RFI Ingredients LLC, a privately held developer and manufacturer of proprietary natural ingredients and formulas for the food, beverage and dietary supplement industries, has recently opened a sales office in the United Kingdom. Headed by Andrew Wainwright, RFI Europe will be based in Staffordshire, U.K., and will target European markets.
