At MarketPlace, we specialize in ingredient branding, from positioning to promotion. Here are a few brands we’ve helped grow.




Kerry Group, an international leader in taste and nutrition innovation, sought to expand its ProActive Health portfolio of functional ingredients. The €7.4 bn (FY 2021) company’s visionary growth required portfolio-level brand positioning and architecture to elucidate its value. At the product level, Kerry’s spore-forming probiotic ingredient called for branded ingredient positioning and identity development to stand out in the surging nutraceutical category.


Informed by B2B ingredient expertise and niche subcategory research, MarketPlace developed global, portfolio-level positioning for ProActive Health. We created the portfolio’s brand blueprint—fundamentals like the brand archetype, value proposition, architecture, and messaging—and told its story through video. For its B2B ingredient launch, we developed branded ingredient strategy, manifested in the value proposition, name, logo, and sales narrative for Sporevia® Probiotic. Today, Kerry remains a paragon of taste and nutrition innovation with business growth to match. In 2022, the company reported notable growth, with group revenue of €8.8 bn.

B2B Ingredient Strategy
“Strategy, first and always.” It’s more than our mantra—it guides all we do. For B2B ingredient brands, strategy entails positioning the ingredient or food technology for the right applications, audiences, and value.
Ingredient Brand Naming
A name is a vessel for meaning and, on occasion, is imbued with meaning all its own. From descriptive to esoteric to onomatopoeic, we create ingredient brand names that breathe life into the strategy and invite the brand to take hold.
Logo & Identity Creation
We shape brands by developing their logo, messaging, and visual systems. More than visual appeal, ingredient branding requires simplicity and 1-color clarity to effectively live on CPG packaging and co-branded promotion.

B2B ingredient branding doesn’t stop with logo development. MarketPlace Branding activates food, beverage, and supplement ingredient brands through industry advertising, B2B digital promotion, and consumer awareness campaigns.
