Spin Off in the Food Industry: Challenges and Chances on the Example of Savanna Ingredients

In the food industry sugar and calorie reduction is one of the key challenges since many years. The German sugar producer Pfeifer & Langen GmbH & Co. KG decided to contribute to this trend by own innovative product concepts. In 2018, Savanna Ingredients GmbH was founded as a spin off to create an environment for successful development and marketing of low caloric sugars. This talk will look at the experiences Savanna has made so far when starting a new business with a new product in the food industry.
