Cypress’s range includes SelenoExcell high-selenium yeast, its flagship ingredient, and other organic minerals and mineral-fortified yeasts.
Selenium plays a vital role in the body's natural defence system and in many cases is a key nutrient for proper body function and can be used across a number of applications, including dietary supplements.
The two companies have worked together since 2013, when Connell Brothers took on Cypress’s distribution in some Asia-Pacific markets including Australia and Vietnam.
Celebrating the announcement, Cypress’s export chief and Connell Brothers’ chief executive both singled out the region’s expanding market for nutrition.
"This cooperation further expands our partnership with Cypress and together, we help meet the ever growing demand for health and wellness products,” Connell’s Alex Grantz said in a statement.
