GE Application Centre – Our Innovation Den
When one examines the existence of an R&D department in any business, they will realize how important and forward-looking the organization must be in their ideology. It also signifies a strong overview to deliver technical solutions.
Having an R&D department backed by an application center means that it will help develop new products and improve the existing ones. This is where we, Gujarat Enterprise, take pride in our state-of-the-art Application Centre and R&D team.

Our specialists innovate functional stabilizer and emulsifier blends to achieve better functioning, quality, and cost-efficiency. Instead of rendering you with a generalised solution, we develop and offer a technical explanation as per the customer’s specific application. We develop stabilizer and emulsifier blends for different ice-cream products such as frozen desserts, Ice lollies, kulfi, etc.
With the fully equipped application lab and small scale pilot plant solely dedicated to Ice-cream, we conduct trials and evaluate the efficiency of the developed blends of emulsifier and stabilizer systems. Research and development benefit us in enhancing the product in close coordination with clients, and we also deliver tailored blends for specific application requirements to meet clients’ demands.
Our Research and Development team provides you with a highly functional and exclusive solution through our tailored ingredients for water and milk-based jellies. We add value through ingredients in existing products and tailor-made thickener hydrocolloid blends to enhance the jelly characteristics such as gel, strength, transparency, toughness, water retention, etc. Our strength is to add significance to existing products and services to industries.
GE’s Modus Operandi
We were approached by a client who wanted to develop a Nutraceutical Ice-Cream product to launch in the Indian sub-continent. The product was entirely new to the market, and there was no other player currently. Hence the challenges associated with this project were much more significant. The market research was thorough, but the product was developed from scratch as it had no benchmark. Hence, we had to have a lot of discussions and conversations to understand the client’s requirements and then act upon the given set of briefings.
Since this was a new project for the Indian market, the significant issues to be addressed with the product were:
1. It should be catering to a niche market of fitness enthusiasts, so it had to be made sure that all the raw materials in formulations were chosen accordingly and following the regulations/specifications. Hence our sourcing of the ingredients was changed accordingly.
2. It had to be engaging for the new customers it was meant for.
3. The product was so technically diverse that every ingredient and functionality had to be studied in-depth and worked in combination.
4. The product had to be incorporated into the existing technological system.
5. The product had to be tested among the regular products as well and be stable and shelf-stable.
After initial briefings & discussions, our R&D team went to work and developed a set of products & concepts based on the briefings. Further deliberations and feedback were taken into consideration, and trials were conducted for the concept.
After which, sensorial panels test the product and give their feedback, and the final approved concept is then taken to the client for their feedback.
After we have reached a stage of the agreement with the client on the product, all the technology transfer takes place on mutually agreed terms. This is the stage generally where the pilot-scale turns into commercialisation.
The approach that we employ in developing a product/blend or a solution is the point of difference in this competitive marketplace, and we feel that it definitely gives us an edge among others. We are grateful for the clients who put faith in us for product development and ingredient solutions.
So be it providing a single ingredient or an end-to-end product development, we believe in delivering technically viable solutions. Those projects with technical solutions at the core will be sustainable and commercially viable, and we continue to strive for the same.
