Puratos has acquired Belgian probiotics company THT, as it looks to accelerate developments in gut health.
THT manufactures microbiological mass for the food industry and works with over 30 probiotic strains with varied applications, including bifidobacterium, enterococcus and lactobacillus.
The company provides probiotics in bulk or as finished products. Other specific services the business offers include personalised product development, technical support and quality evaluation assistance.
Pierre Tossut, CEO at Puratos, commented: “Through the acquisition of THT and its probiotics business, Puratos reaffirms its commitment to strongly invest in the scientific knowledge of gut health and the discovery of new powerful ingredients that improve the health and wellbeing of people everywhere.”
Puratos’ goal is to bring to the market more innovative solutions with gut health benefits, and turn bread into an everyday source of the nourishment the gut needs.
The acquisition has been agreed for an undisclosed sum.
