Cornelius launches creative centre

Manufacturer and distributor of speciality chemicals, additives and ingredients Cornelius Group has demonstrated what it says is its commitment to forward-thinking innovation with the launch of a new creative centre at its Bishop’s Stortford headquarters.

The facility features a contemporary suite available to host workshops, seminars and meetings complementing the company’s additional investment in a care products laboratory and a health and nutrition kitchen at the site.

Designed to host joint development project workshops with partners and customers, the creative suite will offer access to the Cornelius Innovation & Application Support (IAS) team. Technical experts, samples, technology and information will be on hand to customers looking to optimise their new product development processes.

“Our vision for the creative centre is that it will become a conduit for creative growth and allow our customers to benefit from added value product development solutions,” said Cornelius CEO, Darren Spiby. “It presents an exciting opportunity for our customers and internal teams to experience an efficient, effective and collaborative innovation approach. Our IAS teams will be responsible for delivering ideation, sampling and proof of concept work that complements new product development. Their expertise, combined with our creative suite and laboratory facilities, will deliver targeted, advanced innovation results.”

In the newly designed and equipped health and nutrition kitchen, Cornelius food technologists can test recipes, explore new ingredients, create demonstrations and develop or reformulate products. As well as working on customer specific briefs, the IAS team will produce solutions for core markets, which include bakery, beverage, dairy, confectionery, meat, supplements and sports nutrition.
