The Power of Functional and Medicinal Foods
This year, functional foods have been a hot topic of conversation and excitement. These are foods specially designed to provide optimal health benefits. Consumers are now looking for products that not only have healthy ingredients, but also offer added minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and nutrients to enhance overall well-being.
As the popularity of functional foods continues to rise, there is also a focus on packaging that can effectively preserve these products. A prime example is our partner, Ithaca Hummus, who requires packaging options that can withstand high pressure processing (HPP). This method of pasteurization is known to maintain flavor, color, and nutritional value much better than traditional methods. HPP protects the product by using high pressure to eliminate food-borne pathogens, rather than using heat.
With the increasing demand for functional foods, it is crucial to prioritize packaging that can deliver not only on taste and quality, but also on preserving the health benefits these products offer.
What are the Themes of Expo West 2023?
All topics are boiled down to the top consumer needs that brands need to address: brain fuel, gut health, sustainable options and plant-based innovation.
Sustainability Fuels Progress and Prosperity
Discover the power of sustainability for business growth. Recent trends clearly indicate that companies dedicated to sustainability and measuring their impact are experiencing rapid expansion. Sustainable practices are no longer optional – they are essential for companies seeking success. Today’s consumers demand sustainability, and by investing in it now, you position yourself for future growth.
Take the example of companies proudly declaring themselves as plastic neutral. This distinction means they have effectively balanced their plastic footprint by removing and recovering plastic waste from the environment.
We firmly believe in creating a circular economy. Our commitment is to promote circularity, prioritize the use of post-consumer recycled materials (PCR), and reduce our customers’ reliance on virgin resin. Embrace sustainability and pave the way for a thriving future.
