Food Ingredient Solutions for Today’s Supply Chain Challenges

Alongside most industries in today’s world, food and beverage companies have faced ongoing supply chain challenges since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Truthfully, the pandemic exacerbated problems we already understood to exist within the industry. We don’t expect supply chain issues to improve soon, and that’s why we’ve put a renewed focus and emphasis on creative ways to source, refine, and create food ingredients.  Ensuring supply security to our customers is of the utmost importance to Tilley and leveraging our key partnerships has been critical to supply continuity and contingency plans.

As a part of our forward-thinking mission to position ourselves and our customers ahead of the curve, acquiring Ingredients Solutions, Inc. has greatly expanded our agility in these trying times.

Learn how, with our recent acquisition of ISI, we’ll continue to support your business in the years to come.

Expanded Ingredient Warehouse Availability

ISI operates two warehousing facilities to serve its North American customer base- located in Hazelwood, Missouri, and Brampton, Ontario. Both locations offer strategic distribution points for fast, reliable delivery of the ingredients our customers need to keep production running smoothly.

Technical Support Services & Expanded Food Ingredient Solutions

Working out of our Research and Development facility in Waldo, Maine, ISI’s laboratory services can help identify effective ingredient solutions to fill gaps created by supply chain shortages. Whether our customers are facing a short-term shortage or looking for a better, more efficient substitute for the future, ISI’s enriched application experience and research aims to partner with customers in finding a solution to these challenges.  Feel free to reach out for support with any of the product lines included below as well as innovative ideas:

Preparing for Continued Ingredient Supply Chain Problems

Even as we move into the second full COVID-19 winter, supply chain issues have impacted economies around the world. Each region may have unique challenges, but the interconnected nature of today’s global economy has an undeniable butterfly effect. In addition to rising food prices, shortages of pharmaceutical ingredients have even caused concerns about national security. That’s why we work with the most reputable suppliers from around the world to link our customers with the right product, on time and on-demand.
