Commercial due diligence is a service provided by Allchemix, provided the scope of such project is reasonably limited and timing does not exceed 90 days.


What makes Allchemix valuable ? 

A combination of data and industry experience, as well as understanding of the industry network, are fundamental to comprehend this changing, dynamic F&F market.

Many F&F ingredients are derivatives from various streams, often existing as  by-products from other markets.

Turbulences in other markets, consolidations, and other factors lead to volatility in F&F ingredients. Companies producing or using F&F ingredients need to better understand and predict availability of ingredients.

After almost 30 years in this industry, Alain Frix started his own company Allchemix in January 2020 . His passion for this industry, long experience combined with strong network and business friendships, are the basics to connect many questions with their solutions. 

Allchemix can help you better understand our F&F industry, provide guidance on your business plans, support commercial development, support access to raw material, and work on your future in connecting the right people and the right dots.
