide range of ingredient choices for their product developments. The partnership will also allow customer product ideas to be translated into real products in order to meet the growing consumer demand for clean label and authentic ingredients.
