Holiferm and Ingretech sign a distribution deal for France

We are delighted to announce that with immediate effect, Ingretech will begin distributing biosurfactants supplied by Holiferm. This exclusive distribution agreement for this novel range of eco-friendly surfactants is applicable in France.

Holiferm’s 100% biobased and biodegradable surfactants are produced from European renewable feedstocks via a natural fermentation process, using yeast naturally found in honey. The product range is known under the tradenames HoneySurf® and HoliSurf®. These biosurfactants have a diverse range of applications and include home care uses such as hard surface cleaners and liquid dish wash detergents, as well as personal care formulations like face creams and shampoos. In addition to their unique environmental-friendly profile, the biosurfactants are COSMOS approved and offer different application benefits including an ultra-mildness to skin. Thanks to Holiferm’s patented highly productive fermentation process, these biosurfactants will for the first time be offered to the mass market within the highly competitive and still strongly petrochemical dependant surfactant industry.

“We have worked very hard to perfect the fermentation process to produce both sustainable and effective raw materials, that give customers a competitive advantage. Currently available at pilot plant scale, these biosurfactants are on track to be manufactured in what eventually will be the EU’s largest manufacturing plant for sophorolipids by Q1 of 2023,” adds Richard Lock, Managing Director at Holiferm. “Ingretech have an excellent reputation and market presence. That makes them an ideal distribution partner for us and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with them.”

Aline Serre, Associate Managing Director of Ingretech noted, “We are extremely pleased with this new collaboration and look forward to working with Holiferm. We are convinced of the bright future of biosurfactants in both cosmetic and detergent formulations. Holiferm’s fermentation technology is very impressive and we are proud to actively contribute to its success in France.”
