From Trend to Product

Knowing about trends is good; successfully catering to them is better. Food producers will find all the expertise and ingredients they need for this at Bösch Boden Spies. Our developers always have their finger on the pulse, monitoring markets worldwide and creating brand-new innovations.

What are prunes doing in tomato ketchup? Quite simply: making it healthier, and consumers happy. Prunes from our Californian partner Sunsweet combine a variety of functionalities and can, for instance, help reduce the use of sugar, salt, and fats in ketchup. Their many positive effects enable producers to achieve spotless ‘clean labeling.’

Besides, it’s easy for consumers to comprehend that prunes are healthy. Knowing and understanding what’s inside – this is precisely the top food industry trend in 2018 according to the market research firm Innova Market Insights. And other trends of the new year can be systematically implemented with Bösch Boden Spies ingredients and ideas.

Fresh colors and unfamiliar flavor adventures

Consumers are increasingly sensitive to the visual appearance of their food. In 2018 the color effect will be in focus more than ever. For the experts at Bösch Boden Spies, this development is no surprise and the selection of persuasively colored fruit ingredients is correspondingly large. Our cranberry-blueberry smoothie, for example, is a captivating, rich red, while our acerola-goldenberry nectar glows a bright yellow. In addition to color, our fruits also functionally enhance every food: acerola, for example, is rich in vitamin C, while cranberries add lots of fiber, vitamins and important antioxidants.

The Bösch Boden Spies portfolio offers an enormous breadth, giving producers the opportunity for a wide variety of product developments – which is exactly what will be in demand in 2018. Innova Market Insights calls the consumer’s desire for culinary diversity ‘Bountiful choices.’ Here at Bösch Boden Spies, imaginative fruit, nut and vegetable combinations are already reality: a fruit juice with apple, prune, acerola and lime, for instance, or one of our various jams, such as acerola-goldenberry, cranberry-pecan, and tomato-goldenberry.
