About us

Biocatalysts Ltd

Biocatalysts Ltd is known as a speciality enzyme development and manufacturing company, sometimes referred to as enzyme toll manufacturer or enzyme consultancy company.

Starting out more than 30 years ago, the company has changed beyond recognition. Small cramped buildings have been replaced by state of the art facilities with room to grow. This includes a new intracellular enzyme production plant that was built in 2013. We led the way in the 1980s by making enzymes that customers wanted rather than a standard product range and we have been pushing boundaries ever since.

Having more than 30 years’ experience in the enzyme market, Biocatalysts has acquired a wealth of knowledge on different commercial and non-commercial enzymes. This depth of market knowledge represents one of Biocatalysts’ key capabilities; it helps us to deliver fast and effective enzyme solutions for our customers.

Biocatalysts offer a range of speciality enzyme options. Like most companies we have a standard off-the-shelf enzymes product range which many of our customers find suits their needs perfectly. For those who's enzyme needs are a little different, we have the ability to "custom tailor" enzymes. Examples of this include, removing a side activity in a product that is undesirable in a process. For those looking for something completely unique we offer the Novel Enzyme Development (NED) and Manufacturing service. From identifying an enzyme that exists as a concept on a database, through to producing large scale commercial quantities of stable enzymes suitable for global shipment, this service is a far reaching as it is possible to be in enzyme production! Loved by customers for the opportunities it presents with regard to biocatalysis reactions or the ability to add value to new products, this area of the business continues to grow rapidly.

We work closely with our customers and provide technical support over various sectors, including but not exclusive to dairy, non-dairy protein (e.g. peas, rice etc.), fruit & vegetable processing, beverages, flavour and fragrance, biomarine, healthcare and more.

Biocatalysts' vision: We will become and stay the world's leading speciality enzyme company and by the quality and dedication of our people, exceed our customers' expectations.
