Food Innovation Presentations

In recent years, socioeconomic trends and technology advancements have reshaped how food is produced, prepared and distributed to consumers. While traditional value drivers of taste and price remain important, consumers’ preferences have shifted towards products that are clean-label, convenient, nutritious, sustainable and ensured of food quality and safety. In the face of such consumer-led demands combined with the challenges of manpower, productivity, rising costs and strong competition in the global market, it is essential that food companies leverage technology to remain relevant and stay ahead of the curve. Join us for insight on some of the latest innovations taking place in the food industry. Learn how companies are using technology to create innovative products and solutions to meet the industry’s evolving needs.
