Nutriset / IRD's patents

Following joint research works, Nutriset and the IRD (French Research Institute for Development) developed innovative technological processes in 1996 and then in 1998 regarding high energy foods or nutritional supplements, their stability, preparation method and uses, for which patents were filed.

These innovations have enabled the development of a range of products, which Nutriset extends every year thanks to the advancing of its scientific and technological knowledge. To date, the best known product resulting from these innovations is Plumpy’nut®, marketed by Nutriset and members of the PlumpyField® network.

In pursuance of an agreement with the IRD, Nutriset is the user of these patents until their expiry.
