Description of the organisation

Biozoon Food Innovations GmbH (BZN) was established in 2001 and currently employs 25 persons. We are a specialist company in the field of powder products for food application.  With the necessary market knowledge and technological skills, we develop, manufacture and market high-value, top-quality products both for private and commercial customers. The business concept is based on three pillars:

  • Development, production and sales of own products
  • Development and protection of food processes and products, protecting them by means of IPR and licensing
  • Contract product development and manufacturing

Both product development and production take place in Bremerhaven. We see ourselves as a service provider who can respond quickly and unbureaucratically to the wishes of our customers. We produce all our products ourselves using modern fluidized bed agglomeration and mixing technology. Compliance to highest quality standards during product development and production is a matter of course.
