Geltor and GELITA sign deal to commercialize first animal-free collagen
GELITA and Geltor signed a letter of intent for developing, producing and marketing the first ingestible animal-free collagen proteins – to be launched in late 2020. In this arrangement, Geltor is to design and produce the premium biodesigned collagen; GELITA will conduct clinical research and commercialize the product as an addition to its existing collagen portfolio.
Geltor, a biodesign company (and Blue Horizon portfolio company), is creating designer proteins through fermentation. It is the first to tap into the animal-free collagen market. GELITA is the global leading company for manufacturing and marketing collagen proteins.
