LONDON, July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
When natural is not enough, colouring foods are the priority ingredients to give F&B products clean and simple labels while maintaining the desired colour. Food Ingredients is delighted to announce the brand new Colouring Foods Forum held in Brussels on the 10-12 September 2013. Brought to you by the organisers of the sold-out Natural Colour Summit 2013 and developed through extensive industry research and an expert advisory board that includes Wrigley, Dairy Crest and Coca-Cola, this is the only event in the calendar focused exclusively on improving the stability of colouring foods in technical applications to achieve sought-after clean labels.
The global market value for colouring foods is predicted to reach a staggering €1.03bn by 2017*.
Unlike synthetic and even natural colours, colouring foods do not need to be labelled as additives or with e-numbers. They are not selectively extracted in the same way as natural colours and their label names are more easily recognised by consumers. Major colour suppliers like GNT and Nigay are expanding their colouring foods offerings and more and more manufacturers are differentiating their products with additive-free labels.
Delegates will meet with prominent industry peers at the Colouring Foods Forum and hear from expert speakers driving innovations in clean label reformulation, from organisations including Britvic Soft Drinks, Leatherhead Food Research, the University of Leeds and the John Innes Centre. Companies that have attended previous Fi conferences on colour include Nestlé, Arla Foods, Mars, Danone, Wrigley, General Mills, The Hershey Company, PepsiCo, Tata Global Beverages and many more.
