Global producer of naturally-sourced yeast extracts, Biospringer, a business unit of Lesaffre, continues expanding and investing in its Strasbourg site.
Sustainability and social responsibility
Biospringer environmental sustainability is one of our guiding principles across all operations. In short, we reap from the earth and give back to the earth.
Rather than throwing away the byproducts of our manufacturing facilities, we return them to nature as feed for animals and fertilizer for fields. Our latest environmental sustainability process technology has also been optimized to significantly reduce waste byproducts. We also recycle the water, sanitizing it at the nearby water treatment facility and then returning it to rivers and streams.
Biospringer uses raw materials sourced from farming to produce yeast
For our parent group Lesaffre, better nourish and protect the planet is a daily challenge and commitment.
