Danish bioscience company Chr Hansen has entered into a five-year partnership with Japanese biotechnology firm Amino Up Chemical Co. The agreement is part of a bid to develop dietary supplements and use the firms' nutritional ingredient portfolios to explore opportunities within functional foods.

Chr Hansen produces clinically documented probiotics, while Amino Up focuses on natural plant-derived ingredients.

Lasse Nagell, vice president global sales, human health and nutrition, Chr Hansen, says: "The products we are now working on with Amino Up have the potential to make a significant impact on the health and wellbeing of others."

"Some studies have already confirmed the synergistic effects of our new products. These are being finalised before being introduced to the global market"​, says Dr Hajime Fujii, executive director, R&D Division, Amino Up.

The first products from the partnership will be launched in early 2012. The global sales and marketing will go through Chr. Hansen, while Japan will be serviced by Amino Up.
