Committed to Sustainability – CPHI 2022

25. November 2022

In November, the CPHI 2022 in Frankfurt, the leading trade fair for the pharmaceutical industry, finally ended our long absence from trade fairs. We were all very excited to finally see our customers, business partners and friends again, resume personal discussions and make new contacts. One topic was especially important to us: Sustainability. And we were particularly proud of an innovation with a great deal of potential.

This year’s CPHI was characterized by a positive spirit and inspired by an influential industry report that sees Germany at the top of the global comparison when it comes to the quality of pharmaceutical products (click here for the report).

The report underlines what we have already been working on for a long time. In line with the motto of “tried and trusted” we are well known as a supplier of high-quality excipients and APIs. Our modern production facilities are GMP-certified and meet the highest standards. We are proud to be among the first manufacturers of GMP-certified excipients and to serve as a benchmark in terms of quality. (Our brochure ”Quality & Regulatory” brochure provides comprehensive information).

Discussions with our distributors, customers and partners have confirmed that we are not just heading in the right direction because of our products. Moreover, another reason for the success of IOI Oleo GmbH is that we keep our eyes and ears open, think outside the box and view our services in a holistic way.

Fully committed to sustainability

The protection of the environment and sustainable action in its many facets is one of the cornerstones of IOI Oleo GmbH. And for the pharmaceutical industry, too, this issue will become an integral part of corporate activity in the near future. that is why it was important to us to dedicate our trade fair appearance to the topic of sustainability.

The sustainability of our products and the entire company is part of the DNA of IOI Oleo GmbH. Did you know that 90% of the raw materials we use are of plant origin? We are pioneers and show this through many small and large measures. The conversion to green electricity for the entire company, including production, and acceptance as an associate member of the PSCI are just two examples.

The topic of innovation was also not neglected at the fair. Our experts were happy to present our new WITARIX® MCT powder AC8CN. It is based on just two, purely plant-based ingredients. Our WITARIX® MCT C8 coconut oil made in Wittenberge and acacia gum, and supports ketosis in a natural way. Our MCT Powder is characterized by a particularly high oil content of 70% and is ideal for use in dietary supplements and nutraceuticals. Anyone who wanted to could get an energy boost at our booth – our team mixed them a tasty drink with our MCT powder.

After three days of hustle and bustle at the trade fair, we can now say “It was a great trade fair! We received an incredible amount of positive feedback and had what felt like non-stop constructive discussions”. And with this exhilarating feeling, we look forward to the next CPHI in Barcelona and to inspiring you again with sustainable and innovative products.
