In November, we reported that S2G BioChem has entered into a license and collaboration agreement with Mondelēz International — a leader in biscuits, chocolate, gum, candy and powdered beverages — to help commercialize a sustainably-sourced supply of the food ingredient xylitol using a proprietary co-production technology.
Commercial-scale production of the sustainably-sourced food ingredient xylitol is expected to begin in 2018. Mondelēz owns billion-dollar brands such as Cadbury, Nabisco, Oreo, Trident and Dentyne.
So, what exactly is S2G and how did they land a relationship as gigantic as Mondelēz? S2G BioChem CEO Mark Kirby gave this illuminating presentation at ABLC Next in San Francisco.
