Corbion is ideally positioned to support the United Nations' goal of improving health and wellbeing. For us, it takes five forms:
We aim to create a healthy, safe, and environmentally friendly workplace. We will work safely and without adverse environmental or communal impact, and our open, transparent culture helps us continuously improve safety and environmental performance.
Our fortification expertise enables us to tackle common health issues like mineral deficiencies or osteoporosis. Our solutions for calcium fortification in beverages are a case in point. Studies in children and adolescents have shown that supplementation with calcium, dairy calcium-enriched foods, or milk enhances the rate of bone mineral acquisition.
Omega-3 DHA is a well-researched contributor to good heart health. AlgaPrime™ DHA, derived from algae, is a clean, sustainable source of these long chain fatty acids, which help enhance seafood's nutritional value. It is fed to Kvarøy Arctic™ Atlantic salmon, contributing to its inclusion in the American Heart Association's Heart-Check Food Certification Program.
Resorbable, biodegradable orthopedic devices benefit patients, healthcare systems, and the planet. Advanced orthopedic implants containing our biobased materials are treating musculoskeletal injuries in areas like sports medicine, trauma, and spinal surgery. Their use reduces the need for follow-up surgery and makes healthcare more affordable.
Our antimicrobial solutions are ideal for developing safe, environmentally friendly home and personal care products including hand soaps, hand sanitizers, and body washes. Our products are antiviral, non-toxic, and non-sensitizing, yet powerful and effective. Sanitizing hand gel and hand soap containing PURAC® Sanilac inactivated 99.9% of coronavirus particles after just one minute of contact time.
