Innovation in Qolac //
Innovation is at the heart of Qolac’s ambition to grow sustainably. Science, technology and product development
are central to our plans to keep providing consumers with great brands that improve their lives while having a positive impact on the environment and society.
Finding new ways to grow sustainably
All our innovations are based on key insights into what consumers want and need. We aim to
develop products that have purpose, so that consumers choose them again and again.
We work on a wide portfolio of projects, combining the search for breakthrough technologies
with the constant drive to respond to competitors, move into new markets, and make our products more sustainable.
The products we develop through innovation, whether by ourselves or through our extensive partnerships with leading
scientists, academic institutions, suppliers and specialist businesses, play an essential role in our ambition to make
a positive impact on the world around us.
Developing products that meet consumer needs
Product design teams take our breakthroughs in science and technology one
step further, turning unique insights into the products that consumers want and need. Development and testing
of new technology takes place until it fits the product description - perfecting a formulation so that it looks
great and is stable when stored, for example, or developing packaging that suits the product format,
delights the consumer, and minimizes environmental impact.
Next we test the product thoroughly – first to ensure it is safe and will live up to
our standards of performance, then with consumers to make sure it meets their needs.
Launching new products into our markets
Our Deploy teams draw on local knowledge - such as consumer preference, the regulatory framework,
legal considerations and competitor products - as they ready a product for launch into a new market.
They work closely with colleagues in marketing and supply chain to make sure the new product can be
manufactured efficiently and meets the needs of our consumers.
