Problem solving with a purpose

The purchases that consumers make shape trends that in turn, create markets. At Ingredion, we have a deep understanding of global trends and the challenges they pose to you as a manufacturer— such as simplifying labels, ensuring products delight the senses and helping consumers become and stay healthy. And, of course, optimising your costs and passing savings on to your consumers.

At Ingredion Idea Labs™ innovation centres around the world, we’re using science-based problem solving to help you overcome a wide range of challenges and deliver on-trend products that enable you to outshine your competition. Let’s get started. 

How do we do it? By knowing what your consumers want, based on our global insights:

  • Clean and simple products, with no additives
  • An extra nutritional boost for healthy living
  • Quality and convenience in the midst of their busy lives
  • Memorable positive sensory experiences
  • Affordability of the products they want

Using our CONSUMER-CENTRICITY™ design approach and building on our research platforms, we answer these needs with a broad range of ingredient innovations designed to address your health and nutrition, textural, sweetness, affordability and labelling challenges. We’re also breaking new ground in biomaterial solutions in four targeted segments: bioplastics, glass fibre, personal care, and fabric and home care.
