Helping you create products with wider consumer appeal

We understand the continual pressure to predict and respond to market trends and create products that have broad consumer appeal. Increasingly, consumers are demanding fewer ingredients that are “greener” more functional and provide health benefits. That is why most of our ingredients are natural, non-GMO, sustainable and environmentally friendly. We offer clean label and organic options as well as gelatine alternatives that are suitable for Vegetarian, Vegan, Kosher and Halal. We can help provide healthy outcomes including – low fat, low sugar, high protein, fibre enriched and allergen free products.
