Extend your shelf life

Avoiding food waste, naturally

Consumers are increasingly searching out foods with natural ingredients, that stay fresher for longer – and avoid unnecessary food waste. Our family of biopreservatives help you meet that need by replacing artificial preservatives and extending shelf life across a wide range of applications, including dairy, baked goods and beverages.  

These days, consumers are not just checking food labels for ingredients. According to the Food & Health Survey 2016, more than 70% of consumers check expiry dates in the supermarket. It means that avoiding spoilage is even more important than ever – and that’s what we’ll help you achieve with our family of biopreservatives, based on decades of microbiology and fermentation expertise.
