“Our innovations are to fulfil customer needs and contribute to the health of patients. Innovation is a team sport: it requires intense collaboration internally but also with our customers, suppliers and even with the 25.000 member farmers of our parent companies with whom we have built a 100 year relation of supplying high quality pharma lactose. I am inspired by our heritage and motivated to grow towards a wide range excipient supplier and excipient expert.”
