Biosyntia, a biotech company focused on the development of fermentation processes for select small molecules, has entered into a multi-year collaboration with Givaudan, a supplier of flavours, taste, functional and nutritional solutions. Through the collaboration, Givaudan will use Biosyntia’s technology platform to develop a sustainable flavour ingredient.
Biosyntia’s fermentation processes and experience are designed to ensure a consistent and dependable supply of ingredients with reduced environmental impact.
Martin Plambech, CEO of Biosyntia, said: “We are extremely proud that market leading Givaudan chose us and our technology to bring novel products to life. This collaboration will enable Givaudan to launch a flavour ingredient that is both natural and sustainable, helping to make their product stand out in a very competitive field,” Martin Plambech said.
Fabio Campanile, Givaudan’s Global Head of Science & Technology, Taste & Wellbeing said: “Biosyntia’s unique technology platform enables the development of natural materials that are differentiated, consistent, and sustainable. This collaboration demonstrates our commitment to creating the future of food in a sustainable way with innovation partners who have a similar vision. We’re excited to see this relationship come to life.”
Last year, Biosyntia announced it developed a method to produce biotin through fermentation as an alternative to highly polluting chemical-based processes. It subsequently thereby commercialised its first ingredient for use within cosmetic applications, dietary supplements, food and beverage fortification as well as animal feed.
“For me and the rest of the team at Biosyntia, this collaboration is truly a proof of our world-class results stemming from our unique technology platform and un-matchable know-how. At the same time, the agreement with Givaudan underscores the fact that Biosyntia is a world-leading company within the development of fermentation processes of select ingredients” Martin Plambech said.
