‘Nedertarwe’ (Dutch wheat), please up close
Nederwheat is grain from Dutch soil and is sustainably cultivated by certified and progressive farmers according to strict guidelines. What was considered unthinkable until recently, high-quality baking wheat from the Netherlands, has been realized by Royal Koopmans with a fine example of chain innovation. Dutch wheat grown sustainably by farmers for a fair price offers benefits for all links in the chain: the farmer, the miller, the baker and the consumer.

Plant-based dairy: from innovation to perfection
Plant-based dairy is fast becoming a mature product category. This means that innovation is not only aimed at developing the perfect product, but also at developing the optimal process. Using the application of cultures and enzymes in plant-based dairy, DSM illustrates a typical example of chain innovation. On the one hand, it responds to the need for efficiency and cost reduction by simplifying the process. And on the other hand, to further refine the taste of plant-based dairy through consumer insight studies.
