Collaborating to develop tomorrow’s food solutions
Solina leads the way in supplying bespoke ingredient solutions and trend-led culinary innovations for Europe’s savoury food industry. Our multicultural community of professionals help clients stay one step ahead of the competition and create sensory food experiences. Consumers demand good, healthy, environmentally friendly food – and that’s where Solina’s functional, taste and visual, and nutritional expertise comes in.
In the face of an increasingly complex food industry, our entrepreneurial and customer-centric food experts offer customised ingredient solutions which include a comprehensive suite of services to support Solina clients. From trend forecasting and R&D upstream, to overcoming organoleptic, formulation, traceability and packaging challenges, right down to branding and labelling – Solina can help.
Every aspect of the food industry is evolving fast, and we understand the challenges faced by food manufacturers. We pride ourselves on offering them the food solutions they need, backed by a customer-centric approach to generating added value. With in-depth functional expertise in the meat sector covering aspects like colour, stability and shelf life; taste and visual know-how and nutritional expertise, Solina has the capacity to provide unique, customised food ingredient solutions.
We work in true partnership with over 2,500 industrial manufacturing clients in 75 countries, minimising their workload and optimising returns. Our trend-led R&D, market analysis and intelligence put our clients in pole position to capitalise on emerging demand, new concepts, new formats, and new opportunities.
The four key areas we serve are the meat and fish industry (fresh or cooked products, marinades, etc.); the ready meals industry (including sauces, soups, vegetables, and seafood); the snack industry (including seasonings and coatings); and vegetarian foods, including meat substitutes.
Solina is at the client’s elbow, from start to finish
Solina’s wide spectrum of in-house expertise gives us a thorough grasp of processes and pain points within the food industry. It’s a business where legislation keeps tightening, consumers’ tastes and needs are shifting, health and marketing imperatives change – plus manufacturers face constraints like short product lifecycles and distribution pressures.
In this complex industry, we devise solutions tailored to our clients’ precise requirements. We support clients all the way down the line, from the early stages – trend forecasting and innovative R&D, sourcing, product development – through tackling regulatory or supply chain issues, industrial testing and production, down to marketing and labelling of the final product.
Solina has always been there for us, with technical solutions to ensure that things work as planned. Solina doesn’t just develop solutions, but they also suggest recipe modifications and how we could improve the taste profile and appearance of our meat products.
