ORAFTI’s Beneo(TM) Program Scores Worldwide

Since the launch of the Beneo™ program more than 150 products now carry the recognizable Beneo™ symbol.

The Beneo™ program is a joint effort between leading food manufacturers and ORAFTI to communicate the beneficial health effects of Beneo™ inulin and oligofructose. The Beneo™ program aims to inform consumers with simple, consistent but scientifically based communication about the health effects. Products that are part of the Beneo™ program can be easily recognized by the Beneo™ label.

Over the last five years ORAFTI’s revolutionary marketing initiative has been available in some European countries. Given the interest of food manufacturers across the world in the Beneo™ program it is now time to open the program to the worldwide food industry.

Dominique Speleers, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at ORAFTI Active Food Ingredients said: “More and more products are launched with our Beneo™ label. Product trials are proving to be so successful that manufacturers are increasingly extending ranges to incorporate the label. This clearly demonstrates that the BENEO™ program is gaining momentum, raising brand awareness and creating added value for our partners”.

Why are the Beneo™ products successful?

Claims based on science: The Beneo™ label can only appear on products that meet the criteria established by an independent scientific committee. These criteria include guidelines about appropriate claims and dosage. In this way the label guarantees a sufficient presence of Beneo™ in the end product in order to have a positive effect on digestive health. A guarantee that is valued by the consumers!
Specific consumer insight: Dedication to qualitative and quantitative market research has allowed ORAFTI to provide its partners with clear consumer insight. ORAFTI’s knowledge spans all regions and can help to position a new or re-launched product as a success. The research has shown that consumers associate the Beneo™ symbol with healthy and qualitative high standard food products Therefore this is translated into increased preference and loyalty to products that carry the Beneo™ label.
Extended information: Consumers actively use the web to get more information about health related issues. Our dedicated website www.beneo.com is an important source of information for consumers as well as health professionals.
