Givaudan and Novozymes have formed a research partnership to develop innovative ingredients and technologies.
The collaboration will see the companies combine their capabilities and solutions and work together on projects in the areas of food and cleaning.
“We are very excited to initiate this strategic partnership with Novozymes, a much-respected company that has an impressive heritage and research platform in biological solutions,” said Givaudan CEO, Gilles Andrier.
“Together we have the potential to grow with our respective customers while increasing our positive impact on the world with products consumers feel good about, and that preserve our planet.”
Novozymes offers a range of biological solutions, including enzymes and microorganisms, for industrial applications spanning areas such as wastewater treatment, agriculture, and the production of everyday household products.
Earlier this year, Novozymes acquired PrecisionBiotics Group, an Ireland-based company that has developed a portfolio of human-origin probiotic strains, targeting different areas including gut health.
Commenting on the collaboration with Givaudan, Novozymes president and CEO Ester Baiget said: “Our companies share purpose and values in many aspects, and we are very excited to be in this partnership with Givaudan, the world leader within taste and fragrances.
“By working together, we can faster develop consumer solutions in areas such as food and cleaning to the benefit of people’s lives and the world we live in.”
Novozymes recently teamed up with Firmenich to launch a natural sugar reduction solution for dairy products such as yogurt.
