Health & Wellness as international mega trends in dairy and convenience products

Health and nutrition are two very popular topics - food products (ranges) with health-driven claims are flourishing in every supermarket today. We are not divulging any trade secrets when saying that in the future, continuingdouble-digit growth rates are predicted for the health and wellness market. In order to furtheraddress this trend with respect to the dairy and fine food segment in particular, HAHN has launchedits new range: Health Solutions@HAHN.

Throughout many years, while developing high quality products with respect to stability, texture and mouthfeel, HAHN food experts have also designed many product ranges for the wellness and health segment. Depending on requirements, these products can offer considerable fat reduction and/or declarations free from ingredients such as egg, wheat, gluten and/or animal protein.

To supplement this product category, Health Solutions@HAHN offer blends that combine a stabiliser component with health-focused ingredients in order to add fibre and/or sweetener blends to a product.
