Message from the CEO
What a year it has been… again! I thought that we would be out of the pandemic turbulence by the end of 2021. But entering a new year, the COVID-19 virus is still determining almost everything we do.
The world around us
At Corbion, we focus our resources and capabilities on addressing the global megatrends of population growth, food security, climate change, and resource scarcity while responding to evolving consumer needs and preferences.

Our Advance 2025 strategy builds on Corbion’s fundamentals and strengths by bringing further focus to the business portfolio well aligned with global market trends.
