The mission of our R&D department is to develop creative and innovative solutions for our oils and fats division and also for our chocolate, compounds and fillings division.

We develop ingredients to produce delicious food with a special focus on nutritional balance.
Our R&D organization
Our development managers combine a deep expertise of oils and fats with a deep cocoa knowledge.
In our well-equipped application and analytical labs we design unique oils and fats blends, chocolate, fillings and compounds.
Moreover, being part of the Fuji Oil Group's global R&D network, we have access to new products created within other parts of the Group. If desired our development managers adapt these products to meet the needs of our European customers or EU regulations.
For basic research, we work closely with the basic research teams at our Fuji Science and Innovation Centre located in Japan.
In our R&D department, our processes can be further optimized for refining and the modification of oils and fats as well as optimizing chocolate and fillings production.
Next to productivity, special attention is given to quality and safety and this is always carried out in close cooperation with our production, quality and engineering departments.
Our application managers are committed to providing in-depth technical support to our customers.
They work closely with our sales and development managers to find the best solution for our customers' technical requirements.
We always welcome customers to do trials together in our application lab.
