Established in 1955, Croda Italy was the first subsidiary of Croda International Plc. Croda Italy serves the markets of Italy, Slovenia and Croatia.

IRB, established in 1999 as a private Biotech start-up company, was acquired in 2012, by Croda. IRB has through the years developed a unique plant cell culture platform to extract active ingredients mainly for cosmetic and health care applications that integrate the Sederma portfolio. 

The team at Croda Italy are dedicated to continuous improvement. We undertake Croda 1% Club activities within our local community and universities.
