In 2013, Nutricia Research established itself in India. Our R&D team in India works primarily to new product innovation and pipeline development, supporting local manufacture, building regional science and technology networks.
Our key focus areas are on the brand Protinex, a 58-year old heritage brand that helps improve the nutritional status across a wide range of age and target groups through protein supplementation; and also to help introduce the more specialised products in the global Nutricia portfolio.
Being situated locally also enables accelerated innovation, as R&D is closely attuned to the local needs, not just of the consumer, but also the external environment, such as regulations, cost structures and policies.
Having an R&D team based in India ensures that every new product and/or package introduced is centred around the nutritional status, habits and preferences of the Indian consumer. For example, we have worked extensively on the development of products with ethnic flavours that are loved by Indians, but may not necessarily be known around the world.
