“We can look back on a strong second quarter,” said Tjerk de Ruiter, CEO. “Biobased Ingredients delivered organic sales growth close to the upper bound of the 2015-2018 guidance CAGR range. EBITDA grew strongly, driven by organic growth, the continuing strength of the US dollar, and the benefits of our productivity improvement program Streamline, which are coming through at a more rapid pace than initially expected. We are making good progress with the execution of our strategy.”

For 2015, for its business segment Food, Corbion anticipates growth at the upper half of its guidance range.
