Global challenges are queuing up. One key solution might be smaller than you think - microscopic even.  

Nevertheless, it holds the answer to solving multiple challenges at the same time. And there is so much left to discover. 


Everything we do is driven by three commitments

Accelerating towards a climate- neutral society

55 billion tonnes. That’s what our combined CO2 equivalent emissions come to in just one year. Together with our customers, we’re lowering emissions in industry and food production. We’re also removing fossil-based ingredients from everyday products and capturing carbon. All to protect the planet we love.

Transforming food systems

9.7 billion people will need food in 2050. That means we need to rethink food production from field to fork. With biosolutions, our customers are growing more per acre and ensuring better quality, more nutritious food. They’re generating less food waste and serving up plant-based and alternative proteins. This is the recipe that can help us meet our future needs.

Enabling healthier lives

In supermarkets and health stores around the world, more and more people are looking for ways to improve their wellbeing and health. Our biosolutions provide supplements for better gut health. They also make lower-sugar, higher-fiber dairy possible. And they lead to healthier baked goods. These are just some of the ways they enable healthier lives.

Why we should work together

Real-world problems solved...

Working closely with customers across more than 30 industries, we gain expert insights into real-world problems. With a co-creation mindset, we’re constantly translating those insights into relevant biosolutions. These solve problems across 140 countries and are often adapted to local conditions based on your local needs.


...with our unparalleled biotech toolbox...

Our thousands of experts draw on the enzymes, fermented proteins and microorganisms in our toolbox. In their search for insights-based biosolutions, they harness cutting-edge technologies such as gene-reading and handling, strain constructions and high-throughput screening.


...and ability to produce and deliver at scale

The journey from your needs to our lab to global scale is a fast and efficient one, thanks to our unique fermentation, production and supply-chain capabilities. These span the globe, helping to ensure that we always deliver high-quality products to you at cost-effective, commercial scale.
