As a result of the growing demand for sustainable marine products fed with microalgae,  Corbion , the global ingredients produced from microalgae aquaculture firm, announced three new strategic appointments in its team And thus amplify the impact of the award-winning omega-3 rich ingredient:  AlgaPrime ™ DHA . The expanded team will continue to lead business development and innovation with its clients and producers internationally. With the proven success of adopting AlgaPrime ™ DHA in the salmon industry, the new team will continue to drive the commercialization of omega-3 ingredients in the shrimp, marine fish, pet and livestock production markets.

The appointment of Ruud Peerbooms as Chairman of the Microalgae Ingredients Division and member of the Corbion executive team demonstrates the Company's commitment to fostering greater adoption of alternative ingredients from microalgae worldwide. Peerbooms will drive strategic initiatives to expand Corbion's microalgae business, including overseeing the company's partnerships for the development of the next generation of these ingredients.

Peerbooms has spent most of his career in commercial positions in the specialty food ingredients industry and joined Corbion in 2014 as Senior Vice President of Food. In addition to his position at Corbion, Peerbooms applies his passion for science and technology as President of Ingredients for Food Innovators (IFFI), a Dutch business network of food ingredient producers that focuses on developing healthy, sustainable and affordable.

As the adoption of AlgaPrime ™ DHA in the aquaculture sector continues to accelerate, two new team members will help expand the marketing of the omega-3 rich ingredient both globally and in key markets, including Norway and Chile .

The new team members are:

Geir Ivar Lanes as Senior Business Development Manager,  in charge of applying Corbion's ingredient AlgaPrime ™ DHA to salmonids. With an early background as general manager in oil rigs at IRM Services, Lanes spent the last 21 years as general manager of Havbrukskontroll AS, a consulting firm that works with aquaculture producers and suppliers in the areas of broodstock, spines, closed systems and production in get fat. His work covered almost all technical aspects of the aquaculture industry supporting clients both in Norway and internationally. Lanes has a degree in Chemistry.
