Responding to growing demand from the nutraceutical industry for the highest quality collagen peptides made from bovine material, Rousselot has expanded its global production adding a new state-of-the-art Peptan facility to its plant at Amparo, Brazil. This facility will operate alongside the Peptan F (fish) and Peptan P (porcine) manufacturing operations in Angoulême, France.
Rousselot can already offer its new Brazil-made Peptan B to the worldwide market. The Group has the market’s widest collagen peptide range and enjoys 100 percent in-house production. Peptan is a unique, natural, bioactive ingredient with scientifically proven health and nutritional benefits promoting bone and joint health, skin beauty, and also senior and sports nutrition.
Highest quality and safety standards
Rousselot invested several million euros in the new Amparo facility, applying the latest technologies and the highest manufacturing standards. All Peptan products are subject to a strict quality control program. Peptan B from the new facility meets or exceeds the highest global quality standards and is certified under ISO 9001 and IFS (International food standard) standards.
Securing future supply
Brazil’s geographic location ensures proximity to the highest quality raw materials and will secure the future supply of high quality collagen peptides to the Rousselot customer base. The new facility provides several key benefits to our customers:
- Increased manufacturing capacity to meet future demands
- Secure and stable supply of the highest quality collagen peptides
- Superior product consistency, with a neutral sensory profile
Easy to formulate, excellent for tableting
With its neutral sensory profile, Peptan is an ideal ingredient for any food or dietary supplement such as powdered drinks, functional beverages, bars and dairy products. Peptan B is available in several grades to meet all formulation needs. The new ‘Peptan B for tablets’ boasts superior properties such as excellent solubility and compressibility even for tablets with a 98 percent Peptan content.
