Evolva and Cargill to collaborate on second family of ingredients


Evolva Holding SA, a global player in sustainable, fermentation-based approaches to ingredients for health, wellness and nutrition and Cargill, an international producer and marketer of food, agricultural, financial and industrial products and services have signed an agreement to co-develop a sustainable, customisable, and cost-effective fermentation production process for a second family of high-value food and beverage ingredients.

This additional collaboration between the two companies is modelled on the first partnership signed in March 2013 to develop next-generation stevia ingredients (steviol glycosides). This second family of high-value ingredients is unrelated to stevia. In the initial phase of the new collaboration, Evolva expects to deploy 5 – 7 researchers. Evolva and Cargill will share costs.

Neil Goldsmith, CEO of Evolva, said “Obviously, signing a second product collaboration agreement with Cargill—just under two years after starting our stevia collaboration with them—speaks to the confidence that both companies have about the fermentation route of production for a wide variety of functional ingredients. We are pleased that our relationship with Cargill continues to deepen.”
