Your R&D Partner in Successful Food Innovations


TeamTastemakers is your R&D partner for the development of successful innovations and improvement of existing products in the food industry. Do you have good ideas but do not know how to realize them? TeamTastemakers is a team of experts in nutrition & innovations. We are happy to help you with our broad expertise, creativity and knowledge of the innovation process. We supplement what is missing in your organization!

The Team

An innovation chef, a marketer and two technologists

The four of us bring more than 100 years of work experience in innovations at medium and large food companies. This allows us to oversee all the different phases of innovation and enables us to bridge the gap between disciplines such as marketing, R&D and production. All to help you innovate successfully.

” Based on a good idea and clear concept, we work on a consistent translation into every aspect of the innovation: ingredients, recipe, taste, smell, texture, claims, technology, packaging, price, etc.”

It is not without reason that TeamTastemakers has Team first in the name. We enjoy working with people. Whether that is the management, a factory team, a start-up or a family at the table. We believe in the power of collaboration to achieve better innovations.

One of our main drivers is sustainability, not only in our working method, but also in the products we develop for example by limiting waste flows or developing methods to convert these waste flows into high-quality products.

The Innovation Lab

Not just a lab!

It’s a professional kitchen, a lab, a pilot plant, a greenhouse, a hatchery, a restaurant, a farm. The creative experts are people from our network and people we have often worked with before. Real specialists in their specific field, for example vegetarian food, organic farming, fermentation, meat substitutes, or international cuisine.

“In the “Innovation lab” we bring together professionals from different disciplines in order to inspire and challenge each other. A place where we can process our products, (test) produce, test with real consumers, gather insights, collect data, adjust, improve, etc.”
