When we recognised the increased interest in topicals, we took action. Our brand new laboratory in the centre of Cologne was opened in June 2017, with increased possibilities for semi-solid and topical formulation development as well as fluid bed granulation and coating.
By 2018, we were holding 12 hands-on training sessions per year, around half of which were tailor-made for our customers. By 2019, we were doing more than 60 customer and internal marketing projects per year. Today, we are developing an average of around 10 new nutraceutical concepts yearly that are science based and that reflect consumer trends.
With our non-traditional approach to pre-formulation analysis, and flow and feasibility of DC formulations, we have gradually grown to become the partner of choice for various feasibility developments for our customers. Our expertise in taste masking and flavours has helped with both ODT concepts and customer OSDF developments. Years of coating trials have helped to produce many application notes for internal and external supplier needs.
