EXBERRY® is the world's best-selling Colouring Foods brand. With more than 400 different shades the colourful concentrates cover nearly all hues of the rainbow and provide the largest colour range on the market. For nearly every food category the desired nuance and intensity can be achieved. EXBERRY® is produced by GNT Group, the pioneer and global innovation leader in Colouring Foods, founded in Aachen (Germany) in 1978.
The EXBERRY® products are made exclusively from fruit, vegetables and edible plants, which are processed solely with gentle physical methods such as pressing, chopping and filtering. Artificial additives are not used. The concentrates are edible at all stages of production. By using them, manufacturers can meet the globally increasing demand of consumers for attractive but natural foods and beverages. In addition, EXBERRY® concentrates are suitable for the production of vegetarian, kosher as well as halal products and are also available in organic quality.
Thanks to their high stability, EXBERRY® products, which are suitable for water-, fat- and oil-based recipes, are used in a wide variety of food. The scope of applications ranges from confectionery, snacks, dairy and bakery products to ice cream, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages.
EXBERRY® concentrates are used by about 1,200 food and drink manufacturers from nearly 70 countries – including seven of the ten biggest food and beverage manufacturers in the world. Over 25 billion servings of food per year are already coloured with GNT concentrates. Thanks to consumers’ constantly increasing health consciousness and new legal regulations, GNT expects that in the long term Colouring Foods will become the industry standard.
To ensure the highest level of quality and transparency, GNT controls the entire value chain – from the selection of the seeds to the final concentrates. EXBERRY® products are manufactured exclusively at the GNT facilities in Mierlo (The Netherlands) and Heinsberg (Germany). About 80 percent of the used raw materials are cultivated within a 200 kilometre radius of the production sites. The cultivation and harvesting are monitored by GNT’s own agricultural engineers. Due to the strict control of the supply chain and the development of innovative processing technologies, GNT can guarantee delivery capacity and quality of its EXBERRY® concentrates independent of season and harvest.
