Best in class services

Fermentation is a complex art, and more and more of our clients want to understand the process and the subtleties involved. That’s why, in addition to our products, we want to share with you our most valuable asset: our knowledge. To do so, our expert advisors are available to meet and advise you, everywhere in the world. This is best illustrated by the Fermentis Academy: our program to develop and share our knowledge about our products.
