BENEO will be celebrating the young company’s 10-year anniversary at FiE 2017 in Frankfurt, Germany. Originally launched at FiE 2007 in London, BENEO has since focused on delivering its brand promise to contribute to better nutrition and health for people and animals. This year, BENEO will be exhibiting at FiE once again and will be using the show as an opportunity to celebrate this important company milestone together with its customers and business partners.
A range of new functional ingredient product concepts will be on display at FiE 2017. In addition, to mark its anniversary, BENEO will be inviting visitors to get involved in a surprise activity and birthday celebration at its stand. In keeping with the 10-year anniversary theme, Mintel director of innovation and insight, David Jago, will be looking ahead with a presentation of what to expect from the next decade in terms of food and beverage trends.
Over the 10 years since BENEO was formed by the established and highly specialized industry players, Orafti, Palatinit and Remy, the company’s influence has continually grown. It is now represented in more than 75 countries and has over 900 employees in 7 offices and 5 production sites. Today, the BENEO-Institute and BENEO-Technology Center, which were created shortly after BENEO’s inception, offer customers and the wider industry insights into nutrition science, legislation and provide expert advice on application technology. BENEO’s continued investment in scientific research substantiates the technical and nutritional effectiveness of its functional ingredients and has resulted in a remarkable range of EFSA health claim approvals being awarded.
Dominique Speleers, Member of the Executive Board at BENEO, comments: “We are proud to have met and exceeded customer expectations over the past decade. FiE 2017 provides us with the perfect platform to celebrate the company’s accomplishments. The combination of strong science, consistently high quality products and services, and a committed team of employees, has helped BENEO differentiate itself. Working in close collaboration with our customers over the last 10 years, we have been able to create many successful healthy products that look and taste great, and are looking forward to an exciting future for the organization.”
