Sowing the seeds of inspiration

Our R&D department is a cross-disciplinary innovation committee.

Its goal is to gather ideas and to find the means of adapting to local cultures and to new trends in food, to improve current and future processes, to develop new products, but also to deal with the special requests of our customers.

At international trade fairs, on an annual basis we present new creations that regularly win special awards.

Expertise and knowledge sharing…

From the land and those who farm it through to consumers, we have cultivated a field of talent: machinery manufacturers, maintenance staff, the workers and engineers in our factories, our research and development committee, our sales, logistics and marketing departments, our customer and distributors…

Our expertise is enriched through contact with sectoral networks like FIWAP and CWPPT, industrial federations (Fevia, Belgapom) and university research centres, particularly those of Ghent and Gembloux with which we run projects for the future (including Wagralim).
