Who are we?
The PB Leiner Business Unit provides a complete range of high quality collagen proteins (gelatin). PB Leiner supplies a growing market in food, pharma, health, nutrition and technical applications from seven production sites that are located in Asia, Europe, North America and South America. PB Leiner belongs to the top three in the world in its sector.
The gelatin process includes raw material (pre)treatment, collagen extraction and gelatin purification. The overall production processes can take up to six months for specific qualities. Some fractions of the gelatin are further processed into collagen peptides.
Gelatins are used in multiple markets, including food (e.g. confectionary and dairy), pharmaceuticals (e.g. capsules) and photography (e.g. film and photography paper). In most applications, gelatins are only added in small amounts to the formulation, as a functional ingredient with superior characteristics. PB Leiner produces gelatin based on pigskin, beef hide, pig bone and beef bone. Raw materials are sourced regionally and competition for raw materials is not limited to other gelatin manufacturers, but also comprises other end-uses such as direct use as human food, pet food and leather manufacturing.
