In other news, DKSH reported increasing demand from customers for its Supplier Agreement Program (SAPA), a service designed to ensure that suppliers understand the needs of customers and that they are able to deliver on these requirements.

Primary criteria are ensuring quality, product purity and worldwide on-spec delivery, according to the company.
