The year 2021 is a special one for Mibelle Biochemistry: Not only do we celebrate our 30th anniversary, also we are very happy to welcome a new Managing Director: On May 1st, Fred Zülli will hand over the reins of Mibelle Biochemistry after 30 years to Cornelia Schürch, previously Head of Development & Compliance.

Fred will take on the new role of Business Development Director and will lead the research department and the entire sales team. He will focus on the development of new active concepts and ensure Biochemistry’s continuous growth in all areas.

We would like to thank Fred for his numerous valuable contributions over the last 30 years, he built this business unit from scratch and led it to an established, significant position in the market. We are thus very happy that he will remain with us for a few more years and continue to develop the business successfully.

Cornelia joined Mibelle Biochemistry in 2002. She graduated as food engineer in 1998 at ETH Zuerich. In 2002 she did complete her PhD thesis in the laboratory of food microbiology, just before she joined the Mibelle Group Biochemistry team as scientific assistant in product development. In 2003, she took over the product development team. 2007 the regulatory and compliance department had joined the development department under her supervision. Since 2011 she acts as vice business manager of Mibelle Group Biochemistry and completed her EMBA in 2013.

Cornelia has been valuably contributing her profound knowledge and innovation skills to the business unit over the last years. Furthermore, Cornelia has acted as Fred’s deputy with the objective of getting a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of our business unit during the last years. She is now perfectly equipped to take over the role of Managing Director.


Please join us in welcoming Cornelia to her new role!
