Our Story

Nourishing Innovation. Growing Opportunity.

Ground­ed in sci­ence and dis­cov­ery, we are com­mit­ted to pos­i­tive­ly impact the world’s health and well-being. Across cat­e­gories, our tech­nol­o­gy helps deliv­er prod­ucts to con­sumers as intend­ed, stay­ing fresh and pro­tect­ed through­out the sup­ply chain. With the abil­i­ty to tar­get appli­ca­tion, our solu­tions cre­ate new oppor­tu­ni­ties and expand mar­kets while using few­er nat­ur­al resources and less­en­ing neg­a­tive envi­ron­men­tal impacts. With 20 years of expe­ri­ence focused on fresh­ness, 241 patents filed around the world and glob­al­ly rec­og­nized experts in cyclodex­trin and 1‑MCP (1‑methylcyclopropene) on our team, we are unique­ly posi­tioned to cre­ate sig­nif­i­cant val­ue while pro­vid­ing nour­ish­ment to the glob­al com­mu­ni­ty.
