Gelatin manufacturing process

About us

We are one of the world’s leading producers of high quality gelatins and collagen peptides. We have a global presence in terms of both our plants and sales support, and we count approximately 1,1​00 colleagues worldwide.

Why we do what we do

A natural, upcycled, and amazingly versatile ingredient. 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 gelatin that doesn't need to be heated, for example. Today, we supply a growing market in food, pharma, health nutrition and technical applications. And we are far from done. Apart from the obvious functional and health benefits of gelatin and collagen peptides, their production also has an inherent upcycling - and for some aspects even circular - quality: we upcycle a raw material that might otherwise simply have been discarded. In that sense, our products have an important role to play in today’s world.  

​​The Clear Solution. In all our efforts, we strive to be the Clear Solution for our customers. We spot and exploit opportunities, and try to anticipate future trends for them. We pursue outstanding quality and choice, as well as smooth delivery. And possibly most important of all, our customers can count on our support team. Knowledgeable and approachable, they will help you determine the solution that works for you.

What you can expect of us

At PB Leiner, we are all for clarity. That is why we like to clarify certain statements we make so that you know what you can expect when you work with us.
