AlgaeIndustryMagazine.com

Previously the Chief Commercial Officer of Solix Algredients, Charlie Bowman has been appointed Managing Director of the new company.

BGG and Solix Algredients, Inc. have joined forces to form a new company supplying functional ingredients sourced from nature to the nutrition, food/beverage, personal care and feed markets.

The new company’s portfolio of natural extract ingredients originates from three sectors: algae, fruits and plants. The extensive product range features patented technologies and ingredients with significant, defined consumer benefits. The portfolio includes natural astaxanthin, DHA omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin E tocotrienols, apple polyphenols and fruit/berry extracts.

Headquartered in Fort Collins, Colorado, the new company consolidates BGG, Algae Health Sciences and Solix Algredients into one business with global operating responsibility. Next steps include a Colorado-based, production-scale facility for supercritical carbon dioxide extraction of natural astaxanthin and other products.

New company Co-Chairman Austin Maguire was previously President and Chief Executive Officer of Solix Algredients.

“When I founded BGG, my goal was to make it easier for consumers to manage their personal health and wellness,” said Chunhua Li, who will be Co-Chairman of the new company. “I am thrilled that our new company strengthens our leadership role in natural antioxidants while expanding our capabilities into new markets and applications.”

Charlie Bowman has been appointed Managing Director of the new company. Previously the Chief Commercial Officer of Solix Algredients, he brings extensive international and functional ingredient expertise in biotechnology, microalgae and hydrocolloids from leadership roles at CP Kelco, Solazyme, and Cargill.

“Our portfolio of natural extract, functional ingredients is well-aligned with current and emerging consumer demand. We are strongly positioned to support our global customers’ business and marketing strategies, and are excited to work together,” said Mr. Bowman.

Austin Maguire has also been appointed Co-Chairman of the new company. Previously President and Chief Executive Officer of Solix Algredients, Mr. Maguire was President of Calera Corporation and earlier was President of Tate & Lyle Sucralose, where he led the global SPLENDA® Sucralose sweetener business.
