DAVIS, US: Marrone Bio Innovations and DSM Food Specialties have signed a collaborative agreement involving early stage research of several biological active ingredients. Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc is a leading global provider of bio-based pest management and plant health products and DSM Food Specialties BV is a Netherlands-based manufacturer of specialty ingredients for international food and beverage industries.

The agreement’s goal is to unlock the full potential of biological active ingredients to improve the critical end points - crop production and food safety - of the food supply chain. Marrone Bio Innovations and DSM will exchange microorganisms from their libraries in order for their respective research teams to screen for biological activity in their specific areas of interest. For DSM, its area of interest is applications for its food ingredients business and for Marrone Bio Innovations, its interest is in crop protection and plant health areas.

“This agreement takes advantage of each company’s strength in its core competencies. DSM Food Specialties is a world leader in fermentation and enzyme technology and is the ideal partner for exploring new applications of microbial strains for food safety and other food ingredient applications. Conversely, Marrone Bio Innovations has an industry-leading screening and development process to identify and commercialize candidates for crop protection and plant health applications. I believe we can expect viable development candidates to emerge from our collective research,” said Dr Alison Stewart, Sr Vice President, Research & Development and Chief Technology Officer, Marrone Bio Innovations.
