, Europe’s largest sugar producer and a leading German food group, announced at FI Europe on Oct. 30 the creation of a new Functional Food Group – Beneo. Orafti, Palatinit and Remy will form the newly created Functional Food Group, Beneo, and be known individually as Beneo-Orafti, Beneo-Remy and Beneo-Palatinit. “Connecting nutrition and health” is the group’s united mission, Südzucker AG says.

The R&D team will develop prototypes of Asian and ‘Western’ foods and beverages to demonstrate how Tate & Lyle’s ingredients work in these applications.
