ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, USA [14 March 2019]—Edlong will be a Gold Partner at the Future Food-Tech Summit March 21-22 at the Hilton Union Square in San Francisco, California. The company will join more than 500 global food leaders gathered to explore the most effective routes to market and the collaborative partnerships needed to scale innovation and drive the food sector forward.
On Friday, March 21, Edlong Chief Commercial Officer Beth Warren will be a featured panel speaker at the event, discussing “What does Healthy Really Mean? New Ingredients and Innovations Redefining the Great-Tasting Foods of the Future.” The panel of industry leaders will address how both food and ingredient companies are innovating to deliver “better-for-you” options that meet consumer demand for indulgent taste. They will focus on: the latest developments in healthy reduction of sugar, sodium and fat; the higher addition of proteins; and how indulgence and health could be better aligned as the demand for clean-label and plant-based products grows.
“Improving the taste of healthier food and beverage products is a challenge,” said Edlong Chief Commercial Officer Beth Warren. “We help food innovators rethink their use of natural flavors as functional ingredients at the beginning of the product development process instead of at the end to improve the overall taste of the product vs traditionally using masking technologies”. For example, introducing unique and natural dairy-free flavors like milk and creams to protein-fortified food and beverage formulations can give customers the permissible indulgence they crave by adding richness that was absent. Together, we can create healthier products without sacrificing the delicious taste consumers expect.”
Additionally, Edlong will have an exhibit at the FFT summit featuring plant based tastings including a new all-natural, vegan and indulgent Peruvian Emmental Cashew Dip.
In its fourth year, the Future Food-Tech Summit focuses on the technology, innovation and investment that are transforming the dynamics of the food sector. To learn more, visit futurefoodtechsf.com.
