The agrifood industry is undergoing a major shift: what we eat and drink is no longer just about sustenance. These products are taking center stage across a wide range of topics — most notably concerning food taste and pleasure, but also nutrition, wellbeing, environmental impact and energy consumption. With this growing awareness among consumers, comes greater expectations. Today, consumers feel more connected to their food than ever before. They expect mealtime to be the source of enjoyment, sociability, balance and nutrition. As a result, producers now face the challenge of developing products that can meet these sky high expectations across agrifood stuffs, beverages and aromas.
