create future eats

We support startups and companies towards the creation of new food products impacting the future generation.

Let's create better food together

We are here to render food innovation and product development accessible to every company and startup on a mission to save the planet. We stand up in favor of ethical and healthy food development, providing technical insights and support at each stage of the new product development journey. We do not aim simply to make products riding the wave of the latest market trends. Instead, we want to transform the current (outdated) food system and support companies and their game-changing new food projects.

Your perfect partner for disruptive food innovations

With the human population reaching 9.6 billion people by 2050 and global warming rising every year, food products need to be reimagined. At Developeat, we support revolutionary food development projects with a multidisciplinary R&D and NPD assistance tailor-made for truly new food products in the field of plant-based, cell-based and alt-protein space.

How we support your new product development journey

NPD 

 Managment 

We are top-class when it comes to managing complex NPD projects. Our cross-functional expertises allow the coordination of the whole NPD pipeline, from early stages of product conceptualization to launch                                                

 

Recipe Prototyping

We welcome purpose-driven food startups at our NPD laboratory, where we can develop new recipes, test new concepts and create the best food prototypes fitting your vision.                

 

Scientific Research

We established a partnership with the Food Quality & Design group of Wageningen University & Research to render our service top-notch performing a wide range of analysis to support your latest NPD projects.                      

Production Upscaling

Our qualified network of ingredient suppliers, co-manufacturers and partners ensure that each step of NPD, from product ideation to launch, is executed properly, on time and at reasonable costs.

Case Studies

At Developeat, every NPD project is different. We tailor every step of the process in order to fits our clients need and maximize the project success. Check out a few examples of what we have been doing so far.

We developed the first-of-its-kind chocolate protein spread with 3 time less fat that the conventional ones!

THE NEXT GENERATION OF PLANT-BASED PIZZAS

We developed a wide range of nutritionally complete pizzas fully vegan, toppings included!

AN AWARD-WINNING CRACKER MADE WITH CRICKETS

We developed a super sustainable, high protein, wildly tasting snacks made with insect flour (yes, bugs!).

A NEW WAVE OF PLANT-BASED MEAT PRODUCTS

We developed a new range of plant-based meat products with a clean label and very few ingredients, all seasoned with the characteristic Italian taste!

AN NEW BREAD FORMULA SMARTER FOR SMARTER RETAIL

We developed a new range of partially baked frozen sandwich bread with unique functionality which allows employees at the stores to simply warm up the product quickly before serving.

NOVEL STRATEGIES FOR CREAMIER PLANT-BASED DAIRY PRODUCTS

By applying top-notch technologies in the field of dairy science, we co-developed novel vegan milk formulas with enhanced never-seen-before creaminess and mouthfeel
