Corbion recently announced three new appointments to its algae ingredients team. The company said given “the proven success” of its ingredient, AlgaPrime DHA, in the salmon industry, the new team will continue to drive commercialization of omega-3 ingredients in the shrimp, marine fish, pet and livestock markets.
Ruud Peerbooms [pictured above] was named president of the algae ingredients division. In this role, he is tasked with driving strategic initiatives to expand Corbion's algae business, including overseeing the company's partnerships for the development of the next generation of algae ingredients. Peerbooms has spent most of his career in commercial roles in the specialty food ingredients industry; he joined Corbion in 2014 as senior vice president, food.
The other appointments include: Geir Ivar Lanes, who takes on the role of senior business development manager to lead the application of Corbion's AlgaPrime DHA ingredient in salmonid feed. Lanes has spent the past 21 years as managing director of Havbrukskontroll AS, a consulting company working with both aquaculture farmers and aquaculture suppliers within areas of broodstock, smolts, enclosed systems and sea cage production.
And Paula Arriagada Strodthoff, who has been named senior business development manager in that team; she will work with salmon farmers and feed companies in Chile. She comes to Corbion with 19 years of experience in technical support for human and animal nutrition. She was formerly head of nutrition and technology for EWOS Chile, where she was responsible for developing field trials and nutritional solutions for salmonids.
