When feeding is health

“When feeding is health”  is the raison d’être of our company and we share the definition of health according to the World Health Organisation:

“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.1

Orchidali works on the relationships between feeding and all health aspects including safety issues, eating behaviour, psychological aspects and effects on metabolism and body functions. We believe in a holistic approach of Nutrition including public health, environmental sustainability, food science and processing, and physiology to satisfy all the increasingly demanding needs of the consumers. We believe in robust science-based argumentations to drive innovation and success.

Scientific & Regulatory Affairs

Orchidali helps you define and implement an action plan for promoting nutritional and health properties of your food products. The plan aims at ensuring the ongoing growth and development of your business while taking into account quality of the scientific evidence behind the product and regulatory constraints.


Orchidali organises interactive training sessions about the regulatory context related to nutrition and health claims and information to consumers for marketing people or developers. The aim of these sessions is to provide the basic understanding of the goals of the Regulations. To catch the attention of the participants, we illustrate the requirements with practical cases adapted to your products and market.

Orchidali can also organise session on Nutrition and well-being that are parts of your Corporate Social Responsibility action plan. The aim of these sessions are to raise the awareness of your collaborators for food, diet, physical activity.
