Maypro to leverage EEA growth and increase European-made PBIs for robust sales into AMERS and APAC markets

PURCHASE, NY, Monday, March 11, 2024 — Maypro is proud to announce its new European office near Milan in the Lombardy region of Italy.

Partly in response to Technavio’s market prediction for industry CAGR growth of 5.7% through 2027*, Maypro now has Europe-based representation that will allow the company to effectively leverage the market’s momentum to increase ingredient sales in the European Economic Area (EEA) and expand the portfolio of Europe-made proprietary branded ingredients (PBIs) for export to the Americas (AMERS) and Asia-Pacific (APAC) markets.

“This new venture will allow healthy inventory levels for vitally important ingredients thus improving lead times and the overall customer experience. In addition, it will allow full access to market changes and a comprehensive understanding of local laws and regulatory requirements,” commented Isabel Elias-Castro, President of Maypro Global Nutrition Group.

Alessandro Piccolo of ALDL Consulting is heading up the new office. “We are pleased to have partnered with Alessandro. Alessandro has over 20 years of industry experience. He has deep technical knowledge—including a master’s degree in chemistry, a strong network and, perhaps most importantly, a professional, engaging, and hard-working personality that is well aligned with Maypro’s culture,” notes Tiger Shirozu, Director of Maypro’s Global Export Division.

Maypro invites you to meet Alessandro and the rest of the Maypro team at Vitafoods Europe, the details of which are:
