Kellerhals Carrard advises Bloom on its JDA with Firmenich

Bloom Biorenewables, a start-up that creates molecules from biomass, has partnered with the Swiss-Dutch company DSM-Firmenich. This firm resulted from the merger, in May 2023, of two multinationals: a Geneva-based flavorings and perfumes giant, Firmenich, and DSM, a Batavian specialist in cosmetics, well-being and nutrition. The signature of a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) will accelerate the commercialization of 3 key molecules from Bloom’s product portfolio and will provide a solid framework for future synergies ahead. Bloom develops innovative solutions to deconstruct biomass and to help the reduction of carbon footprint around the Globe.
