Food Vision is hosted jointly with key industry partners
to provide an annual forum for industry leaders to analyse the big issues confronting the sector today.
What’s hot in snacks? Insects? Posh jerky? Chickpeas? And what’s the difference between a meal and a snack, or are the lines becoming increasingly blurred? What’s a suitable portion-size? And will healthy vending become the norm? To find out, FoodNavigator-USA has gathered together a panel of entrepreneurs to discuss the hottest new trends in the market, who they admire, and where they see the growth opportunities in the next 3-5 years.
Diet soda is in a funk, while ‘real sugar’ is back in vogue. Energy is hot, but caffeine is still controversial. Maple water is bang-on-trend, but will it really become the next coconut water? And will Pepsi True & Coca-Cola Life revitalize the cola market, or are today’s more demanding and sophisticated consumers looking for more than refreshment and ‘no-artificial’ claims from their beverage calories these days?
What is natural, and who decides? Plantiff’s attorneys? Consumers? Retailers? Are ‘all-natural’ claims still resonating with consumers or are other cues more important? And how does a consumer determine if a food is less processed?
What’s hot in beverages? Tea for kids? Caffeine-free energy? Maple Water? How easy is it to create a great-tasting and stable product with all-natural ingredients? Is stevia all it’s cracked up to be? How much 4-MeI is acceptable? What will Coke’s deal with Keurig mean? And why are diet soda sales really in a funk? To answer these questions, FoodNavigator-USA has gathered together CEOs from some of the most innovative beverage companies in the US.
In this unique debate, moderated by FoodNavigator-USA editor Elaine Watson, our expert panel will explore gluten-free market trends and growth opportunities, the science behind celiac disease, gluten intolerance and wheat allergy, and the technical challenges of formulating great-tasting gluten-free products.
Food Vision is the ultimate event for global leaders in food and drink development. Combining business networking with innovative thinking and commercial insight, this is the ideal platform to explore the key issues that will dictate future business success.
