Excursion to Ohly an ABF Ingredients Company. Paving the way for future collaborations!

Ohly is part of the ABF Ingredients Company and one of the world’s leading suppliers of yeast products such as bakers yeast and yeast extracts.
This was a joint excursion between the ITB and the DEST (DECHEMA Studierendengruppe). An introduction between Ohly and the ITB of the TUHH took place with company and institute presentations, respectively. The highlight was the given tour of their production site where we got an impressive view of their large scale yeast fermentation and purification processes.

Ohly will offer collaborative bachelor and master projects as well as internships!
