PARSIPPANY, N.J., Oct. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leading functional ingredients manufacturer, BENEO, has announced a global price increase of 5% on average on its functional fibers, inulin and oligofructose, for food and feed applications.

The change is set to be implemented from 1st January 2020. Due to rising operational costs and a price erosion since 2011, a price correction is needed to ensure BENEO remains a reliable and credible industry partner.

Derived from chicory root, inulin and oligofructose are two of the very few clinically proven plant-based prebiotic fibers. A comprehensive body of high quality scientific studies (in excess of 150) confirms the health benefits of BENEO’s chicory root fibers.
