Our focus in Food & Beverage

In Food & Beverage, we develop sustainable solutions at the intersection of taste, texture, and health, supporting the availability of diets that are healthy for people as well as the planet without compromising on taste.

As a leading global supplier of food ingredients, including yeasts, enzymes, cultures, bio-preservatives, hydrocolloids, specialty proteins, and sugar alternatives, we help our customers satisfy the unique tastes and nutritional needs of consumers while simultaneously reducing demands on the planet’s finite resources and the industry’s environmental footprint. By making diets healthier and more sustainable, and giving increasing numbers of people access to affordable, quality food, we address the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2 (Zero Hunger), 3 (Good Health and Well-Being) and 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production).

We apply more than 150 years of bioscience and fermentation expertise alongside a unique and extensive portfolio of solutions and deep application knowhow to provide a fully integrated offering. By anticipating and rapidly adapting to evolving consumer needs and expectations, such as the growing interest in natural and clean label products or flexitarianism, we help our customers develop and deliver on-trend, differentiating products fast.

Powered by close customer proximity and the ability to deliver products that are fully tailored to specific local market requirements, we strive to ensure customers and consumers do not need to choose between food that is delicious, nutritious, or sustainable. They can enjoy it all.
