Strong past, strong future
We go way back. To 1919, to be exact. Upon the solid foundation of the past, we build for the future. We balance thoughtful decision-making and bold curiosity, because we need to push boundaries while having some fun along the way.
“To develop and produce circular bio-products and their applications, based on surface fermentation.”
– that’s our purpose
1. We’re built to last
We go way back. To 1919, to be exact. We honor the perseverance of our founder Alphonse Cappuyns, and all the hard work, knowledge, and trust former generations have poured into the company. Our history makes us the reliable, trustworthy partner we are today. Former generations provide us with the craftsmanship and the experience to continuously create high-quality products. Upon the solid foundation of the past, we build for the future.
2. We’re born to be bold
We find ourselves at the hallmark of a global transition towards sustainability and circularity. Our products and our processes derive from nature, and it is our duty and privilege to give back to the environment. We continuously strive to do better, to push boundaries and to close the circle. This doesn’t just happen. We balance thoughtful decision-making and bold curiosity. We embrace the wisdom of uncertainty, as it invites us to get creative, to make things work differently, and have some fun along the way.
3. We’re in it together
The Citribel production processes are a daily reminder of connectedness. Once you’ve seen it with your own eyes, it’s impossible to forget that everything is linked: the molasses and the fungi, the mycelium and the citric acid, the water and the fishes, the fermentation and the crystallization, our colleagues and their families, the buildings and the neighborhood, the company and its environment, past and present, present and future generations, you and I and us. We commit ourselves to the bigger picture, to the health and wellbeing of our people and planet.
