Delivering strategically innovative yet scientifically proven information has never been more critical in the food and beverage ingredients space. Ingredient development and the implications for food and beverage companies reveal key opportunities for those prudent enough to invest in renewed growth.

A Unique Event

It’s time to step up, and step out of the comfort zone! Post-recession is the dawn of a new era not a branch to rest upon. Natural ingredients are on the rise. Probiotics and antioxidants use is increasing. ‘Energy’ is hot. More ‘free from’ products, but less, outlandish health claims. Extreme flavors, new food varieties and real authenticity are demanded. We want to know that the ingredient’s inherent benefits have been scientifically proven and we want to know that this was achieved in the context of fair trade consciousness and carbon footprint damage limitation.

Global markets, consumer diversity and environmental sustainability are key forces driving the evolution of the food and beverage industry. Consolidation, changing consumer preferences, increasing government regulations, and energy and raw material costs, combined with the need for corporate and social responsibility, are having a dramatic impact on industry leaders’ strategies. Competitiveness, food information, novel food revisions, research and sustainability reflect contemporary thinking and feature highly on the ‘current preoccupations’ agenda.

The Food & Beverage Ingredients Summit offers a unique format for solution providers to gain access to the leading food and beverage manufacturing executives across North America. Over three days, solution providers will meet and interact with senior food and beverage manufacturing executives through a number of one-on-one business meetings and many organized networking activities. In addition, solution providers will attend strategic summit sessions led by thought leaders from across the food and beverage industry. Within the luxurious settings of the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa, this networking event presents a unique opportunity to develop meaningful and valuable business relations.
