As of February 2019 Betco and Brenntag have partnered to handle Cargill’s distribution business in Ireland.



Betco has been agent for Cargill since 2002 and their Irish distributor since 2010. We handle the interests of three Cargill business units namely

  • Industrial Starch
  • Sweeteners
  • Texturising solutions.

We have access to their European technical centres and their application specialists.




Since Betco became a distributor we have used facilities operated by Norbert-Dentressangle(NDO) in Finglas in Dublin. NDO are always on the ball in terms of stock levels, quality control and providing the right conditions for Shelf life requirements.



Since the inception of Betco, we have used Mckeefrys as our first choice for transport. McKeefrys specialise in bulk liquid and powder transportation. For over twenty years they have carried glucose into Ireland on our behalf. They are certainly the transport company that will go the extra mile!
