Healthier food and natural product preservation

  • make food tastier more efficiently by creating and enhancing natural flavors or masking off-tastes
  • maintain gut health by providing functional probiotics, avoiding antibiotics
  • reduce the perishability of foodstuffs thanks to the use of natural bioactive antimicrobials

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