Solina strives to develop food innovations and provide customised concept-based solutions in an efficient way. To do this, we have built our production centres where our clients operate. Each production centre meets international certification standards and is able to respond effectively and quickly to the specific needs of each client we serve in the savoury Food Industry, Food Service, Butchery and Nutrition sectors. This ability is a direct outcome of our production ethos and a concrete illustration of our ‘glocal’ mindset.
Right Product, Right Place, Right Time
Solina’s production ambition rests on two distinct but equally important pillars. We want to be sales-driven and close to our clients in both the logistical and human sense. For these reasons, we currently have 17 production centres operating in ten countries. Russia is a growing market for Solina, and our 18th centre will be operational there by 2020. We also have logistics centres split in Europe (mainly France, Belgium & Romania).
This structure plays a major role in Solina’s ability to deliver customised solutions quickly. As Operation Director Sylvain Leopold puts it, local production helps us deliver “the right product, in the right place, at the right price and on time.” Every centre’s production operations meet the specific needs of local clients. For example, production at Solina’s newest centre in Izmir, Turkey is 100% halal. We stock over 16,000 different SKUs across production centres, which means we can respond to whatever order a client comes to us with. This proximity also ensures lightning-quick turnaround times, so we typically count a few days between receiving an order and delivery.
Food Safety and Quality
As far as quality is concerned, Solina’s aim is to
meet and go beyond food safety regulations.
Food safety and quality are a top priority at Solina.
We are proud of the ethical, sustainable way we source
the raw materials. We work towards sourcing raw materials
that are good for the planet and help us create high-quality
products that taste great.
