    Biosolutions for human health

    People today want to be in control of their health at every life stage. And their needs are more complex and expectations higher than ever.

    With our scientifically-researched and clinically-tested biosolutions for a stronger body and mind, they can navigate to better lifelong health.

    Our portfolio is manufactured at scale in-house and includes prebiotics, probiotics, enzymes, novel vitamins, proteins and many other biosolutions to help you meet people’s complex needs.

    Biosolutions for food and beverages

    By 2050, we’ll need to feed two billion more people. At the same time, food producers face ever-changing consumer demands, a challenging economic climate and increased legislative requirements. 

    Our biosolutions help get more from less and make processes more sustainable and efficient. They enable great taste, texture and appearance with simpler, shorter labels. 

    They also extend shelf life, improve nutritional profiles and deliver novel health benefits. And they unlock new, more sustainable, protein sources.

  • BioAg

    Biosolutions for planetary health

    Innovative planetary health biosolutions improve the health of our planet.

    They reduce energy, chemical and water usage, help get more output from fewer raw materials and reduce waste in agriculture and across a wide range of industries.

    Working closely with you, we find biosolutions that can optimize your production and deliver products with new benefits and claims. All while helping to meet the needs of your customers, consumers and our planet.
