NEWPORT BEACH, CALIF. — Layn Corp., a global company involved in the vertically integrated production of plant-based sweeteners and extracts, has set up four business units, including Plantae, its new functional botanicals unit. The other three units are plant-based sweeteners, cannabidiol (C.B.D.) and other hemp extracts, and animal nutrition.
The company has an advantage over other C.B.D. suppliers in that Layn USA already has experience in the food industry, she said. The company for more than 20 years has taken extractions from stevia and monk fruit to use as sweeteners.
