Craft, creativity & passion
These are the key drivers for our success as we explore new ways of doing things and innovative ideas that will inspire and delight our consumers worldwide.
Innovation to inspire & delight
Our consumers in both mature and growing economies are very sensitive to new experiences and concepts. We want to be the ones who pleasantly surprise them with new products, new flavours, new packaging and new product concepts that will help them enjoy "sweeter" moments in their lives.
This is why research and development plays such an important strategic role at Perfetti Van Melle. Our central laboratories in Lainate (Italy), supported by local laboratories in various countries, are constantly researching new chewing gum and candy formulations as well as qualitative improvements to existing products.
