Blue Marble Biomaterials Secures Distribution Agreement with SAFC

Missoula, Montana, USA (PRWEB) January 23, 2013

Blue Marble Biomaterials, a specialty biochemical manufacturer founded in Seattle, Washington and based in Missoula, Montana, has secured an exclusive distribution contract with Sigma-Aldrich® Corporation’s custom manufacturing and services business unit, SAFC®. As a global manufacturer and distributor of specialty chemicals used in a wide variety of industries including food and beverage flavors, personal care ingredients, scientific research, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, the agreement gives SAFC’s customers ready access to Blue Marble’s offer of natural and sustainable biochemical alternatives. These products will be sold under the SAFC portfolio and are expected to be available for purchase in April of 2013.

“We are excited to announce this agreement with SAFC. Over the past several months, we worked closely together to develop a comprehensive strategy to offer our all-natural, drop-in replacement biochemicals to its customers. In 2010, twenty percent of all chemicals sold globally were sustainable. By 2025, the United States Department of Agriculture predicts that 45 to 50% of all chemicals sold will be sustainable. This relationship helps to illustrate the trend that is occurring with natural biochemicals and through this agreement with Blue Marble, SAFC has the potential to be the market frontrunner in offering natural biochemicals to its customers,” said Colby Underwood, Co-CEO and Chief Business Officer for Blue Marble Biomaterials.
