DuPont Nutrition and Biosciences (Brabrand, Denmark) intends to enter a strategic collaboration with By-Health, a leading consumer health care company in China. The collaboration would focus on research and development of probiotic dietary supplements with new functions, and joint research on intestinal microecology. Both companies have a foundation in probiotic development. By-Health acquired Life-Space Group, a leading branded probiotic enterprise based in Australia, and DuPoint offers a comprehensive range of clinically documented strains under the DuPont Danisco portfolio.
“At DuPont, we’re focused on improving people’s everyday lives, and China is an important consumer market. With our expertise within probiotics and microbiome science, we’re delighted to partner with one of the leading consumer health care companies in Asia Pacific to develop new probiotics-based products to satisfy consumers’ growing demand for natural health and wellness solutions,” said Anders Grøn, DuPont vice president and global business director, Probiotics, HMOs, and Fibers, in a press release.
