CREATING SUSTAINABLE SPREADS; UNILEVER AND FEYECON ANNOUNCE TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER AND LICENSING AGREEMENT
Recently Unilever has made the first steps in the improvement of the environmental footprint of their Spreads portfolio (butter, cream, margarine etc.) through the re-launch of the Becel/Flora product portfolio using the new Coolblending technology.
IMPROVING SUSTAINABILITY WITH COOLBLENDING TECHNOLOGY
Over the years the company FeyeCon (Weesp, The Netherlands) has contributed to the development of Unilever’s Coolblending technology. Coolblending technology is an important development in Unilever’s ambition to reduce the company’s carbon dioxide footprint and has been implemented in its spreads business in Europe in 2012. The technology will be rolled out during the coming years across several regions.
Unilever and FeyeCon can now announce that relevant FeyeCon intellectual property rights have been transferred to Unilever allowing Unilever full access to the technology. In addition FeyeCon has obtained rights to relevant Unilever patents, allowing them to roll out the technology in other product areas.
