Döhler and Sacco System are pleased to announce their strategic partnership in the area of plant-based dairy alternatives and food cultures. This partnership will boost the development and success rate of new products and brands in this dynamic and growing market segment.
Fermented foods have been consumed by humans for over 10 thousand years already. Today, consumers have developed distinct taste and texture preferences that vary by region and by country. Moreover, plant-based food products imply the introduction within the industry of various new raw materials with different underlying tastes, textures, and processing needs, while consumers, on their side will not compromise on taste. Producers are challenged to work with numerous new ingredients, complex formulations and multiple suppliers, which is both time-consuming and may even represent a risk for the successful launch of new products.
This is the challenge that the Sacco System and Döhler partnership is set out to address. The cooperation between the two companies has been focused on the mapping of possible solutions and on the identification of winning combinations that are ready to be deployed. On top of that, both companies will jointly continue working on innovative products as well as next-level taste and texture performances.
Sacco System, the international biotech company for the food, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical industries, and Döhler, global producer, marketer and provider of technology-driven natural ingredients, ingredient systems and integrated solutions for the food and beverage industry, now join forces to develop new innovative, clean label and 100% natural solutions for the plant-based dairy alternatives food market. R&D, innovation, and attention to the latest market trends are some of the fundamental pillars shared by both companies.
“Sacco truly believes in this exciting partnership which will facilitate shared mutual experiences in plant-based knowledge, thereby creating additional strength and market value for both companies.”
Carlo Appennini, Dairy BU Executive Director of Sacco System
“We are excited about this partnership as Sacco is a renowned company in the space of cultures, and bringing cultures to Döhler plant-based dairy alternatives will complete the offering. Customers will get the entire science needed to run successful fermented plant-based projects with decreased time-to-market.”
