FOODINNOV DEFINES ITS RAISON D'ÊTRE
2020 has validated the resilience of our business model thanks to the richness of our men and women, our real value. We rely on strong shared values - Team spirit, Commitment, Expertise and Agility - and on our RATIONALE: "Acting at the heart of innovation, nutrition and food transition".
Act, because we are always in action with agility and team spirit. Innovation is part of our DNA. We are all driven by this founding theme. Nutrition is one of our recognized areas of expertise. We all believe that tomorrow's food will have to be nutritionally better. Food Transition, because we want to be an actor in the transition of our food systems.
This is an essential ambition. We want to contribute more and more and sustainably, with less or better processed products. Our aim is to move towards healthier and more responsible food.
FOODINNOV CONSOLIDATES ITS STRATEGY
Despite the unprecedented crisis of the COVID-19, we have maintained our in-depth work on our strategy, with the support of the Nantes-based company BOSS TO BOSS.
All of our employees participated actively and voluntarily in plenary meetings or in groups in the form of interviews, workshops and numerous moments of exchange. The result is a reflection of "who we are" and "where we want to go".
LAUNCH OF ADDITIVE SCREENER
Concern for the quality of processed food products has become a priority for consumers. The search for "clean label" products and the hunt against controversial additives has become an element in the choice of a food product by consumers. In order to help professionals in their CLEAN LABEL policy, and to prioritize the choices between good and bad additives, we have designed ADDITIVE SCREENER.
