29 Mar 2017 --- With global demand for coconut-based products racing ever higher, Tetra Pak has launched an online version of its acclaimed Coconut Handbook.

Providing an in-depth guide to the entire value chain of products made from this versatile and nutritious fruit, the Coconut Handbook has become a source of reference for more than 1000 industry professionals since it was launched as a print-on-demand book in 2016.

“The Coconut Handbook draws on our 20-year experience in the category, as well as insight and research from our dedicated Coconut Knowledge Centre in Singapore. In response to numerous customer requests, and in anticipation of continued growth, we are now making it available online,” says Samit Chowdhury, Cluster Marketing Services Director, Tetra Pak.

Coconut-based beverage products are gaining popularity. Between 2013 and 2016, packaged coconut water alone reports a CAGR of 22% in production volumes. Still a young market, its growth is expected to continue at pace, driving global sales to an estimated $3.4 billion by 2019.

The consolidating ingredients sector: Ingredion convergence epitomizes a tightening sector

23 Jul 2018 --- The integration of several portfolios into a single larger ingredient entity was a key theme at the IFT 2018 Food Expo in Chicago last week. The relatively small trade show floor was a reminder of how many previous exhibiting companies have been swallowed up over recent years, in order to be integrated into the likes of DSM (e.g. Martek, Ocean Nutrition Canada and Fortitech), Kerry (e.g. Ganeden, Red Arrow and Biothera), ADM (Wild Flavors) and IFF (Ottens Flavors and David Michael). Naturex (currently being acquired by Givaudan) could be the next to disappear from a show floor, amid a consolidating ingredients world, where questions must soon be raised about a growing lack of competition and diversity in ultimate holding companies.

People want products with alternative sources of protein as they turn away from traditional meat sources and one of the categories where plant-based inspired eating is driving innovation in snacking. Plant proteins fit some of today’s most significant trends in food and beverage product development – non-GMO, organic, sustainable, vegan, big 8-free, allergen-free and label-friendly.
