With a fast, confidential and cost-effective capacity to develop new products. The creation of a coherent and efficient range is often the No.1 objective of our customers.
We have a wide range of formulas already developed for the most important features: drainage, slimming help, transit, flexibility, circulation, relaxation, tonic, visual fatigue, menopause, mutivitamines range and minerals etc.
These formulas are adapted according to specific objectives of each client, at no additional cost
Made In France
a positive image vector internationally, as the country is known for its general concern for food quality and its dynamic Food supplement industry.
Our products are present in more than 10 countries, including outside the European Union: Ukraine, Russia, Mexico etc.
But also one of our solution to lower the carbon footprint of the cycle production, making most of the production operation in a limited geographic area (in the “Rhone Alpes” region)
Marketing and Strategy
We are frequently involved in the marketing conception of the range of products of our customers (from the market segmentation to the final products) specially in the emerging markets.
Our vision of our contribution
Develop consistent food solutions, in line with the expectation of an important and ever-growing part of the population (“eat less and better”).
This begins with a fine understanding of nutritional needs and new types of eating habits: Vegans, Fasting diets, Seniors more and more active a long time, Teens who are reluctant to eat 5 fruits or vegetables a day, sportsmen who want to combine low mass fat and endurance performance, weight stabilization program, etc.
So many specific situations, which call for adapted answers. We share this expertise with our customers to enable them to define a relevant segmentation that will be recognized as such by consumers
Some recent lines of work
Daily nutritional balance is essential for long-term health
Moderate and daily intakes are better than intense corrective treatments. A cure is a way of correcting or making up for past imbalances, but it is better to bring nutrients and ‘facilitators’ to the body every day.
The true digestibility of nutriments must be integrated into the design of formulas
Foods are useful only in their part absorbed in the intestine,passing really ‘in ‘the body , it is the concept of ‘digestibility’ which is largely under estimated in the nutritional calculation. This digestibility is very variable from one individual to another (depending on its intestinal flora, the age, the heredity) and also from one nutrient to another.
The case of iron:
(iron of blood origin is correctly assimilated by the organism, iron ‘non-hemi-non sanguine’ is much less: it is an element to take into account in the conceptions of diets Vegan)
More functional packaging consistent with the objectives and participating to the product’s added value for the consumer
The pillbox ‘Vegan essential’ is a result of our concern for low carbon foot print (made in France, not in China, vegetal plastic & kraft,100% recyclable)
The case of probiotics.
Probiotics are living organisms (bacteria ..) intended to supplement the intestinal flora : as such they are obviously fragile, sensitive to temperature and acidity.
Their packaging in tablet destroys the majority by the heat (close to 100 ° c at the time of the compression), and in capsule ‘standard’ it is the acidity stomach which takes charge of it.
The right solution: the gastro resistant capsule that will protect the probiotics these two risks.
Some concrete examples of recent developments
