Our industry experts across the region have experience with many specialised food segments. Take a look at their main focus areas.
Solving Challenges for Food Industries
Creating modern consumer products is an advanced process with numerous challenges and potential pitfalls. Our teams are here to evaluate and advise. Take a look at a few common industry challenges and see how we approach these issues and help customers overcome them.
Developing new beverage formulations
Many clients in the food industry ask for our help to develop dairy beverages beyond the usual taste of chocolate or vanilla. Look out for some innovative fruit flavours in your local markets, they may have come from us!
Reducing sugar in existing products
Clients often approach us to find ways to beat the sugar tax on their products. Using a mix of artificial sweeteners our innovation labs can develop low sugar versions which meet the taste profile and fall below the required calorie limits.
Seasoning causing batch inconsistencies
Oftentimes house-made seasonings can create batch inconsistencies for the final products. Our team has extensive experience with tailor-made seasoning solutions and can help to resolve inconsistencies, as well as provide economies of scale.
Expensive malted ingredients diminishing margins
Many clients in Asia want to use high-quality malted ingredients, but oftentimes can’t afford European malt prices, while staying competitive. Our teams provide malted ingredients from reliable Indian and Chinese manufacturers, guaranteeing quality while giving our customers pricing flexibility.
Connecting clients to the right international sources
Many times clients already have a specific new product in mind. The challenge comes when they set out to find a reliable technology provider. It is not only essential to test ingredients and make sure they will work as advertised. It is also important to have the right infrastructure and experience in registering and importing the required ingredients. Our team has broad experience in bridging this gap.
Improving technical application processes
Is your production stuck on a particular issue? Sometimes a completely new approach is needed to solve these problems. Our team, in close partnership with our international technology partners, can analyse application processes and provide new approaches to overcome challenges.

Asia’s rules and regulations can sometimes be difficult to navigate. That is why we have invested heavily in professional regulatory affairs teams in each country. Our local colleagues provide a deep understanding and know-how of local policies and help avoid mistakes.
ISO & OHSAS Certifications
All of our entities and infrastructure are ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 certified. Beyond that, our regional warehouse hub in Thailand is also certified for ISO 9001. These procedures allow us to continuously improve our operation quality and the safety of colleagues, clients, and end-users.
All of our offices and infrastructure run on one SAP system. This gives us and our partners full transparency of supply chain processes – from order until delivery, and after-sales.
