  • make food tastier more efficiently by creating and enhancing natural flavours or masking off-tastes,
  • support gut health in humans and animals by providing functional probiotics

  • reduce food waste and maintain freshness of foodstuffs thanks to the use of natural bioactive antimicrobials

We provide cost-effective innovations from hit identification to production, scale-up and supply.
