Considering cultures and food eating habits vary with region, we had to pay close attention to understanding and developing localized solutions. So, we set up our applications laboratories in different parts of the world to cater to local needs. Our knowledge pool along with our capabilities paved the way for solutions that meet our customers’ everyday challenges. To add to that, we also invite customers to conduct collaborative application projects to support their product designs for high-value and efficient shelf life solutions and nostalgia inspired aroma formulations.
Each of our laboratories adds value to our customer's business though four core functions:
Product development of shelf life solutions – food, pet food, animal nutrition, biodiesel, rendering and biodiesel.
Oxidative stability testing of oils/fats/lipids/food samples with the latest instruments.
Residue analysis of mould inhibitors, and/or bactericides, organic acids determination on products.
Development of food applications and evaluations for providing technical support to customers in terms of dosage, method of use, processing benefits, testing know-how and evaluation of shelf life solutions.
