With this alliance, SUANFARMA will support Solvay to raise its existing biotechnological capabilities for natural ingredients designed for Food & Beverage and Flavors & Fragrances industries. In Cipan, our manufacturing site located in Lisbon, Portugal, we operate with a natural fermentation process under the highest standards of quality control and traceability.
This agreement, to be completed by mid-2023, is the first step of a long-term strategic alliance between both companies.
“Currently, the Nutraceutical Ingredients Division already represents 25% of our turnover and we are committed to notable growth in the coming years. With this strategic alliance SUANFARMA extends the use of its existing knowledge in fermentation process boosting at the same time its presence in natural ingredients. Of course, always under the highest quality standards, since our factories have the most recognized international certifications,” said Francisco Fernandez, CEO of SUANFARMA group.
“Cipan provides Solvay with technical knowledge on specialized fermentation processes in pharmaceuticals for food ingredients. Different types of ingredients that require shared technologies, another great example of the potential of our know-how in fermentation and our focus in processes and technologies to produce high quality products”, added Daniel Rivero, SUANFARMA’s Group Industrial Director.
SUANFARMA is committed to innovation, development, and sustainability, working on applied research that anticipates market needs, developing solutions in line with reducing environmental impact, resource consumption and healthier and more natural foods.
