Nestlé has entered into a partnership with Corbion to develop the next generation of microalgae-based ingredients, enabling the companies to deliver sustainable, tasty and nutritious plant-based products.

The agreement will combine Corbion’s microalgae and fermentation capabilities with Nestlé’s expertise in the development of plant-based products.

The aim of the joint development agreement is to establish a platform for the production and commercialization of algae-based ingredients rich in protein and micronutrients. The research will work to further develop the functionality, taste, and nutritional profile for use in different types of products.

Stefan Palzer, Nestlé Chief Technology Officer said, “We are actively exploring the use of microalgae as an alternative protein and micronutrient source for exciting plant-based products. Through the partnership with Corbion we will be able to use great-tasting, nutritious microalgae-based ingredients to innovate across our different product categories.”

By combining Corbion’s microalgae and fermentation capabilities with Nestlé’s expertise in the development of plant-based products, the two companies aim to produce and commercialize microalgae-based ingredients rich in protein and micronutrients. They will collaborate to improve the functionality, taste and nutritional profile for usage in different types of products.

Nestlé’s plant-based portfolio currently includes various beverages such as almond-, coconut- and oat-based creamers and coffee mixes, non-dairy ice cream, as well as a range of pea and soy-based meat alternatives and prepared dishes.

“We are excited to partner with Nestlé to develop the next generation of algae-based ingredients,” said Marc den Hartog, Executive Vice President Innovation Platforms at Corbion. “Corbion has already demonstrated the value of algae in several high-value food and feed applications. This new protein partnership with Nestlé has the potential to open important avenues for algae-based products into large global markets.”

Based in the Netherlands, Corbion is a global market leader in functional enzyme blends, minerals, vitamins and algae ingredients. Corbion owns the assets of microalgae-based food ingredient company TerraVia (formerly Solazyme) which it purchased for $20 million in September 2017.
