Vestaron announces manufacturing partnership with Capua Bioservices

Vestaron Corporation, a developer of naturally occurring peptides with anti-insect properties, announced the signing of a multi-year manufacturing agreement with Capua Bioservices for production of its Spear family of products. “We are very excited about engaging with Capua for microbial fermentation, focusing on scale-up and commercial manufacturing,” commented John Sorenson, Vestaron’s President and CEO. “Capua Bioservices is a world class organization with extensive experience in the fermentation of the particular type of yeast that we’re using, and we consider this a critical link in our commercialization of Spear products.”

Spear products are developed from naturally occurring peptides with anti-insect properties. These bioinsecticides are non-toxic to humans, mammals, birds, fish, honeybees, and several other beneficial insects, and the absence of toxic residues give growers maximum flexibility in growing and harvesting their crops. Spear products have the same effectiveness in controlling insects as harsher synthetic insecticides, but offer the safety of biologicals.

Capua BioServices is a global provider of services in the field of custom microbial process development and manufacturing. They offer dedicated fermentation based solutions for applications in pharma, food, feed and other bio-industrial markets. They are one of the largest, independent microbial contract manufacturing facilities located in Western Europe, with a total fermentation capacity of about 1400 m3. The company is headquartered in Capua (Italy). Over the past 50 years, they have built a track record based on their extensive experience in working with a variety of bacterial, yeast and fungal systems.
