The Directors believe that Trans Chem is a strong and creditable company, winning ‘Prestigious Quality Material Supplier of the Year’ awarded by the Complementary Medicines Australia (CMA) in 2016, 2019 and in 2021.

Steen Andersen, CEO of ProBiotix Health plc commented: “We are delighted to have signed this agreement with Trans Chem, which will further enhance our global reach. Although our primary strategic focus is on developing the European and North American markets, we believe that there is a significant business potential in Australia & New Zealand. Both countries have a high concentration of dietary supplement companies acting as a gateway into servicing mainland China and the Southeast Asian region, which we can now capitalise on.

“Trans Chem is a leading distributor in the region and will be responsible for selling our finished turn-key product solutions based on LPLDL® into the leading brands in the regions. The finished turn-key product solutions will be manufactured through local Australian and New Zealand contract manufacturing organisations (CMO’s), controlled by ProBiotix Health in cooperation with Trans Chem.”
