As part of the Health Care division, Jopling will work on the UK company’s move into functional foods with the emulsion which it will be featuring at the Vitafoods trade show in Geneva next month.
“I am delighted to have joined the Health Care division at Croda Europe at what is a very exciting time for the company with the launch of Ωmelife,” Jopling said.
“The global market for omega-3 enhanced food and beverages grew from an estimated $3 billion in 2006 to almost $5 billion in 2008. It is projected to approach $8 billion by 2012, which represents a compound annual growth rate of 32 per cent between 2003 and 2012. “
