​​IFT Traceability Stage: “Eyes on Agriculture”

Day 1 – Monday, June 3 @ 3:15-3:45pm
Jenny Zegler, Associate Director, Mintel Food & Drink

More consumers are caring about sustainability at the farm level. The origin of food ingredients and their sustainability are stepping into the spotlight, especially as consumers care more about transparency. As consumers are interested in claims related to farmer welfare, soil health and regenerative agriculture, ingredient companies will have to share more information with manufacturers.

​​IFTNEXT Stage: “Formulating for All Ages: Creating Food and Drink as Ongoing Wellness Solutions”

Day 2 – Tuesday, June 4 @ 1:00-1:30pm
Lynn Dornblaser, Director, Innovation and Insight
Jenny Zegler, Associate Director, Mintel Food & Drink

Now is the time to create food and drink for healthy aging – Based on the Mintel Food and Drink Trend “Through the Ages,” more food and drink companies can take inspiration from the beauty and personal care category and create products that help people prepare to live better for longer. Formulation opportunities include heart, bone and joint health as well as brain and eye health.
