GELITA expands its capacities

GELITA’s collagen peptides are experiencing double-digit market growth worldwide - and there is nothing to suggest that this will change in the foreseeable future. The company is preparing for future demand with a new production facility for collagen peptides near Sioux City, Iowa, USA.


More and more people want to look young for as long as possible and to stay mobile into their old age. And a growing number of people active in sports want to optimize their performance. No wonder then that the market for collagen peptides is growing enormously - and an increasing number of manufacturers are investing in products with the corresponding active ingredients. In the USA, nutricosmetic sales rose from USD 89 million in 2018 to USD 144 million this year, an increase of 61 percent. The global market for collagen peptides amounted to $1 billion in 2019. It is expected to grow at an average annual rate of 7.7 percent until 2028.

GELITA is optimally prepared for this growth: In July 2019, the company inaugurated its new collagen peptide plant in Sioux City with an open day. Representatives of the government, suppliers, and construction companies followed GELITA’s invitation. The 2,800 square meter factory, equipped with state-of-the-art technology, increases the site’s production capacity by around 30 percent. With this expansion, GELITA is securing its position as market leader. The new production plant not only promises more growth, it also gives GELITA even greater flexibility.

Award winning:


In 2018, GELITA won the German Innovation Award with NOVOTEC® CB800. Now the company shares the award with its customers Reinwerk Solutions and Rhein-Neckar-Verkehr (RNV). Their practical implementation and application of NOVOTEC® CB800 in cleaning their trains was a decisive factor for the award presentation.
