Helping the food industry make healthier choices.
Consumers are increasingly mindful of the nutritional quality of the food they eat, where ingredients come from, and the environmental impact of their choices. iNewtrition exists to help companies bridge the gap between emerging consumer needs and new product development, accelerating the innovation process and feasibility of healthier, functional, and sustainable offers to the market.
Our consulting services create solutions and insights with R&D and NPD to support professionals and investors in the food, beverages, and specialized nutrition industries with the technical knowledge and seniority they need.
iNewtrition’s goal is to address innovation with a consumer-centric approach by working with start-ups and established brands to enhance health and wellness in industrialized food without compromising convenience and vital sensory attributes that create pleasurable experiences. We believe that new food technology can allow companies to make more conscious and sustainable choices concerning innovation, creating shared value with customers while caring for the environment.

Global network of industry experts
Innovation as a Service
Companies of all sizes and budgets can count on our consulting support to access curated technical information or specific food-tech skills and accelerate innovation without increasing headcount.
Working together on challenging scientific projects, developing cutting-edge formulas, or optimizing manufacturing processes are some of the ways we can contribute to your business. From technical developments in your product portfolio or even “translating” complex scientific papers into easy-to-understand, non-technical language, think of us as your technical partner when things get too complicated, or you need extra R&D resources to get things done.
You can learn more about a specific ingredient, market, or food technology and get senior advice on your innovation challenges.
We can work together to create or accelerate projects, develop a new product, or change formulations.
You can have our continuous support to work on multiple projects as if we were part of your internal team.
