About us

PB Leiner, originating from the fusion of PB Gelatins and Leiner Davis gelatin, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high quality gelatins and collagen peptides solutions. Our gelatin production and hydrolyzed collagen manufacturing plants are located on four continents, with technical and sales support spanning the globe. We count approximately 1,2​00 collaborators 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. For 150 years PB Leiner and its predecessor companies (PB Gelatins, Leiner-Davis, …) have been growing that craftsmanship of gelatin and hydrolyzed collagen production, exploring the boundaries of its potential. 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 quality: by processing residual products of the meat and fish industry, we make sure that we make the most of our planet’s resources. 

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. We pursue outstanding quality and choice, as well as smooth delivery. And possibly most important of all, you 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.
