Coloring Food
with Food since 1978 

Growing and processing fruits and vegetables to produce color ingredients for the food and beverage industry was not a familiar concept in 1978.  However, that is the year that GNT was founded in a tiny garage in Aachen, Germany. Long before the term “clean-label” had meaning or natural ingredients held serious commercial value, the strength and insight of GNT’s vision soon lead to larger facilities in both Germany and The Netherlands. Insight and vision have come to define GNT’s history of success.  

Growing consumer interest in natural ingredients, particularly color ingredients, has bolstered GNT’s continued success and expansion. As consumers increasingly look for natural and recognizable ingredients to feed themselves and their families, GNT’s foundation of using fruits, vegetables and edible plants for color, stands uniquely suited to meet that need. Today, GNT has facilities throughout the world, including Europe, North and South America, and Asia. Having pioneered the field of color ingredients made from edible fruits, vegetables and plants, and with more than 30 years of experience and continued innovation, GNT stands today as the clear market leader.

Growing Colours Worldwide

With strategic locations throughout the world, GNT can provide localised technical support along with first-class customer service. This allows us to work closely with our customers, drive innovation and develop tailor-made solutions.

GNT’s solutions are only as good as the products that we produce. It all starts

with the seeds. From the field to our factory, every measure is taken to ensure that the highest quality standards are met. GNT’s process of growing and processing our own raw materials enables us to keep tight quality control from one step to the next. This strategy results in products that are consistent in quality, supply availability and cost.
