Research & Development
Particularly in the case of fruit yoghurts, characterised by short product life cycles, it is essential to react swiftly to changes in consumer behaviour. At AGRANA, we identify development potential and establish new trends. This is the role of our regional product developers and our international research and development team.
The sugar quota, which regulated the production and import of sugar following the introduction of the EU Sugar Market Regime in 2006, expired in September 2017. This has led to new challenges and objectives for us: Increasing the yield of sugar processing even further and minimising the decline in sugar content associated with storing sugar beet for longer periods.
The outcome: successful new products and technologies in our Starch segment. In detail: We develop special starches for our customers – tailored to customer needs and tested in practice. Vegan and Clean Label are current trends in the food industry which we are addressing with our new product developments.
