IN­NO­VA­TION IN THE FRUIT SEG­MENT

The development of new products and innovations represent an integral part of AGRANA's fruit preparation business. Owing to short cycles of the life of the product of fruit yoghurt, it is important to be able to react quickly to changes in consumer behavior, to recognize development potential and to set new trends. 

It goes without saying that AGRANA's top priority is to support its customers by providing:

  • a perfect service,
  • a pro-active approach to innovations
  • And assisting them in the development of their product portfolio.

AGRANA’s international organization and structure with 52 production facilities (37 facilities in the fruit area) on five continents makes it possible for the company to support its customers both with a global market vision and with local market know-how.  The combination between international trends and local market know-how outlines an advantage in competition and makes it possible for AGRANA to be a significant partner in the area of innovation.

Current trends in the fruit preparation business:

  • "100% natural": the most important trend in saturated markets
  • "Health and wellness“: preparations with natural, but also with functional, ingredients
  • "A treat": preparations for desserts that provide a moment of peace in stressful times
  • "Social & environmental compatibility“: certified ingredients for use in Fair Trade products and for carbon dioxide and water footprints
  • "Functional Food“: preparations that have an additional use
