By investing in a Food Application Kitchen in Guntramsdorf, Austria, Brenntag CEE has taken one further step towards improved customer service.
Since the initial set-up in the first quarter of 2012, various projects have been undertaken; basic raw material tests to specific application tests, through to development of final recipes. This provides added value to the sales team and particularly to the customers regarding selection
and application of raw materials for foodstuffs.
Using a combination of raw materials from the Brenntag portfolio, creative and efficient solutions, far beyond single supplier suggestions, can be delivered to the customer. Additionally, the
possibility of doing basic tests in the Application Kitchen can save the customer precious time.
The equipment in the Application Kitchen was chosen for its versatile application capabilities. Basic processes of various industries can be reproduced on a small-scale (see equipment and applications overview).
A tasting and presentation room attached to the Application Kitchen offers the opportunity for active participation in activities in the kitchen and can be used for demonstrations and training for the sales team and for customers.
