"This partnership with Ecovia Renewables is fully aligned with Seppic strategy to design, develop and market ingredients that bring strong environmental and health benefits," explained Jean-Baptiste Dellon, CEO of the Seppic Group. "Responsible innovation is at the heart of this strategy and this partnership is a significant milestone and a new success for our open innovation initiative."
Ecovia Renewables, a US-based company, has developed a ground-breaking platform technology to produce biobased ingredients through a proprietary fermentation process using renewable biomass. It will be combined with Seppic's long-standing expertise in formulation and large-scale production of high-value specialty ingredients.
"Seppic and Ecovia Renewables share a common vision of developing innovative, eco-friendly, biobased ingredients for beauty and healthcare products, and both companies recognize the evolving consumer interests and opportunities in this area," noted Jeremy Minty, CEO of Ecovia Renewables.
