How Ajinomoto Food Europe solutions and ingredients can reduce waste?
The manufacture of products can generate waste. Product offcuts, or waste, are among the highest costs for companies. Reducing it can allow manufacturers to increase their efficiency and reduce their costs. Depending on the product, Ajinomoto Foods Europe solutions and ingredients have solutions to improve the efficiency of the production line, which is why, for us, nothing is thrown away and everything is transformed. We prefer not to use the word ‘waste’ but ‘co-products’. One of the enzymatic actions that can be carried out by the ACTIVA range of Ajinomoto Foods Europe solutions and ingredients is the creation of a new product from the co-products of a previous one. This solution allows the company to open up its market to another target, new customers and consumers or to a new sector.

The creaminess that consumers perceive remains unchanged.
