DORTMUND, GERMANY — Cognis has exclusively licensed two new ingredients, one for weight management and the other for cognitive performance, from Dortmund-based InterMed Discovery. Cognis plans to carry out in vivo tests and research studies for the ingredients later this year.
“We expect the first product to hit the market within the next year,” said Bernhard Muller, director of global R.&D. technology for Cognis Nutrition & Health.
The two companies in March of 2008 entered into a strategic cooperation under which Cognis may use a natural product database from InterMed Discovery.
