Consumers actively seek natural ingredients. According to consumer research, natural claims on the front of packaging positively influence their purchasing decisions.

41% of European consumers see “natural/all natural” as the most appealing label on the front of food and drink packaging and 30% see “no artificial ingredients” as the most appealing. 64% of consumers would even consider switching brands for a natural/all natural claim.

Our NOVATION® range can help support natural claims for your products.


Consumers increasingly want minimally processed products made from a simple list of recognised ingredients. In fact, 79% of consumers find it important that they recognise a product’s ingredients.

We can help you get the functionality you need from fewer ingredients and build consumer confidence in your brand.

Clean Labels

When your products are made from simple ingredients people understand – without things perceived as undesirable – you build trust from the moment they read the label.

Collaborate with us for insights on consumer perception of ingredients. For instance, we know which ingredients consumers think of as “familiar”, such as flour, and which remain “unfamiliar”. You can formulate exciting products with all the taste and texture consumers expect – and nothing they want to avoid.
