GLOBAL - DSM Food Specialties and Sanovo Engineering have strengthened their position and know-how in egg processing through partnership.

DSM Food Specialties and Sanovo Engineering A/S have announced their partnership in egg processing. This partnership, which also contains a joint development agreement, will focus on bringing the leading edge technologies of both companies to market.

Thor Stadil, Chairman of the Board, Sanovo Engineering said: "By joining forces with DSM, we are convinced we have chosen the best company to strengthen our offering to the egg processing industry. Sanovo Engineering and DSM Food Specialties truly complement each other as partners. Today's egg processors and food manufacturers welcome innovative egg products as well as effective alternatives to traditional processing methods. They are also keen to replace energy intensive processes with enzyme driven processes. Through this partnership we can now offer such key technologies to our customers, in addition to our current products and services, such as egg-sorting, egg-breaking and turn-key plants and process automation."

Theo Verleun, Industry Manager Food Processing Enzymes at DSM Food Specialties, commented: "In this partnership, DSM expects to accelerate the market introductions of the novel products in our pipeline. The knowledge of Sanovo engineering in hardware management will speed up the alignment of the ideal cost-effective enzyme conditions with new or available hardware. Overall, we believe it is a three-way win. Our customers, the egg-processors, will get the newest DSM enzyme technology supported by the ideal hardware set-up and respected well-known services of Sanovo Engineering."


Enzymes are biocatalysts used to help speed up chemical reactions that are contained in every living organism. They function as a natural catalyst for a biochemical reaction, without being changed or diminished. Enzymes are, for the most part, derived from fungal and bacterial organisms, with some products coming from plant sources, such as papaya or pineapple. DSM Food Specialties' leading enzyme and fermentation technology, combined with its application knowledge, enables the company to develop enzymes that help customers to achieve or exceed their manufacturing goals. Enzymes can ensure cost savings and promote a more sustainable way of producing (food) products by improving processing efficiency, replacing physical and chemical treatments, reducing energy needs and using fewer raw materials.

Sanovo Engineering, a privately owned company – headquartered in Odense, Denmark – is the leading expert in areas such as egg breaking and processing equipment for the egg processing industry. For more than 40 years, Sanovo Engineering has been a dedicated partner and supplier to the global egg processing industry.
