The movement towards plant-based diets is a conscious decision to be part of the global food transformation. It is an attitude towards body, mind and planet. It is the attitude that your consumers have.

The co-creation journey
Givaudan constantly aspires to be our customers’ essential partner in the plant-based protein space. One way we make this a reality is through co-creation.
Together, we can develop the irresistible foods and tastes that delight consumers, stir memories and touch people’s emotions.
To help this, we surprise with our creativity inspired by discovery, innovation and insightful consumer understanding.
Everything we do always begins with the consumer. We carry out focused research to understand exactly what consumers are looking for, as well as identifying innovation opportunities and ideal brand positioning.
Before we begin to create, we identify a gold standard, then we take the time to pinpoint the right ingredients, ingredient suppliers and process technology for the application, taking into account the latest developments in the rapidly evolving plant-based space.
This step is all about colours, maskers, mouthfeel, taste tools, cooking cues and flavour profiles. Depending on the product, our experts will help you to find the best possible combination of these to meet your goals.
During the development phase, we focus on format customisation, structure and textural formation, and format stabilisation, combining your creativity with our expertise and technologies.
Whether you are creating from scratch or reformulating an existing recipe, our fast prototyping capabilities enable us to translate plant-based culinary concepts into prototypes in real time.
Testing is an essential part of the creation process. To make sure that your plant-based product hits the mark with consumers, we carry out both sensory panels and technical testing.
Consumer and Sensory Insights (CSI)
The key to creating successful plant-based products is knowing precisely what consumers are looking for. That’s why our CSI teams around the world work tirelessly to explore consumers’ changing preferences and priorities, helping us to stay one step ahead of trends and develop locally relevant, consumer-loved experiences.
