Fillings, toppings and sauces

Co-extrusion fillings and fillings, toppings and sauces for plant-based products.

We’ve seen roughly the same trends persisting for years, often in a new form, with different nuances, but they are all about natural, green, clean label, tasty, indulgent, safe, trustworthy – you name it. We at Vaessen-Schoemaker love to be ahead of these trends. But one trend is common of all of them – changing eating habits. In line with this development, we have created new concepts for the growing convenience and plant-based industry. Concepts for a co-extrusion line or a lamination line, which create a tasteful product (like filled meatballs) and above all ensures a stable filling. Besides the co-extrusion fillings, we have also developed several fillings, toppings and sauces for plant-based products. Add value to your product with these concepts and your products will be distinct from the majority in the market.

Co-extrusion – the way of making differentiating concepts

Multi-component food is an excellent way to meet surging demand in snacking and grazing concepts.

We see intense interest in filled products. One example is filled meatballs, whether from meat or from a plant-based dough. Sauce inside the meat ball: creating endless ways to make new products. It’s a challenging process though: shrinking properties of meat, a sauce at the right temperature, nicely oozing when cutting, not leaking. Vaessen-Schoemaker just created the ideal system for the meat, the filling, and for co extrusion and lamination lines.
