The one-hour online seminar – staged in partnership with the Almond Board of California (ABC) – will explore the impact and market potential of growing consumer demand for sustainable ingredients for the savoury snacks industry, estimated to be worth £2,847M in the UK alone.
Divided into three presentations – each focusing on different aspects of the healthy and sustainable snacking market – the webinar will conclude with a question-and-answer session with FoodManufacture.co.uk’s independently audited audience of 114,281 unique monthly visitors.
The first presentation will focus on top new snacking product trends for 2017 and beyond, and how this demonstrates the consumer demand for sustainable ingredients.
The second presentation will explore what credentials consumers look for from food ingredients, in terms of ethical and sustainable sourcing.
The third presentation will deliver insights into how the Almond Board of California is meeting the consumer demand for sustainability. The presentation will include the findings of the board’s latest research on sustainable production chains that minimise waste and maximise the efficient use of water.
