Unilever, Mars Chocolate, Marks & Spencer, Arla Foods, Tate and Lyle, EFSA, Nestlé, Marlow Foods and Almarai are just some of the organisations represented on the expert speaking panel at this year's premier food ingredients knowledge forum - the FiE Official Conference. Taking place alongside the world-leading FiE show in Frankfurt from the 19-21 November 2013, the modular conference offers high-level, topic-led insights for companies to benchmark their business strategy and increase their market share.
Michele Kellerhals, Director, Research & Innovation, Functional Ingredients at the Coca-Cola Company, commented "this conference is a great way to get the latest scientific and R&D updates as well as allowing you to create your own individual conference agenda."
This year's agenda covers 20 module topics across 6 key themes, including Top Trends and Leadership, Natural, Functional, Category Innovation, Reformulation and Innovation, plus two additional focused briefings on texture and sustainable cocoa, allowing attendees to participate in as many key topics as they can fit around their show attendance.
This year's FiE Official Conference also includes a number of exciting, new modules never available before, focusing on Dairy, Beverages, Pet Nutrition, Botanicals and Advanced Leadership. Each module contains 4 essential sessions including a discussion and debate session where attendees can share and learn with their peers and the expert speaking panel combined. The enhanced 2013 programme offers more new content, networking and learning opportunities than previous conferences.
Conference Producer Kate Sharman explains: "the feedback received from past delegates and key industry professionals has been instrumental in moving the event forward in 2013. People told us that they wanted more interaction, which has been built into the programme with the interactive open forums in each module, and they wanted some new content around the hot issues affecting their business at the moment."
The industry's leading experts and peers will be present at the FiE Official Conference and attendees will hear from thought leaders driving innovations in various topic areas of food ingredients, including Mintel, Leatherhead Food Research, Campden BRI, the University of Florence, the International Stevia Council, Food for Health Ireland and more.
