Product Development & Customizing
Crafting successful products with creativity and know-how
The global food market demands high agility from all protagonists along the value chain. Continually modified customer requirements and trends, new production conditions or legal amendments make it necessary to regularly develop and adapt products and implement innovative ideas. This is the challenge Henry Lamotte Food has taken on. Utilising the expertise of all business units we have consistently mastered such tests to the benefit of our customers. Day in and day out, our competent and experienced support in product development and in the refinement of raw commodities is tried and tested by our customers. Every day, we prove that we are a capable and committed partner in the supply of preserved, dried and deep-frozen foods.
The essential thing for us is to always keep our eyes and ears open and maintain a curiosity for flavours whilst closely observing not only the agricultural development of our producers and the requirements of our consumers but also industrial developments in food production. Our buyers regularly visit all our producers on site to gather inspiration and new ideas.
Due to our strong international partners along the supply chain, we can ideally accompany the implementation of new product developments and adapt them to the needs of the market. We know exactly who is in the position to turn an idea into a finished product worldwide and who is able to comply with the strictest possible requirements. We ensure the expertise of our partners by implementing audits, requiring certifications and many other measures. At Henry Lamotte Food you will always experience a dynamic range of products which we constantly review and orient to the needs of our customers.
Individual expert advice
Strong production partners
Refined raw goods enable new ideas
Whether exciting salads with black beans or jackfruit or new modern vegetable spreads or "Sweety Drops" as pizza toppings – Henry Lamotte Food has the right ingredients or can locate and refine them for your production. We work with our partners to adapt the products to your requirements in our refinement process. For example, we can alter recipes to improve shelf life, adjust the salt content, for example from caper paste, or remove preservatives.
In terms of quality, together with various contract producers, we can also individually respond to your requirements and, for example, have pulses or cereals refined by adding additional cleaning steps and thereby enhance purity. Likewise, the examination for foreign objects has an important place in our refinement process. For many products we use both laser sorters as well as X-ray scanners.
Our work includes:
- Identification of trends and product innovations on a global level among others via retail store checks
- Research in new products, including functionalities and legal implications
- Development of new forms of treatment and processing, blends, preservation methods, refinement and packaging in cooperation with customers, suppliers and contract producers
- Documentation of product development with subsequent product specifications and production instructions
- Individual expert advice, provision of samples, drafting customer specifications, supplier information
- Assurance of certified production
- Regular audits, also jointly with our customers at the producers when required
- Presentation of new products at trade fairs
