On April 28, 2016, Firmenich was the sole sponsor and co-organizer of a symposium in Norway that highlighted the latest science and research around the health benefits from marine products and peptides, bringing together more than 100 scientists in Norway.
Actives continue to play an important role in F&F ingredient formulations in both cosmetics, and food and beverage products. Consumers are not only looking for healthy and sustainably-sourced products, but also products with multiple capabilities. As a nutritional active, marine peptides provide an array of benefits, including improved satiety and muscle growth recovery.
“We have entered a new era in the world of food and beverages where innovation and foresight are required more than ever to meet the needs of our customers,” said Chris Millington, president of the flavor division. "We are committed to putting our innovation to work so that sustainable sources of protein, including bio marine ingredients, can play an important role in helping our customers meet the growing demand for health and wellness products.”
