Our Services Cover Three Major Criteria

1/ Nutritional Specifications

We develop and manufacture products to specific nutritional requirements.

We have worked in partnership with our clients to develop complex and technical products in the field of Foods for Special Medical Purposes (FSMP). These products are supplied to the national health services of the UK and Ireland. These products are for clinical use to treat malnutrition and other serious clinical conditions.

We have several new projects in development targeted at health conditions like diabetes and children’s nutrition. Our new product development department is working hand in hand with our clients to bring solutions targeted at providing real innovation in nutrition.

We have helped formulate sports nutrition products to comply with the requirements of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). These sports nutrition products are formulated to meet the import registration requirements of EMEA. We produce sports nutrition to the very highest standards anywhere in the world.

2/ Commercial Specifications

We develop and manufacture products to specific unit price points.

We are commercially focused. We work with clients to ensure that the product we provide meets the margin requirements of each of the channel partners. This is the first step in our development process. We take the selling price to the end consumer and look at what the cost price needs to be to make this work financially. Only then do we go about finding a technical solution.

3/ Global Nutritional Compliance

We research and operate to geo-specific legal and compliance standards.

Every region and country has specific food safety and compliance regulations. A key element in our development service is to ensure the product we supply is capable of being exported to all of your intended markets now and in the future. This requires us to meticulously research the ingredients, packaging claims and labelling to ensure compliance. Because standards change on a regular basis, Complex Nutrition ensure we stay up to date and continually review the requirements of each target market. China is one of the more challenging markets for compliance. We currently produce several milk powder-based products for this market.

 

Complex Nutrition has been contract blending a range of Gluten-Free mixes that Inno V has developed since 2013 and we have been thoroughly happy with their level of service particularly their allergen management systems which is so important for our customers.
