Caffeine micro-encapsulation technology
Summary:
An Italian company specialized in the production of natural caffeine anhydrous from different vegetable sources (coffee and tea) is looking for a technology of micro-encapsulation to be applied to caffeine for nutraceutical uses. The company is interested in commercial agreements with technical assistance or licence agreements. Partners from European countries are preferred.
Description:
An Italian company, with a well-established experience in the development and production of active ingredients from vegetables sources, is looking for a plant/machine able to implement the micro-encapsulation of caffeine through some steps of coating by proper different polymers.
The company, with a centenary experience in the above mentioned field, is located in Northern Italy and exports more than 90% of the total output, being present in more than 20 Countries all over the world. It started as a pharmaceutical company, gradually focusing its own activity on the development of relevant active principles, such as natural caffeine, theobromine, cocoa butter and cocoa powder.
Since 1960 the company has become one of the biggest producer of natural caffeine anhydrous extracted from raw materials of different forms and concentrations coming as a byproduct of coffee and tea decaffeination. Production and sales of pure Natural Caffeine Anhydrous (NCA) is currently the main activity.
Now the company is interested in enlarging its products portfolio and entering new markets thanks to the inclusion of energy-packed caffeine products in its range. The technology which the company is searching for should allow the micro-encapsulation of caffeine through different steps of coating by proper different polymers, maintaining untouched the product quality and properties.
The company is looking for a plant/machine available for micro-encapsulation of caffeine. The company is interested in both commercial agreements with technical assistance (the company never dealed with such technologies so technical support is needed) and also interested in a licence agreement.
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
The plant/machine the company is looking for should allow to micro-encapsulate the caffeine ensuring its quality and properties maintenance.
Different steps of coating should also be possible.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The main purpose of the cooperation sought is to have a plant/machine available for micro-encapsulation of caffeine. The company is interested in both commercial agreements with technical assistance (the company never dealed with such Technologies so a technical support is needed) and also interested in a licence agreement.
