Looking for a technology to reduce sugar and fat in bakery and pastry-making


A Spanish SME that produces cakes, biscuits, nougat, and Christmas specialties, is looking for a technology/system that allows reducing the amount of sugar and fat in the final products without reducing the organoleptic properties. The technology should be applicable at an industrial level. The company is looking for a technical cooperation agreement.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

The sought technology/products should allow reducing the sugar and fat in the pastry products. It should be applicable at industrial level and, if possible, it should reduce/remove the addition of chemical/artificial additives.

Partner sought

- Type of partner sought: Company/Academic researcher - Specific area of activity of the partner: Food - Task to be performed: The partner should provide with either new ingredients for pastry or with a technology/system to reduce fat and sugar without modifying the organoleptic properties. The sought partner should be able to test the products in laboratory and offer measurable proof of the technology success.


A Spanish company whose activity is the production of pastry and bakery, including some typically Christmas sweets, would like to find a system/technology in order to reduce the fat and/or sugar in the final products. The company, which has more than 25 years of activity, has a commitment with its clients to meet their demands and to continuously attempt to improve its service and quality. In this way, and following the current trends, the company is looking for new systems to reduce the sugar and fat, as well as removing (or at least reducing) the chemical/artificial additives. This reduction/removal should be done without modifying the organoleptic properties of the products. Currently, the company uses maltitol to replace sugar in their products but its goal is not only replacing sugar but also reducing the amount of sweetener used. There is no current replacement for the fat, yet. The company sells its products in many European countries, so the offered technology/system should be applicable at least at European level (i.e. it should follow European regulations concerning food products). The company is open to any type of agreement but it’s looking especially for a technical cooperation one, where the sought partner offers such technology and both may cooperate to test it in their products.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
