As part of its focus on Turkey, the Middle East and North Africa, Bunge Loders Croklaan (BLC), a world leader in edible oils and fats, is expanding its worldwide innovation network with its first Creative Studio in the region to serve its customers in the region. The studio will be adjacent to the Bunge Turkey office in Istanbul.

“Our goal is to be close to our customers and work with them to streamline product development and time-to-market,” says Renee Boerefijn, Director of Innovation EMEA for Bunge Loders Croklaan. “Whether pioneering products with a balanced nutritional profile or creating more indulgent treats, our Creative Studios help our customers stay ahead of the competition. A number of new studios are in the pipeline, all designed to guide our regional customers toward effective translation of ideas into winning new products.”
