Olon Group and Chromologics collaborate to manufacture natural colours

Published: 29-May-2024

The partnership will allow Chromologics to manufacture its natural colours for food and beverages with Olon Group's fermentation infrastructure

Olon Group, a global company specialising in food biomanufacturing and development and Chromologics, a Danish biotech company focusing on the production of innovative natural food colours, has partnered to leverage Olon’s vast fermentation infrastructure to manufacture Chromologics products.

Olon and Chromologics established this partnership to leverage Olon’s fermentation sites across Italy.

Chromologics have begun selling a natural red colour, which will enable food manufacturers in the US and EU to replace synthetic or unstable natural colours. 

Olon is playing a pivotal role as a CDMO for scaling Chromologics biomanufacturing processes, focusing on natural colours for use in the
food and beverage market.

Andrea Conforto, VP of CDMO for Olon Biotech, commented: “Olon Biotech has more than 50 years of experience providing high-quality fermentation manufacturing services. Our global footprint led us to be one of the biggest companies producing via microbial fermentation for third parties in Europe, thanks to our fermenter's sizes and total fermentation capacity of 5,000m³. In the last three years, we have invested over EUR €130m in our Biotech Centres. The investments have generated a significant increase of our capacity further than making our process more sustainable. We are truly happy that this effort is driving the success of such a promising project, in partnership with Chromologics”.

“It has been important for Chromologics to find a CDMO that can secure the quality of our final product and quickly scale our production capacity to address the global market for natural colors. Olon has met these requirements and has shown dedication and professionalism when implementing our novel technology.“ Said COO of Chromologics Karsten Dinesen.
