It’s no surprise “clean label” is the major trend on the 2017 food and beverage scene, but the innovation lies in clean label’s emerging ties to trust and transparency, and the investment brands are making to ensure their products align with consumer values. In this podcast, Judie Bizzozero, editor, Food Insider Journal, discusses the food and beverage trends she saw during the 2017 SupplySide West trade show, held Sept. 25 to 29 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, with Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, INSIDER. Along with clean label, they cover:
- New plant-based ingredient offerings seen on the SupplySide West Expo Hall from companies such as Glanbia, Kerry, Dupont, Cargill, Tate & Lyle and more
- The growing trend of fermented beverages (kombucha, anyone?)
- Sugar reduction and weight management ingredient offering that allow for tasty and indulgent products.
Join us in April 2018 for SupplySide East in Secaucus, New Jersey, to meet with more ingredient suppliers serving the food and beverage industries.
