Montvale, New Jersey (22 February, 2024) –

Balchem, a global manufacturer of specialty ingredients for human nutrition and health (HNH), and leading US supplement distributor Stauber Performance Ingredients, jointly announce a new distribution partnership in USA and Canada. Building on their longstanding relationship, Balchem has recently appointed the distributor as the Preferred Supplier for its Albion® Minerals, OptiMSM®, VitaCholine® and VitaShure® brands.

The synergistic collaboration is poised to provide added value through a deep understanding of the market needs and an extensive knowledge of blends, while also enabling both companies to meet the demand for additional support and customized solutions.

This will be pivotal in further improving reach and operational efficiency, across the USA and Canada.

“As our relationship with Balchem continues to grow, we are honored to be chosen as the Preferred Supplier for the USA and Canada for Albion® Minerals, OptiMSM®, VitaCholine® and VitaShure®. Our partnership with the company has deepened over the years, guided by our shared commitment to quality products and excellent service.
