A “Living” Organisation

Solina is constantly evolving on all levels, from the make-up of our teams to the content of our expertise, from the ingredient solutions we develop for meat and fish products, ready-meals, sauces and snacks, veggie and nutritional products– to the advice we give, and always in accordance with client needs.

At Solina, each project development is run by a cross-disciplinary team of expert. W work closely with our clients at every step. We have proven experience in our client’s specific sectors. Our teams include technical support and R&D engineers who are professional chefs, flavourists, food technologists, technical engineers or scientists. They combine their skill sets to develop turnkey solutions adapted to the client’s processes and environment.

PARTNERS - The Value of Keeping our Clients Close

An ear to the ground

We value geographic proximity, so we have an on-the-field understanding of our clients' environment. We can provide advice to clients on issues related to regulations, labelling, marketing, and industrialisation, which can vary by country and region. We maintain R&D teams at all of our centres across Europe. This way, we can keep our finger on the pulse of local tastes and market trends, and provide truly tailor-made solutions.

Proximity for more flexibility

Proximity also allows us to offer much more than technical expertise to our clients – whether they operate in the savoury food industry, food service or butchery sectors. Not only do we appreciate the value of more in-person communication when developing targeted food solutions, but local production allows us to deliver products quickly as well – within 4 or 5 days on average of receiving an order.

Staying Ahead on Food Trends and R&D

Solina also aims to anticipate needs before they materialise. We constantly monitor the market and consumers to identify the latest trends.

We also conduct long-term research programmes that are affiliated with various universities, manufacturers, government bodies, digital agencies, laboratories and private research centres. MeatyL@b and Future Food are concrete examples of these ambitious initiatives. These programmes are housed in our pilot plants and in our centre of excellence, keeping us proactive when it comes to delivering innovative concept-based solutions to our clients and helping us stay on the cutting edge of the latest ingredient technology and global food trends.

Research & Development

The added value of our customised concept-based solutions relies on our decentralised approach to R&D. We are committed to keeping up with both the evolution of local tastes and the latest developments in global food innovation. A commitment to functional, pleasurable, healthy food solutions.
