We want our partners to sense that difference, to sense the difference we can make to their product and their business”, says Tom Corcoran, vice president of food and nutrition for Brenntag Group “Our biggest asset, however, is our team who shares a common passion for food & nutrition. We aspire to be a living network, sharing best practices, knowledge and insights and ultimately turning trends into marketable products for our partners.”
