This mission requires the collective work of a whole community – from our employees and clients to our research and sourcing partners to food consumers everywhere – coming together to create innovative, concept-based solutions. Each solution is a unique combination of our functional, taste and visual, and nutritional expertise. Our role is to offer tailored services, expert advice and cutting-edge capabilities to all our clients (industry, food service, butchery) and maintain a high quality standard up and down the supply chain. Our priorities remain the taste, texture, and functional and nutritional values of the final product and the health, wellbeing, and satisfaction of consumers.

Partners

As a partner, we bring value to our clients. Our solutions are also intended to help clients deal with the complexities of a changing food world. Legislation, health sciences, processes and consumers’ needs and tastes are in constant, high-speed evolution, thus accelerating product lifecycles and distribution constraints. Solina’s tailor-made solutions, as well as the advice and expertise we provide, empower our clients to face up to challenges and obstacles in areas ranging from traceability, food safety regulations and formulation to industrialisation, marketing and labelling.

Food innovations: global reach & local expertise

With our “glocal” business approach, we develop knowledge and know-how in the latest science and global food trends but also in the singular regional flavours and culture of the countries where our clients operate. Our organisation relies on two main complementary areas of impetus. Firstly, our global reach includes partnerships with universities and government bodies as well as laboratories and research centres. Secondly, our production sites and R&D departments in more than 17 different countries allow us to reap the many benefits of client proximity and local taste specificities.

Our connected community is the pivotal piece of our organisation. As a service company with industrial capabilities, our multidisciplinary teams develop complete and bespoke ingredient solutions encompassing creative product concepts and related services for our clients. These teams consist of food experts coming from a diverse range of backgrounds to ensure we can meet any challenge clients come to us with. Passionate about food, they follow and forecast food trends to support our clients in developing innovative and trend-led products and concepts.

Future food: tasty, healthy and environmentally friendly

Solina’s main commitment is to good food, which means of course that it tastes good but also that it’s good for your health and for the environment. We help our clients create a better food experience for consumers everywhere. Whenever we develop products with lower fat, salt or preservative content or that are organically grown and processed, we have a positive impact on consumer health. But we never lose sight of the fact that the food products we develop need to be delicious to enhance the consumer’s sensory experience. 

Our Future Food programme around protein-rich foods derived from non-livestock is a great example of this balance. This programme is an essential part of our commitment to future foods. We want to stay ahead of food trends and leverage our diverse expertise to help our clients continue to make food that tastes good and is a pleasure to eat in a world of changing market and regulatory demands.
