RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT: OUR KEY FOR YOUR SUCCESS

Since its establishment in 1967, Gum Base Co. has always focused on R&D, and it is our commitment to invest even more into this area in the years to come. This enables us to offer a unique package of know how to our clients, esuring them state of the art gumbase and an unreachable support in solving all kinds of issues related to the production of chewing gum.

BASIC RESEARCH

Understanding gumbase ingredients and their impact on the properties of the gumbase and finally the chewing gum remains a never ending challenge. With our team and in collaboration with Universities and Research Institutes we invest amongst other areas in:

  • Rheological studies aiming to obtain scientific measurements of the masticatory as well as the process behavior of our gumbases
  • Research of new gumbase ingredients which should deliver revolutionary benefits to the new generation of chewing gums.
  • Areas like the surface removability and long lastingness of flavours are just some examples of our research projects.

QUALITY SYSTEMS

IT ALL STARTS WITH THE INGREDIENTS

We carefully select our raw materials and pay special attention to all their quality and safety parameters Thanks to our long experience in dealing with those ingredients we are a big step ahead of most of the other players in identifying the parameters which need to be controlled carefully. Our state if the art Analytical Laboratory is engaged in the development of new techniques and is applying them in our day by day QC activities. We continuously search for more sophisticated instruments. We ensure highest scientific levels through the involvement of internationally recognized Universities and Scientific Consultants.
