Ingredients that can support fortification, functionality or positive nutritional benefits are of interest


We offer a broad range of delicious, high-quality snacks - from indulgent bites to wholesome bars. We want to make sure our range keeps satisfying the diverse needs of millions of consumers around the world. We are increasing our focus on well-being which involves a broader, more holistic approach – one that takes in people's emotional and functional needs. That's why we keep innovating, renovating and extending our range of snacks to satisfy consumers' current and changing well-being needs. We are keen to explore new ingredient technologies across different wellbeing dimensions that can contribute to the overall physical and mental health of our consumers.
