Awaken your customer’s senses with plant-based ingredients.


60% are interested in trying new sensory experiences.

Enjoying and connecting through good food is one of the binding factors that people around the world have in common. The importance of shared experiences is invaluable for relationships, and people will always find ways to enjoy such pleasurable moments through food. Even when today’s prices in the majority of food categories have been hit with inflation, there is always a way to tickle your senses.

An additional challenge for the industry is the flexitarian trend that continues to inspire consumers to include plant-based meals into their eating routine; as long as it can be done without compromising on taste or texture. With BENEO’s ingredients, that consumer need can be answered. Let us inspire you.

Roll into the world of meat-free snacks.


More than 1 in 4 global consumers call themselves flexitarians.

They want to embrace plant-based food in their lives on a regular basis. It’s a lifestyle choice that’s winning over consumers’ heart by offering a healthier life for themselves, and most of all, improving matters for the planet and animals.

The only wall they hit is that many plant-based solutions currently on the market are less tasty and rarely offer the same texture as the regular products. BENEO’s food scientists have risen to the challenge with implementing the technical advantages of our functional ingredients to their best. We deliver on the original textures of good food that can tickle all your consumers’ senses.

BENEO’s ingredient Meatless® wheat flakes offer flexitarians the choice to indulge on a vegan option that provides a meat-like texture and taste. Our recipe of vegan snack balls is the perfect sharing treat for your consumers and their loved ones. Serve up some cosy happiness on a plant-based plate.
