LONDON (ICIS)--Univar has entered into an agreement with National Starch to distribute its specialty starches in Turkey, the global chemicals distributor said on Wednesday.

The deal broadens a 20-year partnership between the two companies that covers the UK, Ireland, Iberia, and the Nordic region, Univar said, without disclosing financial details.
