IFF, Evolva collaborate for natural vanillin

NEW YORK, US: International Flavors & Fragrances Inc (IFF) and Evolva Holding SA, Reinach, Switzerland, a biosynthesis technology expert, have entered into pre-production phase to develop and scale-up, via a third party, natural vanillin for commercial application through a cost-effective, natural and sustainable route. The two companies are working to confirm scalability and yield targets through a yeast-based fermentation route during the pre-manufacturing phase.

“We are very excited about our collaboration with Evolva, an expert in the biotechnology field, on the development of a key flavoring ingredient that is used in IFF flavors and the potential to deliver a market product with industry significance that is operationally scalable. If the scale-up is successful, this innovative solution should provide a sustainable source for what has been a volatile raw material and should provide IFF customers with unique products,” said Mark Dewis, Vice President, R&D, IFF.
