3D Systems and CSM Bakery Solutions, leader in bakery ingredients, products and services will work together to develop sales, distribution of 3D printers, products and materials for the food industry.
As part of this project of the 3D printed culinary products, CSM will have complete rights to make use of 3D Systems’ ChefJet Pro 3D printer. The latter can make high resolution as well as colorful food products intended for the professional food industry.
“We are very excited about what this opportunity can mean for the food industry.” said CSM’s President and CEO, Marianne Kirkegaard.
For some years now, researchers have been exploring the use of 3D printing in the food industry. If quality issues are not yet tackled, it goes without saying that this technology brings a new look to this industry but above all proposes a solution to the environmental problems.
“Our agreement with 3D Systems has the potential to re-shape the food industry,” Marianne Kirkegaard said. “Across a number of industries, 3D printing has helped transform industries and there’s every reason to think the same can be true for the food industry. We are excited to partner and continue to expand capabilities and culinary opportunities with their platform.”
Vyomesh Joshi, 3D Systems President and CEO, is full of optimism about this agreement:
“Our extensive and versatile portfolio of materials addresses the widest range of applications and performance in 3D printing – from culinary to industrial,” he said. “As we continue to drive innovation and explore strategic partnerships with industry leaders, our partnership with CSM is a perfect fit to leverage our technology and capabilities to expand applications and materials.”
During this partnership, experts will focus on specific sourcing, food product development as well as strategic plan to be operational on the market.
