The consumer’s path to a balanced lifestyle
The body’s basic needs can be met with a healthy and balanced diet. However, age-related needs, physiological changes or an active choice of diet can result in the consumer experiencing deficiencies in their diet. These need to be supplemented from another source.
Procudan are experts in ingredients and packaging for food supplements. We work closely with our customers to develop the ideal solution that produces the quality products consumers demand. We know all about the daily vitamin pill that provides extra vitamins and minerals to the general population. But more and more consumers are choosing a lifestyle in which excluding specific foods creates a new need. They want supplements and substitutes that are easy to incorporate into a busy life - and that taste good.
This presents opportunities for new concepts and product lines that address the challenges associated with rapidly changing trends and the getting right nutritional value, while at the same time appealing to consumers.
And there are many questions that need answering:
- How can potential health benefits be exploited and communicated?
- What are the current trends – and what trends are up and coming?
- When is it time to try something new in terms of taste, appearance and texture in the end product?
- How can shelf-life, stability and nutritional content be improved?
- How can recipe and processing costs be simplified?
- How can packaging provide optimum protection of the end product?
- How can packaging design be made attractive to and adapted to the consumer?

How we develop value
A healthy lifestyle starts at birth
In the earliest years, the body develops more than at any other time in our lives, which is why a diet that meets those changing needs is so important. This applies to both infant formula and weaning foods.
Procudan are experts in quality, nutritional ingredients that provide the necessary energy. We work with our customers to find the right combination of ingredients to create unique end products for each developmental stage.

Good taste can be added
Dietary supplements and other supplements are often created for reasons other than good taste.
But good taste can be added to mask a less desirable taste. There are a variety of approaches. For instance, cocoa, flavourings or spice mixes can be used to camouflage a less desirable taste and/or smell.
On the lookout for
Dietary supplements aim to treat and prevent vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Depending on the physical form and desired function declaration requirements can be high. Added protein, for instance for building muscle mass, can be based on concentrated whey protein, while ‘super foods’ can be based on ingredients like cranberries or chia seeds. In both bars and snack products, consistency and, of course, taste are vital.
Explore our selection of ingredients that are appropriate as food supplements. We believe in co-creation to add value and produce solutions that meet consumers demands – also for end-product packaging.
We guarantee ingredients that are GFSI certified and produced according to GMP requirements.

We co-create solutions within dietary supplements and medicines for pets and livestock.
Well-designed packaging adapted to the end product
The choice of packaging is always based on the end product. Barrier characteristics and the right protection are crucial, while design and well-considered ‘to-go’ solutions can make all the difference for snacks, bars and many baby meals. Regardless of packaging type – paper, plastic or moulded plastic – end products in powdered form place high demands on the solution to retain their function, taste and smell.
Customised packaging solutions are also an advantage in production. Processes can be improved with well-considered packaging, for instance by scaling up the size of the packaging so forklifts can handle the heavy work efficiently.
The customer’s needs and wishes are always assessed in detail along with the consumer’s experience. We are experts in identifying the right packaging solutions, and we work closely with our customers to create the unique end products that consumers demand.
