About us
Enzyme Technologies (PTY) Ltd  is a 100% South African owned biotechnology company, established in 2006, for the purpose of developing technology to extract and stabilize an enzyme called bromelain from pineapple stems.  After 12 years of research, at a laboratory scale, pilot plant scale and now at a small commercial scale, ET has succeeded in developing the highest quality bromelain available on the market and we are currently the only manufacturers of bromelain in South Africa!  Our aim is to set the benchmark and become world leaders in bromelain production.  
 
We have a world class facility where we manufacture this highly valuable product and we carry FSSC 22000 ISO certification, a globally recognised food safety accreditation body endorsed by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), which enforces strict food quality management systems. We are also certified Halaal and Kosher and are a member of the Health Products Association of South Africa (www.hpasa.co.za).
 
We have registered our product with the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fishers (ACT36) for use in animals as a zoo-technical feed additive to treat chronic diarrhoea (V29542).
 
We have a diverse and dynamic team, with strong technical and business skills. One noteworthy member of our team is Clive Dennison, Emeritus Professor of Biochemistry, and an honorary lifetime member of the International Proteolysis Society, leading the Biochemical aspects of the project. Clive, together with Candice Eades (MSc in Biochemistry), developed the technology for producing high quality bromelain. Recently Enzyme Technologies also acquired the services of Dr Edith Elliott-Dennison (PhD in Biochemistry, Diploma in Medical Technology and Medical Microbiology) who consults on microbiological/biochemical/medical matters. These skill sets, combined with significant investments from government and private sources, have boosted the research efforts to the point where we are today.

“In 2015 Enzyme Technologies was awarded for being the Most Innovative Project at a Technology Innovation Event held at the CSIR in Pretoria”
