Paris, September 8, 2015,
SOLACTIS Group, specialist of bio-based ingredients designed for human nutrition and animal feed companies, announces the opening of its new R&D center on the Inra campus in Jouy-en-Josas, near Paris (France).
The new R&D center of SOLACTIS Group has a triple mission:
1. understand the effect of new bio-based ingredients on the intestinal microbiota using state-of-the-art technologies in genomics,
2. work on the behavior of the new bio-based ingredients in food matrices,
3. be also active in the field of animal feed.
“The implementation of our new R&D center is a major step in the development of SOLACTIS Group. After 2 years in the laboratory of life sciences at Agoranov, we needed a new R&D framework able to accommodate our new ambitions” said Pascal RONFARD, President of SOLACTIS Group. “On the Saclay plateau, close to major academic and R&D centers in the field of food and nutrition, we place SOLACTIS Group in a highly challenging environment. We want our research to advance “gut health” applications in food and feed products, and promote their best use by the industry,” added Géraldine Bastien, Head of R&D.
At the intersection of agronomic and biomedical sciences, the Inra Research Centre of Jouy-en-Josas develops research on animals, food and bacteria. It features among others microbiology skills mobilized for major animal and human health issues, with a particular interest in “health-food” relationship. Benoit Malpaux, President of Inra Research Centre of Jouy-en-Josas, confirms that “the aim of this collaboration is to develop some local dynamics for more efficient and effective research“.
