Julien Bonvallet, Brand Manager Hi Europe & Ni, said, “For producers of functional ingredients, it is crucial to meet growing consumer expectations. Ideally, these foods and beverages need to be as natural and unprocessed as possible, ethically sourced and sustainably packaged — all while still being affordable, healthy and with a long shelf life. Expo FoodTec shows how innovative technologies can be used to meet these requirements.”
For Health and Nutrition Week 2018, UBM is working in partnership with the International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST), the European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance (ESSNA), ProVeg, StartLife and Smart Short Courses.
