DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences has built a new plant-based solutions portfolio to help food producers meet the growing demand for healthier, more sustainable foods and beverages that are meat and dairy-free. The portfolio will be presented from tomorrow at Food Ingredients Europe 2019.
As more consumers choose a flexitarian, vegetarian or vegan diet, Euromonitor estimates the market total value at USD 23 billion with growth rate close to 9%. Among millennials, the desire for healthy and sustainable food solutions is also moving the market beyond plant-based alternatives that mimic meat or dairy.
“Using our plant-based solutions, food manufacturers can redefine existing products or create entirely new categories that give consumers a wider range of choices. If the plant-based movement is to have a long-term impact on health and sustainability, we need to provide more options so consumers can quickly identify their personal preferences and speed up change in their purchasing habits,” says Sonia Huppert, Global Marketing Leader for Plant-Based Health at DuPont.
“A comprehensive portfolio”
At Food Ingredients Europe, visitors to the DuPont stand can sample a range of plant-based samples such as flammable tacos, favourite ‘fish’ soup, croque mon père, vegetable protein on a mushroom landscape, iced caffe latte, and a creamy dessert with granola. All exclusively made with animal-free ingredients.
“We all talk about the need to secure the global food supply for the future. With our solutions, food companies can produce delicious and safe foods that are good for health and the planet today. The focus is on making even better use of resources, improving access to nutrition and exciting consumer taste buds,” says Huppert, with reference to the DuPont ‘Invent a Better N:OW’ campaign.
The DuPont team invite visitors to join their tasting sessions at Food Ingredients Europe on 3-5 December 2019 in Paris. The sessions will be held each day at 11.30am and 2pm on the DuPont stand, number 6C90.
