Evolva announces Valencene

Evolva has launched Valencene, which it describes as a highly prized orange flavour and fragrance ingredient. As an alternative to extracting it from the skin of oranges, Evolva says that its process allows Valencene to be made in large amounts in a highly reproducible, contaminant free, sustainable and affordable manner. The company claims it has developed a cost-efficient manufacturing process at large production scale for Valencene and says it will start shipping initial commercial samples to prospective clients in January.

“Valencene is a great addition to our growing product portfolio, nicely complementing the nootkatone franchise,” said Evolva CEO Neil Goldsmith. “It is also a good example of our business strategy, focusing on products with supply chain issues. As we concentrate on our core pathways, we are generating substantial synergies in terms of R&D, production as well as marketing.”
