Mars Symbioscience



Our entrepreneurial spirit guides our ventures into exciting new areas. We put The Five Principles into action by embracing ambitious research that has the potential to change the world for the better.

Mars pursued extensive research to advance understanding of cocoa flavanols for more than 20 years. Working in collaboration with some of the world’s leading scientific institutions, we have published more than 150 peer-reviewed scientific papers and approximately 100 patents globally in the field of cocoa flavanols. To preserve the flavanols naturally and abundantly present in fresh cocoa, Mars scientists developed a patented process called Cocoapro® extract process that helps to preserve cocoa flavanols.

Pioneering some of the most innovative and breakthrough fundamental scientific research, the Mars Symbioscience team has incubated, introduced and transitioned five technology platforms in the areas of food, plant, biomedical and life sciences. From creating sustainable businesses for farmers to tree nurseries, composting and marine culture with seahorse farming, we are committed to developing solutions that have a positive impact on people and the planet.
