Developing new powder applications

Are you looking to develop new powder applications, or improve your current production processes? Our specialised Product Development Centres (PDC) have all the expertise and equipment you need to achieve your ambitions.

Product trials that move your business forward

Whether you’re making B2B products like flour or skimmed milk powder for the global food manufacturing industry, or B2C formulated powders for athletes, infants or the elderly, our specialised Product Development Centres in the Netherlands and France are here to support you. Here are some examples of what we can help you achieve:

  • Develop and test new products and processes
  • Improve and optimise existing products
  • Scale-up new recipes
  • Optimise performance
  • Produce application samples
  • Explore new food types (e.g. plant-based proteins)

New business opportunities

Given the rapid increase in consumer demand for non-dairy proteins, maybe it’s time to explore new business opportunities in plant-based proteins or fermented ingredients? Plant-based proteins (e.g. pea or canola protein) are increasingly being used in manufactured foods like biscuits in place of dairy proteins, and fermented ingredients are becoming popular to produce dairy protein with micro-organisms, protein from biomass or from novel ingredients like oligosaccharides. All these avenues offer good potential for profitable expansion.

If you’re interested in entering the market for plant-based proteins, work with us to devise the best production process, and minimise your energy use without jeopardising the quality of your end product.

To explore fermented ingredients, we are currently building a dedicated Product Development Centre where we will make specialised equipment and expertise available in e.g., chromatography, filtration separators and homogenisation.

Discover our test equipment and lab

We offer various spray driers for you to test, and can create line solutions with spray dryers as the core technology. These may include e.g. homogenisers, heat treatment, mixers and filtration units. Our laboratory provides all necessary analyses to control the process during the trial, and analyse powder samples.
