Kaiseraugst, CH, 21 May 2014 10:15 CEST

DSM Nutritional Products Ltd. - a division of Royal DSM N.V., the global life sciences and material sciences company - and the natural ingredients company Isobionics B.V. announced today an exclusive partnership to distribute Valencene and Nootkatone grades to the flavor and fragrances market.

The current supply chain of many natural compounds is unstable and characterized by high volatility regarding availability, quality and pricing. With our proprietary fermentation technology, which is similar to brewing beer, we create the stability and reliability of supply that the market expects. I am pleased with the worldwide distribution capabilities and know-how of DSM’s Aroma Ingredients Business and confident about the success of our cooperation,” said Toine Janssen, CEO and founder of Isobionics.

Arnold Gloor, Senior Director Aroma Ingredients of DSM Nutritional Products, commented, “We are pleased to extend our portfolio with exciting new aroma ingredients such as Valencene and Nootkatone, produced through an innovative fermentation technology by Isobionics to bring stability into the market place.”


Isobionics B.V. is a global company, developing, producing and selling a range of natural products for the Flavor & Fragrance (F&F) and Agrochemical market. Isobionics was the first company in the world who introduced ValencenePure™ which uses a proprietary fermentation technology (“Similar to brewing beer”). Many natural compounds today are seasonally harvested. Therefore product availability, quality and price are varying and unpredictable. Isobionics’ products distinguish themselves by unlimited and guaranteed availability, constant quality, high purity, and a low cost price. Moreover, the products are sustainable and environmentally friendly. More information can be found at
