In its core, Corbion is a strong sustainable ingredient solutions company in food and biochemicals. Our food ingredients provide safe and healthy food for a growing population, while reducing food waste. Our biochemical ingredients provide solutions based on renewable materials and resource efficient processes. At the same time, we build new business platforms in biotechnology based on our fermentation expertise.

Our strategy addresses the global megatrends of population growth, changing values, climate change & resource scarcity and food security. With our 80 years of experience and knowledge in lactic acid fermentation, protected by IP and proprietary knowledge, we are well positioned to alleviate the impact of these trends with our biobased solutions.

Our Ingredients Solutions business unit comprises our food- and biochemical businesses. 

Food ingredients are an important part of our company’s portfolio. We are striving to extend our leadership position by providing biobased food ingredients that help manufacturers keeping food fresh and safe while reducing waste and bringing flexibility to the value chain.

In biochemicals, we will continue to grow based on our outstanding innovation in replacing fossil-based chemicals. We are involved in an extensive value chain and increasingly work with carefully selected partners with complementary technologies or competencies.

Our Innovation Platforms business unit creates new biotechnology business platforms. By using our own core technologies, stand-alone or combined with our partners' technologies, we drive growth via a disciplined stage-gate investment approach.

Our 50/50 joint venture with Total for the production and marketing of polylactic acid bioplastic (PLA) is part of this business unit. Our high-performance PLA resin can be used to make a bioplastic for a wide range of applications, ranging from (degradable) food packaging to touchscreen computers and durable automotive components.

Innovation Platforms also comprises our Algae Ingredients business and the succinic acid joint venture with BASF (Succinity). Next to these venture included in this business unit are our longer-term development programs such as FDCA, a biobased building block with unique properties in (bio)polymers and a potential replacement for purified terephthalic acid (PTA), our gypsum-free lactic acid production process, and use of alternative feedstocks (lignocellulosic biomass, agricultural residues, waste) to make lactic acid...
