Bundled competences in the new iBox
Since last October, Hilcona has been setting the course for the culinary future in its new Competence Centre in Schaan. iBox is the innovation forge in which six teams from product development and from technology and packaging management work closely together. Their common goal is to create exciting new products for the various product categories.
A low-rise building with a small herb garden in front of the entrance is the new home for around 45 «iPeople». This is where Hilcona has brought together the Competence Centres for Meals, Pasta, Veggie and Preserved Convenience as well as Sandwiches & Pizza. The technology and packaging management and project management of the two new manufactory brands «The Green Mountain» and «La Pasteria» are also involved.
Previously housed in three buildings on the Hilcona site in Schaan, these teams now concentrate their work and expertise in one place: the iBox. The «i» in the name stands for innovation. And in the multifunctional workshop, innovation is not only important in terms of developing new products, but also in the way we work.
