Tasty cases of tailor-made product development
Clientcase: Schouten mini-falafel in QiZini 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. Read the client case where René van Vulpen, Product Development Manager at Qizini, talks about their successful journey with Schouten to develop a new vega wrap.
Colruyt is switching to a sustainable tray
Supermarket giant Colruyt has been living up to its slogan ‘Lowest prices’ for years. In addition to attractive prices, the Belgian family business also has an eye for sustainability. For example, the chain asked Schouten to package their plant-based products more sustainably from now on. A label has replaced the cardboard sleeve, and the tray is now 100% recyclable.
Client case: Marley Spoon
The home-delivered meal box is becoming increasingly popular. Category manager Marijn ter Horst of Marley Spoon talks about choosing Schouten and the success of the formula.
