Chr. Hansen inaugurates state-of-the-art colours R&D centre

Chr. Hansen Natural Colors has inaugurated its state-of-the-art R&D centre in Montpellier, France as part of wider focus on innovative and natural solutions.

The expanded and completely renovated R&D facilities in Montpellier will strengthen the company’s scope to develop innovative and natural solutions in close collaboration with customers.

All is now set in place for a bright future for Chr. Hansen Natural Colors, which is expected to be acquired – subject to regulatory clearance – next year by global investment organisation, EQT.

“We are ramping up our R&D capabilities in pigment, formulation and application expertise. Also, we are accelerating our breeding programs and new technologies to secure sustainable and high-quality natural sources,” said Luc Ganivet, vice president, head of innovation and application.

“More stable formulations and even new colours like blue and green will now be within our reach. This new centre will be a magnet to the brightest talents in the industry and will help us to remain a leading force.

“Montpellier lies in the heart of an exciting food science hub, with several universities and institutions renowned for their profound scientific expertise.”
