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, physical activities 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.

Our mission is to stand by our customers at each stage of the implementation of a strategy in nutrition, from analysis of the state of the art to development of tailor-made scientific communication tools. We provide:

Our Services

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.

Raising awareness among employees and citizens of healthy and sustainable nutrition

By Nutrition we mean the balance between intake from food and expenditure from physical activity. A poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle are risk factors for certain cancers, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, diabetes and obesity.
The National Health Nutrition Program 2018-2022 (PNNS 4) highlights the beneficial aspects of the combination of a balanced diet suitable for daily physical activity.

Sustainable development is defined by “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs”. Meeting sustainable development goals is also a challenge of our time for :


The PNNS commitment charter can be integrated into a corporate CSR policy or into a municipal program to improve / promote the local quality of life.
Having a healthy diet taking into account the aspects of sustainable development is essential for our health and for the planet. In this context, Orchidali supports companies or municipalities in carrying out their action plan in favor of healthy nutrition.

Because the health of your employees or your fellow citizens is important to you and you want to take action !
