Industrial biotechnology

For over a century, we’ve been pioneers in our industry, driven by our curiosity and drive to innovate. We’ve also long been convinced of the infinite potential of yeasts, yeast derivatives and other micro-organisms to protect health, well-being and the planet. We are convinced that offering a more sustainable world to future generations requires organizations around the globe to commit to corporate social responsibility. At Lesaffre, we contribute to this goal every day by tapping into our expertise in fermentation solutions and innovating in the field of biotechnologies. With the utmost respect for the environment, we constantly seek out new ways to preserve natural resources and generate new yeast strains capable of supporting the boom in biofuels and bio-based products. With equal concern for living beings, we develop lines of cellular nutrients that improve the health and wellness of humans and animals.

A world key player in fermentation

Lesaffre is recognized the world over for our proven expertise in fermentation. As we look towards a greener future, we are focusing on developing cutting-edge fermentation solutions to meet growing expectations in the fuel ethanol and biosourced chemical industries. These solutions can help reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and lower our dependence on fossil resources. We also dedicate ourselves to the development of efficient yeast-based nutrients that improve the growth and productivity of microorganisms and animal cells, and that directly contribute to enhancing life on this planet for all living creatures.

In the spirit of innovation

As innovators, we design fermentation-based alternatives to petro-based molecules that help industrial manufacturers reduce their environmental footprint. At the same time, we focus on developing efficient yeast-based nutrients to generate a range of products including antibiotics, biological diagnostic tests, probiotics, renewable chemicals and biocontrol productions. Our vast and innovative product portfolio takes us one step closer towards our ultimate goal: to better protect and nourish the planet in an environmentally friendly manner.
