GNT Group will be demonstrating how its plant-based, sustainable EXBERRY colours can help maximise product appeal at ProSweets 2024, which is running in Cologne, Germany from 28-31 January 2024.
The company’s EXBERRY colours are made from fruits, vegetables, and plants using physical processing methods such as chopping and boiling. Based on the concept of colouring food with food, the concentrates can deliver bright shades in almost any application while supporting clean and simple ingredient lists.
At the trade show, GNT will offer visitors the chance to sample rolled ice cream with confectionery toppings to demonstrate the possibilities with manufacturing with EXBERRY colours. The company’s experts will also be available throughout the event to provide insights into how plant-based colors can be used to meet specific project requirements.
“EXBERRY is a truly natural colouring solution that resonates perfectly with modern consumer preferences. Our innovative concentrates deliver vibrant shades with exceptional performance in all types of food and drink. We’re excited to give visitors the chance to see for themselves the power of our plant-based colours,” said Frederik Hoeck, Managing Director at GNT Group.
EXBERRY colours qualify for clean label declarations and are suitable for vegan, halal, and kosher diets. They are also produced in accordance with GNT’s sustainability criteria. The company has set out 17 targets to optimise its environmental and social impacts, including cutting the environmental footprint for EXBERRY product ranges by 25% by 2030.
Each year, the company publishes a sustainability report containing detailed information on its progress. For the 2023 report, it announced it managed to reduce its carbon intensity by 13% compared with 2020.
“As a family-owned company, we’re used to planning for the long term and we know only too well the importance of sustainability. We’re committed to minimising our carbon footprint and futureproofing EXBERRY supplies to help our customers create successful products for the next generation of consumers,” added Frederik Hoeck.
