Clean and natural ingredients for a highly conscious market
It will come as no surprise that the top consumer trend in Food & Nutrition still is “clean label” and “natural origin”.
In Barentz’ portfolio you will find all the natural and novel ingredients you need to make a product in line with today’s trends. We work with full transparency in the supply chain to guarantee a “clean” product. In this newsletter we will look closer at two upcoming plant based ingredients: quinoa from our new supplier GreenFood50 and water lentils based protein powder from Parabel.
In our regional Concept & Application Centres in The Netherlands and Finland, we are working actively to develop new food concepts that live up to the expectations of the highly conscious consumer of today – products made with alternative proteins, free from gluten, soya or lactose, with reduced sugar and salt levels, vegan or vegetarian, or any other particular requests from one of our 6 000 customers world-wide. This is how we fulfil our motto “from source to solution”. Let us serve you, not only as your preferred ingredients supplier, but also as a formulations partner, in your next product development!
Barentz now operates in 60 countries and we are expanding into new territories year on year. Recently we established a joint venture in Thailand, where we will be focussing on the distribution of food ingredients within the Health & Nutrition sector. Barentz Middle East, established last year, has given us direct access to scarce raw materials growing in this unique region, such as saffron and liquorice. You can read more about our quality-certified saffron here.
Barentz Food & Nutrition will be exhibiting at the FiE in Frankfurt in November. If not before, we look forward to meeting you there!
Vice-President Barentz Food & Nutrition
