History

For over 20 years we have been shaping the taste experience with our confectionery and bakery solutions. From traditional ingredients, to increasingly innovative ones, we develop consistently with you. We commenced our journey into the world of taste back in 1995, when Credin Polska was established as a division of Danish Palsgaard Industri, famous for the production of emulsifiers and stabilizers used in the food industry.

In September 2002, Credin Polska and other Credin affiliates in Europe joined the Norwegian capital group ORKLA, contributing to the resources of Orkla Food Ingredients, a leading producer and distributor of bakery and confectionery additives, present mainly in Norway and on the Scandinavian peninsula.

Our goal has always been to develop, discover and respond to our customers’ needs, to strengthen the competitive position of our partners so that they can be ready for the growing consumer needs. We aspire to make creations that are liked and appreciated and will enchant their recipients with their appearance, taste, aroma, and texture.

In January 2003, the logo of our company was transformed into a symbol resembling in shape and colour a grain matured in full sun and a loaf of bread. In 2017 the logo evolved, we simplified it and gave it a more modern look, in line with current trends. This is also a proof that we remain open to both product and communication trends. And we want to invariably inspire you with this innovation.

Credin’s Research and Development department is an extremely powerful unit that takes the following aspects into consideration when designing new concepts:

  • product trends, nutritional value
  • nutrition declarations (e.g. source of fibre, protein)
  • marketing trends, consumer expectations
  • custom tailored projects matching the potential of customers
  • refreshing traditional products in a Clean Label version

Following the dynamically changing market, we respond to the needs of diverse customer groups. We take a holistic approach to projects, taking into account both nutritional expectations, elimination of unwanted ingredients (like gluten for example), and ethical considerations (products for vegetarians, vegans). We have something good for everyone. We offer solutions:

  • for vegetarians, vegans
  • for diabetics with low GI
  • gluten free products
  • products including superfoods
  • products containing valuable vitamins, minerals and micro elements (iron, zinc, potassium, magnesium)

Purchasing decisions are made by the consumer basing primarily on sensory aspects, so when creating products, we also pay attention to their features in this regard. We present the application as it would look on the store shelf, in the final version. Not only does the nutritional value matter, but also:

  • look, aroma
  • form, texture
  • finishing, extra ingredients
  • packaging
  • logo, slogan
  • declarations, distinguishing features
  • labels
  • display stands
