“We create a full experience that takes into account the needs of consumers and customers alike...”
Stéphane Marchin, Head of Dairy Center EAME
While great taste remains the core consumer demand for dairy products, our solutions address further, increasingly important criteria as well
We innovatively solve complex dairy challenges
Our dedicated dairy teams apply a unique collaborative design approach that combines their creativity and artistry with the best science, technology, application knowledge and consumer & market insights.
We're uniquely placed to create dairy products that standout
We combine leading research & technology capabilities with one of the most extensive raw material palettes in the industry, along with our proprietary natural solutions.
We cover the entire dairy experience, not just the flavor
We deliver visual appeal, aroma, flavor release, mouthfeel and aftertaste. We also help our customers enrich the product experience with qualities such as sustainable, traceable, natural and local ingredients.
Naturalness is a key driver in today's global dairy segment
Under our Code of Nature brand, we combine our increasingly natural and traceable raw materials base with our pioneering scientific creativity. This ensures that consumers are able to find the naturally-sourced, high-quality (and great-tasting!) dairy products they desire.
Since our 2014 acquisition of Diana Group, we're increasingly able to deliver solutions that respond to growing demands for natural and nutritious ingredients. In 2015, one-third of all new dairy products claimed the use of natural ingredients — a proportion that continues to rise.
Our extensive, analytical capabilities and consumer knowledge result in bespoke solutions with quick turnaround times. Our dedicated customer teams collaborate with each company to ensure that we fulfill both your brand and product needs.
Our brand SymLife® ensures we're able to balance the health and nutritional needs of the consumer with no compromise on taste. Sugar reduction in particular continues to be a top priority for consumer goods, and dairy is particularly scrutinized in this respect.
What's more, as plant-based alternatives and fat-reduced/fat-replaced products become more prevalent in the dairy world, SymLife® allows us to capture the creaminess and mouthfeel that consumers still demand from these types of products.
This is most apparent in the desire for natural, nutritious ingredients that improve consumers’ sense of well-being.
More and more of our solutions are enabling our customers to deliver products that meet this growing demand. From diet-specific and
‘free-from’ alternatives, to energizing, artisanal and multi-functional added benefits, our successes span all the segments and regions that we operate in.
