Experience / Process

Designing and testing

Our OTC Candy Innovation Centre is especially created for our customers and located next to our headquarters in the Netherlands. The centre is equipped with a whole array of equipment designed and built in-house, making it possible to test production at preliminary table-top scale.

Our customers can visit us with their raw ingredients and their specific wishes and requirements, and our team of food technologists will guide them as they develop their new product ideas. They can also bring their current products, to analyse these, get advice about improvement opportunities and help to re-engineer them. At the end of this process, our customers are able to envision the realization of their idea by receiving a real-time Proof of Concept, developed in our pilot plant.

Customers are able to book the OTC Candy Innovation Centre for several days or even weeks to develop their concepts and recipes without disturbing their own production. Secrecy is ensured as the complete Centre is dedicated to that one customer and a non-agreement disclosure can be arranged.
