About Nutricia
Research Utrecht

By bringing employees from different backgrounds and with complementary scientific and technological expertise together, we create a creative, high-spirit powerhouse to spur innovation. Our 600 employees who work at this location are committed to deliver evidence-based specialised nutrition to infants, pregnant women, patients and the elderly.

The building opened in 2013 and was designed with a high degree of sustainability in mind. The centre offers state of the art facilities, such as science and technology laboratories, a pilot plant for small scale production and a sensory & consumers lab where consumer testing takes place. This to ensure high quality products that meet specific nutritional needs of our vulnerable groups and a better consumer experience.

The centre is part of a growing life sciences community on the Utrecht Science Park which includes hospitals, a university, a higher technical school and companies.

The organisation itself has adopted a modern way of working that allows employees a great deal of flexibility to organise their activities in a way that best suits their projects. This way of working includes modern technological tools that allow employees to work from various locations both in the centre and elsewhere.
