2018 Biotechnology Awards

48 GHP / Biotechnology Awards 2018 , Established in 2000, Roquette Klötze’s growth has been based on innovation, a passion for the job and a commitment to achieve, as Jörg highlights in his opening comments. “Here at Roquette Klötze, we are pioneers in microalgae cultivation. We have been growing algae such as Chlorella here in Klötze in the Altmark region since the year 2000. Thanks to our unique and patented cultivation method in a system of 500 kilometers of glass tubing, we can make sure that the algae receives the optimum amount of sunlight. Potential external contaminants cannot get into contact with the algae culture, ensuring that our product is entirely pure. Additionally, we only use the purest raw materials for the cultivations, such as the water we source from our own artesian well. “The entire cultivation, from the starter culture to the finished product, is checked by our in- house laboratory and certified according to international standards GMP, HACCP, ISO 9001, ISO 22000 and Halal. In addition, the products are regularly analysed by external laboratories. This combination of clean cultivation, our huge amount of experience, new insights from our own research projects, and the permanent checks and controls all make sure that we can offer products at an exceptionally level of quality.
