Ruitenberg spotlight


Hoewel we het liefst persoonlijk kennis willen maken met al onze klanten, gunnen we u via deze rubriek graag ook een digitaal kijkje in onze keuken. Zodat u ons alvast een beetje leert kennen.

Zo willen we u op de hoogte houden van nieuwe ontwikkelingen en trends op voedingsgebied, voor zover die raken aan onze activiteiten in de keten. Verder vindt u hier aankondigingen en (pers)berichten over samenwerkingsverbanden met kennisinstituten of over onze aanwezigheid op vakbeurzen zoals de IBA en de IFFA. Vanzelfsprekend delen we met alle plezier artikelen en verslagen over nieuwe ontwikkelingen of toepassingen. En af en toe vindt u hier een bijdrage van een van onze collega’s over een van onze functionele toepassingen.

We wensen u veel leesplezier!

Official opening production site Ruinerwold

19 september 2019

Recently, we celebrated the official opening of our new production site in Ruinerwold. A very special day indeed!

The new building definitely is an amazing, sustainable and spacious one, offering us a flexible way of managing production processes.

At the opening ceremony a ‘last stone’ was put into place – a provisional one, so technically, it was the second last one. Three members of the 4th generation of the Ruitenberg family executed this operation to perfection.

IFFA 2019

6 juni 2019

Dear IFFA-visitor,

Thank you for joining us! It has definitely been our pleasure talking to you and letting you taste some of the new concepts we presented at this year’s IFFA. Like our vegetarian nuggets, for instance. We hope you enjoyed the experience of a unique vegetarian snack moment at our typically Dutch ‘snack wall’.

However, maybe you missed the opportunity to attend the IFFA this time. Or maybe you would like to know whether we can offer some other possibilities to help you developing a new product or improving an existing one.

New factory Ruinerwold nearly completed

28 mei 2019

After a construction period of a mere eight months, we recently witnessed the completion of our new production site in Ruinerwold. At the same time, the first bee hotel proofed to be ready for use.

The new factory turns out to be great, so we can hardly wait to start working there. In the upcoming months, however, we still have to move both equipment and supplies from the old building to the new one.

Construction of production location Ruinerwold makes steady progress

5 december 2018

In recent years, the production and storage area in Ruinerwold started to become a bit tight. If we want to continue developing our business operations here, we need more space. Thanks to this new building, which is emerging behind the existing unit, we will have a larger, more efficiently equipped production area at our disposal. And that should keep us going for a while!

Two months ago, the green light was given to start construction.

Did you notice the rising popularity of vegetables? How they are processed and consumed in different ways lately, such as wraps, pizza crusts, snacks, etcetera?
We felt inspired by this trend and started developing our ‘Vegetaballs’ , a snack concept based on co-extrusion of a vegetable dough with a tasteful filling.

Which vegetable would you like to see transformed into a Vegetaball? Feel free to come and discover the possibilities with us!

8 mei 2018

Another anniversary for Ruitenberg: 80 years ago, Willem Ruitenberg started an agency in potato starch and pectin. The rest may be history, however, we couldn’t have achieved this milestone without the commitment and enthusiasm of all our employees.

Early April, we celebrated this remarkable anniversary together with employees and family members. Busses took all of us to Oberhausen, where we enjoyed the OVO show by Cirque du Soleil. Such an amazing show with incredible performances of the acrobats and such lovely costumes and staging!
