Azuca Partners with Abercore for International Distribution

—UK-based sugar supplier, Abercore, introduces Azuca CBD products to European markets—

COLORADO (July 25, 2019)—United States-based edibles brand Azuca is going global. First started in 2018 in New York City, with expansion to Colorado last month, Azuca has partnered with sugar and sweetener distributor Abercore to take its hemp-derived CBD sugars, syrups and other products to the international stage. The partnership will concentrate its efforts in Europe, and allow Abercore to market and distribute Azuca products and the brand’s four-patent-pending TiMETM Technology to both retailers and food and beverage manufacturers.

“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Azuca. We are seeing exponential demand growth for CBD-infused ingredients and we are convinced that Azuca’s fast acting TiMETM Technology will revolutionize the CBD edibles space,” said Luca Galbiati, Director at Abercore.

Short for Thermodynamic individual Molecular Encapsulation, Azuca’s TiMETM Technology encapsulates individual cannabinoid molecules to make them more “water friendly,” resulting in a fast-acting, highly bioavailable product. Current Azuca CBD products include simple syrup, Valrhona dark chocolate coins and organic turbinado sugar in bulk. Azuca CBD Flakes are available for commercial agreements and offer a non-sugar TiMETM Technology application.

“Partnering with Abercore was a natural fit. Two of Azuca’s pioneering products—namely our infused sugar and simple syrup—are a seamless tie-in to Abercore’s core focus of supplying thoughtfully sourced sugars and sweeteners throughout Europe,” said Azuca President and Chief Executive Officer, Kim Rael. “The market for CBD is continuing to grow both domestically and globally, and we take great pride in being an active player by setting the tone for international expansion as the space evolves. We are excited to grow Azuca’s footprint in partnership with Abercore.”
