Through in-depth understanding of dairy science and the yoghurt system, we’re able to optimise our dairy ingredients to deliver dairy nutrition with superior texture and taste. Our success is centred on a collaborative working model, establishing customer needs and delivering our solutions from our regional development centres.
Fonterra’s cultured ingredients are centred on five key trends:
Better for you: Less fat, less sugar in regular products
Fewer Ingredients: Removing additives e.g. artificial colour and flavour, gelatine, stabilisers
To assist manufacturing in the removal of artificial ingredients, Fonterra has developed a range of more natural ingredients.
Sensory Indulgence: Rich, indulgent products for new eating occasions
To improve existing products or create new ones, Fonterra has a new range of indulgent ingredients. These provide a rich, superior taste and texture.
Zero Fat, Zero Compromise: Consumers looking to food for convenient nutritious solutions to reduce calorie consumption
This involves products for weight management for example, a range of light and creamy ingredients to deliver creamy texture to low fat yoghurt.
High Protein, Low Fat
Yogurts in low fat, high protein systems are the fastest growing product segment in the category. Fonterra has developed solutions to formulate >10 per cent protein Greek style, stirred spoonable or drinking yoghurts with low astringency or sourness.
Reducing Costs: Price pressure on core yoghurts with little differentiation
Fonterra has developed a range of ingredients to improve productivity.
