ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, USA [06 June 2019]—Edlong will be a Gold Partner at The Future Food-Tech Summit June 18 and 19 at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge.

On Tuesday, June 18, Edlong President and CEO Laurette Rondenet will be a panel speaker at the event, discussing “The Future of Snacking: How are Changing Consumer Lifestyles and Preferences Influencing our Eating Habits?” The talk will focus on how consumer demand for healthier products affects trends and innovation in the snacking sector.

In addition, on Monday, June 17, Edlong R&D Applications Manager Anne Marie Butler will be a panel speaker at the pre-summit, plant-based proteins workshop on the topic “Plant-Based Products 2.0: Advancing Taste, Texture, Nutrition and Format.” She will focus on the future of plant-based proteins, and innovations in improving taste and texture.

Edlong will also have a tabletop at the summit and will demo a vegan, toasted coconut caramel ice cream. The dessert features authentic taste and indulgent mouthfeel achieved with a coconut cream base and Edlong’s dairy-free flavors.

“We’re excited to sponsor the Future Food-Tech Summit again this year,” said Rondenet. “Our goal is to help food innovators rethink their use of flavors to not only deliver authentic taste, but drive products to market faster.”
