Client Cases

  • QiZiNi: “We are already adding Schouten’s mini-falafel to four veggie wraps.”

    In 2011, Greencore Nederland and Johma Sandwiches joined together to form QiZiNi. Over the years, the ‘friendly food company’ became a major convenience food player. Their rolls, sandwiches and convenience meals find their way to consumers through private labels and their own brands. Product Development Manager René van Vulpen went looking for a mini-falafel that Schouten could supply to respond to customer demand for a new veggie wrap. Schouten could provide those. René talks about a very successful process.
