Pure biology, better food and beverages

With a pure dedication to biology, we're the right partner to help you make food and beverages even better.

We need a transformation

By 2050, we’ll need to feed two billion more people. Yet feeding the current global population is already overstretching the earth’s resources. At the same time, food producers face ever-changing consumer demands, a challenging economic climate and increased legislative requirements.

It’s time for a transformation in how we cultivate, produce and consume food.

Let’s bring biology back

Food is biology. It’s the wheat enzymes that give bread a golden crust. And it’s the cultures that enable the thousands of fermented cheeses, meats and wines that are part of our rich global tapestry of food.

Biology holds the answers to many of the challenges faced by food producers and our planet. Yet from synthetic fertilizers to artificial preservatives, we often overlook biology as we strive to make food better.

It’s time to bring it back.

Purely dedicated to biology

At Novonesis, we’re solely focused on biology. For more than a century we’ve been replicating, improving and accelerating its power in biological solutions, or biosolutions.

Our biosolutions are tiny but mighty enzymes and microbes that make a broad range of food and beverages better. They help you get more from less and make your processes more sustainable and efficient. They enable great taste, texture and appearance with simpler, shorter labels. They extend shelf life, improve nutritional profiles and deliver novel health benefits. They also unlock new, more sustainable, protein sources. Our biosolutions even help to maintain the authenticity and improve the sustainability of established proteins. And we’re only getting started.
