  • Cubes in sauce for a major snacks manufacturer

    Together with a major manufacturer of snacks we have developed a vegetarian snack variant within an existing snack line. The demand from this particular customer arose from market developments and trends such as the demand for healthier food. Increasing the share of vegetarian products within the product range coincided with the sustainability policy of this organization.

    Our specialist knowledge in the area of product development put us in a position to develop a customized nugget that has the texture of chicken. Of course we also considered costs since the extension of the product line required the price to fall within the same price range as that of the meat variant.




  • Market specific products

    For markets such as the Middle East and Asia we have developed all kinds of recipe formulations tailored to the local people’s taste preferences. Also, the use of certain ingredients can vary per market, inasmuch as in some markets egg protein or the addition of iron and minerals may not be allowed.

  • Christmas products

    We developed a Christmas product in order to differentiate a major retailer in the market. An increasing number of customers wish to offer vegetarian products in answer to the demand for healthy and varied meal components.



  • Spreadable salads

    Together with a major producer of spreadable salads, we have come up with a customized solution using vegetarian ham. By delivering the product in a specially customized packaging, our partner can now produce the cuts required for its different salads.

  • International fast food chain

    We developed a customized product, based on an analysis of the target audience, for an international fast food chain. Together with this global partner, we are continuously working on improvements in the sustainability of ingredients, supply-chain efficiency, and optimization of production processes.


  • Pizza topping

    We developed a pizza topping for an international pizza producer. The veggie product had to rate highly in flavour. It was also necessary to prevent the topping form drying out when cooking in the oven. Using a specific product development track we were able to come up with a suitable solution for this manufacturer. All along there was constant interaction between the product developers.
