What we believe in

Natural, healthy, and amazingly versatile. Gelatin, it grows on you. It is an age-old natural ingredient that requires patient craftsmanship to make. Ever since PB Leiner was founded, back in 1900, we have been growing that craftsmanship, and have been exploring the boundaries of its potential. PB Leiner was the first to introduce cold-soluble gelatin on the market, for example. Today, we supply a growing market in food, pharma, health nutrition and technical applications. And we are far from done. Gelatin and collagen peptides, apart from having functional and health benefits, are naturally circular products. In that sense, they have an important role to play in today’s world.

We pursue outstanding quality and choice, as well as smooth delivery. At all times, our customers can count on our support team.
