GELITA is a manufacturer of gelatin and collagen peptides for the food, health & nutrition and pharmaceutical industries. Gelatin is a safe, highly biocompatible and flavorless ingredient that is commonly used due to its unique versatility in food, medications and vitamin capsules. Gelatin, being a pure protein, offers several advantages demanded by today’s consumer as it is non-allergenic, natural sourced and GMO-free. GELITA differentiates itself by being more than just a supplier of gelatin and collagen products. They are a provider of innovations and overall solutions so that their customers can obtain that decisive competitive advantage in respective markets.
The Azelis France Pharma team has gained GELITA’s trust due to its large customer base, its complementary portfolio offerings and the high standards when it comes to customer service. Azelis’ large customer network within the pharmaceutical market segment will prove to be of great value whilst building new business for GELITA’s gelatin portfolio.
