At this year's Fi Europe (FiE) in Paris, BENEO—one of the leading manufacturers of functional ingredients—will demonstrate its continual commitment to support customers in all phases of product development by introducing the creation of its BENEO-Technology Center.
The BENEO-Technology Center brings together BENEO's long-standing food application and technical expertise to enhance and encourage product innovation. As such, it will complement BENEO's chain of expertise that was implemented in 2009 when they founded the BENEO-Institute, which offers guidance and leadership in nutrition, health and regulatory affairs. Additionally, BENEO provides customers with dedicated consumer and market insights, going so far as developing product and marketing concepts to demonstrate the benefits of BENEO's functional ingredients. The BENEO-Technology Center will complete this chain of expertise by providing customers with advice from specialists to tackle technical questions in product development and formulation.
Highlighting one of the areas of expertise covered by the BENEO-Technology Center, Rudy Wouters, Vice President Food Application Technology and Head of the BENEO-Technology Center, will be speaking at FiE on the topic of creating texture and creaminess in reduced-fat food products.
