Novozymes opens new office in Kenya

July 7, 2019 |

In Denmark, Novozymes is opening a new office in Nairobi, Kenya in order to expand their presence in East Africa and unlock emerging markets for their enzyme technologies. They hope to reach consumers with their biological enzyme solutions that allow detergent producers to develop better and affordable detergents, breweries to be more efficient at producing beer, and bakeries to create bread that stays fresh longer and lower the amount of sugar added to bread, according to their press release.

“Novozymes also works with breweries across sub-Saharan Africa to help them save time, energy and water in the production of beer,” according to the Novozymes press release. “Thanks to enzymes, breweries can use local raw material such as sorghum and cassava instead of expensive imports to produce delicious, local brews. It also gives new viable incomes to African farmers to the benefit of local communities.”

“For bakeries, Novozymes has developed a solution that makes bread stay fresh longer and that will have a considerable impact on food waste. The product is currently being tested on the flat bread market in Egypt. High prices of imported sugar are another concern among African bakers. Novozymes now provides an enzyme that allows them to optimize costs by reducing the amount of added sugar in bread.”
