COPENHAGEN, Denmark, 8 October. 2012 – For the first time since acquiring full ownership of Solae (its former joint venture with Bunge) on May 1, 2012, DuPont will showcase its broad portfolio of nutritional ingredients and solutions for food and beverage makers at HiE in November.

Coming one year after the DuPont acquisition of Danisco in May 2011, the purchase of all remaining shares in Solae has solidified DuPont Nutrition & Health as the premier specialty food ingredient and safety leader. The company’s presence at HiE will give attendees the chance to learn more about the unprecedented opportunities a fully integrated DuPont Nutrition & Health will bring to manufacturers of foods, beverages and dietary supplements.

“With Solae now wholly a part of DuPont, we are implementing the full integration of all our health promoting food ingredients and soy proteins to create a uniquely powerful offer for our customers. We believe there are significant synergistic benefits for customers in the way we combine our broad product portfolio, science-driven innovation, strong application and formulation expertise, and extensive regulatory know-how”, said Craig Binetti, president, DuPont Nutrition & Health.

The combined resources within DuPont Nutrition & Health help manufacturers create products with a healthier profile, and that actively promote good health, to address consumer needs in digestive health, immune health, oral health, bone health, cardiovascular health, weight management, dairy alternatives, children’s nutrition, sports nutrition and healthy ageing nutrition. The company’s capabilities are applied with a focus on the specific needs of key industry segments, including bakery, beverages, bars and snacks, dairy, meat, ready meals, pediatric nutrition and dietary supplements.
