Tiger at Vitafoods



Partly in response to predicted CAGR growth of 5.7% through 2027, Maypro has opened a European office near Milan, Italy. In-market representation allows us to effectively leverage this momentum to increase ingredient sales in the European Economic Area (EEA) and to expand the portfolio of Europe-made proprietary branded ingredients (PBIs) for distribution in the Americas (AMERS) and Asia-Pacific (APAC) markets.

“Our new office opens the door to our carrying some stock in Europe to improve lead time, in addition to our being able to tap into deep knowledge about local regulations, import/export requirements, market information and technical capabilities, in addition to the ability to frequently visit customers and to strengthen our valued partnerships,” says Isabel Elias-Castro, President of the Maypro Global Nutrition Group.

Alessandro Piccolo of ALDL Consulting, will lead the new office.

“Alessandro’s wide-ranging industry experience, deep technical knowledge—including a master’s degree in chemistry, strong network and, perhaps most importantly, a professional and hard-working personality is well aligned with Maypro’s culture,” notes Tiger Shirozu, Director of Maypro’s Global Export Division.

Micro-SR™ ingredients, branded as MicroActive® in the United States, are micronized and encapsulated using natural starches or polymers to fit the individual characteristic of each ingredient and are ideal for formulators looking to create products with greater bioavailability, sustained release and efficacy. Absorption is enhanced by carriers that assist the active ingredient to move through the intestinal wall.


From natural allergy and immune support to sports nutrition and skin beauty, Maypro is featuring four new additions to our European portfolio.
