Inspired by nature, EVIAGENICS develops Natural Products and Solutions issued from white and blue biotechnology or Bio-industry for the Nutrition and Personal Care markets.
Initially created around white biotechnology with a strong technical knowledge around Enzymes and Yeast, EVIAGENICS developed and patented a unique technology called RIVER (Rapid In Vivo Evolution by Recombination) for efficient pathway engineering in yeast. This technology uses the cell recombination machinery to rapidly assemble and evolve metabolic pathways directly in production cells. The generated biodiversity can be quickly screened for improved properties. EVIAGENICS technology offers a differentiated tool box to generate and improve production cells for numerous compounds. EVIAGENICS patented a serie of innovative pathways allowing production of Flavonoids & Aromatic compounds for anti-oxidants, colorant, anti-microbial and organoleptic benefits.
Between 2014 and 2015, EVIAGENICS concluded a first transaction with a large industrial group for its technology and patent related to the production of Vanillin using yeast as a cellular factory.
Over the same period, EVIAGENICS expanded into Blue Biotechnology and Bio-industry, developing its expertise in the field of seaweed extracts .
Potential for seaweed extracts is huge and seaweed is a natural and sustainable resource that can be expanded, with adequate technics, with no environmental impact . As a matter of fact, Seaweed consumes CO2 when growing. Seaweed might be the only raw material having this characteristic where only natural seawater is used for its organic growth.
Strategically connected with one of the leading player of the seaweed extract industry, EVIAGENICS aims to identify and isolate innovative components issued from the exceptional diversity of algal raw material. Since January 2015, EVIAGENICS also commercially represents GELYMAR SA in Europe for all of its range of commercially available seaweed extracts (e.g. Carrageenans and others) for texturizing and stabilizing benefits to the Food, Personal Care and Pharma industries. EVIAGENICS team and laboratory helps GELYMAR in developing new products meeting the European market needs.
This unique combination of knowledge and expertise ranging from biotechnology, bio-industry, seaweed expertise and a deep understanding of the European market induces synergies and allows development of innovative differentiated products and solutions of high potential. Our expert and international team combines creativity, innovation, flexibility, speed-to-answer, market understanding, process and business expertise to offer our customers and partners unique solutions to their needs.
