Berkem Group and Unipex announce a collaboration agreement

The Berkem group, a leading player in plant-based chemistry, and Unipex, one of the benchmark players in the specialty distribution market, have announced an exclusive distribution agreement in France for the entire cosmetics range of Berkem, the plant extraction subsidiary of the eponymous group. The aim is to accelerate the Berkem group's development in a fast-growing market by drawing on the expertise of a recognized player. 
Meeting market demand
Berkem caters for the cosmetics, food and nutraceutical markets, offering a product catalog of almost 40 products - divided into 3 categories: active ingredients (solid, liquid and technological), botanical extracts and floral waters. Growing demand in a highly dynamic market, coupled with strategic thinking on the part of the Berkem Group, led to the merger with Unipex. This "smart distributor" of specialty ingredients, present in 5 markets (pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, nutraceuticals, food and chemicals), will benefit from the presence of its teams in France, serving over 450 customers, and from a team of 20 people for the cosmetics division. By complementing the range distributed by Unipex, Berkem is positioning itself to meet strong market expectations, such as organic, local and upcycling products.

This agreement is in line with our desire to project ourselves commercially into the future in our various territories, by relying on business experts. In addition to our ability to accelerate the distribution of our product ranges, Unipex shares the same values as our Group, particularly in terms of CSR and our approach to the cosmetics business. " says Éric Moussu, Sales Director of the Berkem Group..
We are delighted to be able to draw on over 50 years of expertise in the distribution of specialty ingredients to represent the Berkem Group on the French market. As a partner, our mission will also be to support BERKEM's teams, particularly in marketing, CSR and the development of guidance formulas. " says Valérie Lepoultel, Director of Unipex's Cosmetics BU..
