With more than 16 years of experience in the Research & Development of the food industry, respectively in the Dairy Industry (Friesland Coberco from 1994-2006) and the Bakery Ingredient Supplies Industry (CSM from 2006-2010), I am a serious partner who is able to help you in the application of Nutrition Sciences in food innovation. Before starting to work for the food industry I contributed to several advices from the Dutch Food and Nutrition Council in the Netherlands. With my background in Biology, Human Nutrition and Pharmacology I am able to understand a wide variety of scientific domains that touch upon nutrition and health.


During my industrial employment I actively participated in many Task Forces of ILSI-Europe, represented my employers in the Top Institute Food and Nutrition in the Netherlands and represented CSM in the industrial platform of the European Healthgrain Project. 


In September 2010 I started my consultancy. Additional to critical appraisal of the scientific literature I can support projects in food innovation and can design and facilitate workshops intended to set up effective innovation projects. Since early 2017 I am a member of the Nutrition Cooperation Consultancies in the Netherlands.
