The upgraded lab, to serve the growing need for application support across the food and nutrition, and pharmaceutical markets, is located in Amparo/SP, Brazil, on Rousselot’s current Peptan collagen peptides manufacturing site.
The company’s lab network also includes the global lab in Ghent’s Expertise Center in Belgium and the regional lab in Wenzhou, China.
“We are proud that we can now assist our customers in every step of their product development,” said Andréa Moura, sales and marketing director, Latin America.
“Our renewed lab in Brazil can help customers develop their own products and prototypes, by offering customized formulation solutions, as well as inspiration. With our complete range of small and pilot scale equipment, we are able to formulate food and nutrition applications like confectionery, baking and drinks, as well as measure our products’ mechanical properties in our customers’ formulations through specialized analytical equipment.”
With Rousselot’s Peptan range aimed at products that support people's mobility and beauty, and ProTake’s fortified formulation capabilities expanding to bars, powder drinks and baked foods, the lab is intended to support customers in all key applications and developments in the food and nutrition market more efficiently.
“Alongside pushing the boundaries of our collagen products, our overarching focus has always been co-creation and full formulation support. Our dedicated experts develop innovative formulations and new techniques that help us understand our ingredients’ behavior in different applications and better support our customers by constantly offering pioneering solutions,” said Claude Capdepon, global coordinator, Rousselot Application Laboratories.
“At the same time, we are dedicated in creating a strong knowledge network by sharing key learnings and findings across our labs worldwide, in order to translate those learnings across all regions and multiple fields.”
