FMC acquires pectin intellectual property of Vigido

PHILADELPHIA, US: FMC Corporation announced the acquisition of pectin-related intellectual property developed by Vigido AG, a subsidiary of UniPektin Ingredients AG and the former exclusive marketer of the pectin products of Pectine Italia SpA, a company whose pectin business FMC acquired last year.

The acquisition of Vigido AG’s pectin know-how and customer data significantly strengthens FMC’s pectin portfolio with expertise in marketing and R&D knowledge. Vigido AG products previously marketed under the brand name VIDOPECTINE will now be available from FMC BioPolymer.

“This acquisition enriches our expertise and capabilities in natural-based food ingredients. For our pectin business, Vigido’s pectin market and application knowledge and formulation experience complements our existing strength in manufacturing and our more than 65 years of experience in the food industry, to solidify our position in the pectin market,” said Mary T Clarke, General Manager, Food Ingredients, FMC BioPolymer.
