Barentz names Mike Emrich as president of its human nutrition vertical
Barentz has appointed Mike Emrich as president of its newly formed North American human nutrition vertical.
Emrich brings more than 30 years of industry and leadership experience, serving in both commercial and technical roles in the North American food and beverage ingredients market. He most recently acted as president of Barentz Canada.
“I want to congratulate Mike on his new role within our organization,” commented Mike McKenna, president & COO of Barentz North America. “We’ve had the luxury of working with Mike as a member of our leadership team for a couple of years now, and as we accelerate our investments in our human nutrition team, he was the ideal leader for the business. This market has historically performed very well and represents an attractive growth opportunity for us. We look forward to Mike and our entire team executing on our strategy.”
In conjunction with the establishment of the North American human nutrition vertical, Ingredients, Inc., has been merged with Barentz North America, LLC. Headquartered in Buffalo Grove, Ill., Ingredients, Inc., was acquired by Barentz in May 2020. It is a provider of high-quality ingredient solutions. Through the combination of these businesses, Barentz’s human nutrition vertical boasts coast-to-coast coverage across North America and an expansive specialty ingredients and additives portfolio.
