Lipogen expand facilities and build new phospholipids R&D center

lipogenLipogen Ltd. is expanding its production facilities and building a new phospholipids research and development center.

The development is in response to a 50 percent jump in sales of brain and stress health solutions in Q1-Q3 2015.

Lipogen invested US$2.6 million in building two additional production lines for PhosphatidylSerine (PS) and Phosphatidic Acid (PA). The company also added 10,000 sq ft to its facilities to double production capabilities for PS and PA.

Upgrades include automated controlled processing to reduce production costs through improved production traceability, and implementing new safety methods, allowing Lipogen to produce its all-natural, non-GMO, solvent-free ingredients in accordance with the highest industry standards.

The PS market is forecast to grow significantly due to developments of new applications plus a growing demand in emerging markets, such as India and China.

Data from Nutrition Business Journal put the US cognitive health market at $1.2 billion by 2014 and estimates the market will hit almost $1.5 billion by 2020.

“Increasing demand for our brain health and stress management ingredients pushed us to establish a new growth strategy for our PS and PA product line,” says David Rutenberg, CEO of Lipogen. “The phospholipids market is expanding from traditional brain function support to new brain health concepts, including: stress management, cortisol control, ADHD mitigation, sports nutrition and more.”

Lipogen continues to research and develop new cognitive and stress management solutions based on proprietary technology and enzymatic process. The advanced, well-equipped phospholipids R&D center was designed to support product development and product research at Lipogen facilities. The company has appointed Abraham Rutenberg as VP and R&D manager. In addition, Lipogen expanded its headquarters, appointing Ariel Gordon as VP Business Development manager to develop new segments and markets for Lipogen’s leading brands.

“I’m excited to welcome Abraham Rutenberg and Ariel Gordon to our team,” said Mr Rutenberg. “They will lead Lipogen to the next level via high-impact growth—not only in the dietary supplements industry, but also in the food, beverage and pharmaceuticals industries. Lipogen is committed to producing pure, high-quality products with minimal damage to the environment. We’ve initiated a long-term sustainability strategy for our complete product line.”

With 25 years of specializing in natural phospholipid research, development and production, Lipogen guarantees its customers ingredient systems that are supported by the highest level of scientific data, technical quality and safety to meet the growing demand for natural cognitive health solutions.
