LONDON, April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Today's consumer expects a lot from dairy products. They want innovative products that give them added value, from indulgent flavours to nutritional and functional health benefits. However developing these products presents huge challenges to the dairy industry from overcoming the technical difficulties in taste, texture and shelf life to having to adhere to strict regulatory guidelines.
With the global dairy market forecast to reach €5bn by 2015*, food and beverage manufacturers are looking to develop added-value dairy products through reformulation and new ingredients that will drive growth across global markets. In response, Fi Conferences has launched Innovations in Dairy - a brand new two and a half day conference and workshop designed to offer answers to the key dairy challenges in the rapidly expanding global dairy market.
Innovations in Dairy will outline the huge growth potential for those dairy product manufacturers innovative enough to take advantage; from ways of meeting consumer demands, working around regulatory hurdles and overcoming technical challenges, to exploring growth categories and emerging market opportunities. Ingredient suppliers, consultants and research organisations will benefit from attending by having access to a wealth of insight into the sector as well as a host of networking opportunities with the leading dairy manufacturers.
To reflect the global nature of the event, the speaker panel features experts from all of the major global dairy regions including Asia, India and Europe. Speakers confirmed so far include TINE SA, Dairy UK, European Dairy Association, Meiji Co. Ltd, Tasty Dairy (India), Arla Foods, Parmalat, Danish Dairy Board, Food for Health Ireland and RSSL.
