About us

We are working with
enthusiasm and dedication
on innovative and
challenging plans.

About us

We are experts in new business in food. New starts with us from a strategic approach. Everything necessary for a sharp strategy or the development of a new concept we have in-house. Our expertise lies within all branches of the food supply chain: from agricultural to retail and food service. In addition, all colleagues have their own specialization in the field of concept development, marketing, NPD, insights and/or packaging. We can therefore offer absolute commitment to all our client projects.

Innovation is a profession

A well thought-out plan
from a real motivation is
the only thing that counts
for us.

Together with our clients we work on everything that has to do with new. This always starts with strategy, and then this translates into concrete product propositions and new concepts. Preferably from the very first real question to proof of concept – and where possible – up to and including introduction.

Working on things that are not there at the moment, that’s our strength.

EXPERTISE

Strategy new business

Growth strategy from the company

New business is never a goal in itself. For us it always starts with these two important questions; where does the company want to go and what is its main goal? The answer to these questions is developed together with our client through the use of our own compiled programs.

Insights & BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE

Trends, market data and consumer research

You cannot develop new concepts without insight. Insights from hard and soft data and trends are essential to arrive at well-thought-out solutions. For this we use different formats, where each format can provide different insights.

New business concepts

Clear propositions from the business case

To be truly successful with something new, a correct market approach based on strategy and insight is decisive. We write a clear-cut marketing strategy, developed from need, relevance market & product.

WHAT WE DO
