Adds Doron Safrai, CEO of Solabia-Algatech Nutrition: “We are excited about the new branding, which is an important milestone in the integration and synergy of the two companies, and pleased that we can now offer a larger variety of products supporting health and well-being to all of our customers worldwide.”
As part of the integration, the two companies’ process of rebranding includes adding Algatech’s name to the Solabia logo to preserve the look and feel of Solabia group whilst emphasising Algatech’s position as a unique and reputable player in the dietary and supplement markets.
