Biotechnology, Our Greatest Strength

BDF Natural Ingredients is a Biotech company specialized in the research, manufacture and commercialization of innovative and technological additives for the Food and Nutrition & Cosmetics industries.

Over the years, ingredients with ever-growing technological factors have become more significant within the company, with these new products arising from our commitment to implement rigorous R&D. This specialization has meant that the company has gone from working exclusively in the local market to reaching over 50 countries on various continents.

We have extended know-how and experience in the development, application and use of enzymes, proteins, clean label solutions, antioxidants and starter cultures. BDF portfolio covers the need of mulitple sectors as Meat, Fish, Vegan, Dairy, Bakery, Supplements and Cosmetics.

The company has extensive experience in the national and international market, which allows us to offer our clients a top quality commercial service, together with technical assessment adapted to each of our client’s individual needs. BDF Natural Ingredients operates globally, with headquarters in Spain (Europe) and offices in China and the United States of America.

BDF Biotech is a leading European company in the investigation, development and manufacture of premium bioactive natural ingredient formulations for the Nutrition and Cosmetics sector.

BDF Biotech was created in 2014 as a subsidiary of the BDF Group. It began by specializing in the production of Transglutaminase enzymes for the food industry. A few years later, its activity had already expanded to the production of fish gelatin and hydrolyzed collagen. The ingredients and food supplements we manufacture at the BDF Biotech facilities today are currently in high demand on the international market – and not only in terms of the food production sector. Our products are successful nutricosmetics, and perform as an ideal substitute for other synthetically-obtained products.

With a state-of-the-art 5,000 m2 production plant, BDF Biotech has become a cornerstone for the growth of the entire business group. Our investment commitment in R+D+I over the last few years is now showing the results we were all anticipating, and numerous projects that are key to BDF’s continued growth have been successfully completed.

BDF Biotech is based in the Canary Islands, a location well-known for its scenery and climate, however it is also a unique place when it comes to producing renewable energy sources. The production plant has been optimized to carry out several of its manufacturing processes, using both solar and wind energy, which help to provide us with a more sustainable production model. 

BDF Natural Ingredients LLC is the group’s new branch in the Untied States of America.  Our products now ship to over 50 countries from our main offices in Girona (Spain), and to further our growth and effectiveness we are opening a new international branch on the other side of the Atlantic.

This new location takes our international expansion to a whole new level. The top priority of this new locally-based management centre will be to facilitate client and technical support. Located in a strategic hub in North America, our capabilities to generate new business opportunities in U.S. for the food, nutrition and cosmetics sectors are now increased.


Leading the way ahead

At BDF, we consider biotechnology as our cornerstone, the reason behind our success in the industry, and an integral part of what we offer as a company.

We are proud to have a highly-qualified team, state-of-the-art biotechnology laboratories, a fermentation pilot plant and a production plant equipped with bioreactors from 5L to 3000L, while we also further our scientific knowledge and understanding by working closely with universities and research groups.
