Discover its infinite potential
There once was a natural living micro-organism. So tiny, no one even noticed it. Egyptians claimed that its activities were the actions of gods until science revealed its magic.
So, what was this unseen being that gave our ancestors bread, beer, wine, and many other delectable things that have become fundamental to our society?
This tiny organism with big SUPERNATURAL abilities is known today as YEAST!
The more we study yeast the more we discover the HUGE impacts that this little organism has on our lives. Science is finding new uses for yeast every day that can help not only human beings but the whole planet.
So our ancestors were right, yeast really is magical!

To nourish 9 billion people, in a healthy way, in 2050 by making the most of our planet’s
resources is a major and unprecedented issue. We believe that fermentation is one of
the most promising answers to this challenge.
A key global player in fermentation for more than a century, Lesaffre, with a 2,2 billion
euro turnover, and established on all continents, counts 11,000 employees and more
than 90 nationalities. On the strength of this experience and diversity, we work with
customers, partners and researchers to find ever more relevant answers to the needs
of food, health, naturalness and respect for our environment. Thus, every day, we
explore and reveal the infinite potential of microorganisms and work together to better nourish and protect the planet.
