HealthTech Bioactives (HTBA) the leading innovator in polyphenol and vitamin B12 solutions for human and animal health and nutrition, has announced a new partnership with Abolis Biotechnologies for the production of sustainable, valuable polyphenols. This latest collaboration between the two companies encompasses the development of new microbial strains and aims to address challenges relating to the supply of high-quality polyphenols, driving innovation in this fast-growing segment.

At a time of increasing interest in the potential of polyphenols for both human and animal health, this latest venture between HTBA and Abolis marks an important step in the development of solvent-free, fermentation-based production methods for these in-demand ingredients.

In its initial phase, the partnership will focus on developing two high-value molecules which currently experience limited sourcing availability. Upon the successful completion of this stage, the established protocols will be applied to up to eight additional molecules with the aim of similarly optimising their development pipeline. The project’s overall goals are to increase and secure polyphenol manufacturing capacities and enable reduced costs compared to traditional extraction methods.

Said Alexandre Valls-Coma, CEO, HTBA: “Our companies have been working successfully together since 2021 and we are still amazed by the Abolis team, whose values align with our own. We are delighted to announce this new phase of our partnership and truly believe that it will take polyphenols to the next level and create to more value for our customers.”

Added Cyrille Pauthenier, co-founder and CEO of Abolis: “We are thrilled to contribute to HTBA’s growth through this strategic collaboration. Abolis has a proven track record in microbial strain development for polyphenol products, while HTBA brings its extensive global market knowledge to identify innovative applications for our solutions. This partnership is therefore a perfect match for our complementary expertise.”  For more visit htba.com
