Our plant-based expertise for the food industry

 The time when plant-based only applied to vegans and vegetarians is past. The number of products with plant-based ingredients is also growing in other supermarket categories. Based on broad expertise and thirty years of experience, Schouten contributes to the success of many food producers. We are also happy to help you find the right ingredients for a private label product or your own name brand product. We are pleased to be a source of both information and inspiration.

A world of applications for the food industry

Schouten’s delicious plant-based ingredients can be used in a variety of ways. For example:

Customised R&D for the food industry

Do you want to change an existing recipe? Are you looking for a product with a longer shelf-life or different dimensions, for example? Do you want to eliminate certain ingredients? Our R&D department’s Tailor Made team will gladly develop a customised product for you. Collaboration and transparency are paramount. Do we see new opportunities presented by an innovative change? Do we anticipate problems with processing? We communicate and share information.

Our plant-based knowledge for your retail success

New products only have a short amount of time to demonstrate their success on the shelf. If you want to score, your product must be right the first time. Schouten stands by you with a wealth of knowledge about market trends, raw materials, and product characteristics. For example, plant-based ingredients hold up differently in a sauce than bacon or mince derived from animal sources.
