The Munich Strategy Group examined 3,500 medium-sized companies. At 33rd place, GELITA ranks among the 50 Innovation Champions of 2018. For us, this is further proof that we are on the right path with our culture of innovation. In this issue of upto date we are also presenting two world firsts: leaf gelatine containing collagen, and a vegan gelling agent in sheet form. Using a new manufacturing process, GELITA has succeeded in producing agar-agar as a standardized sheet comparable to leaf gelatine.
Also deserving of an award is FORTIBONE®. The bioactive collagen peptide, which has been proven to be effective against bone loss, won the German Innovation Award 2019, the fourth such prize in two years. David Storl, the multiple World and European champion in shot put, is particularly enthusiastic about our innovative products. The collagen peptide TENDOFORTE® helped the athlete regain his fitness after a knee injury. “TENDOFORTE® not only relieved the pain, but also reduced the regeneration period,” says Storl in an interview.
