CARLSBAD, CALIF. — Seltzer Companies, Inc., which includes Seltzer Nutritional Technologies and Seltzer Ingredients, has been renamed Glanbia Nutritionals, Inc. and will operate under the Glanbia Nutritionals Customized Solutions brand.
“We are very pleased to announce the rebranding of our company,” said Richard Hazel, chief executive officer. “As part of the global Glanbia Group since 2006, it is only fitting that we complete the association with our parent company by undertaking this rebranding initiative. We look forward to continuing to provide our portfolio of nutritional ingredients, colors and customized micronutrient blends to manufactures of nutritional, food, beverage, human health and personal care products.”
The company hopes to create a synergy by combining the global resources of the Glanbia Group with those of the newly rebranded North American organization.
“Our global customers enjoy the benefits of four premix facilities — Glanbia’s plants in Shanghai, China, and Orsingen, Germany, in collaboration with the former Seltzer plants in Carlsbad, Calif. and Springfield, Mo.,” said Raimund Hoenes, chief operating officer for Glanbia Nutritionals Customized Solutions worldwide. “Collectively, these facilities will enable us to partner with our global customers better than ever before.”
