Malt extract is the widely used application for nutritional & more responsible products in the drinks, food and health industry.  Market trends and consumers needs show that health awareness, sustainability and clean label, to name just a few, have an increasing relevance amongst a growing population. We have noticed that malt extracts are perfect for this purpose as it is a naturally produced product to provide a green business model, while it does not need many additives to deliver a variety of beverages.

Besides these developments we have also noted more opportunities in higher added value solutions, which we would like to explore with you. If you have similar convictions and you would like to explore if we could co-create a higher valued application, please contact us.
