Demand for higher quality, longer-lasting juices, smoothies, teas, dairy-based drinks and other healthy beverages is driving beverage brands and fillers to invest in new processing and packaging technology.
Organised by BeverageDaily.com and DairyReporter.com, Beverage and Dairy Treatment 2015 explores breakthrough processing technologies including HPP, aseptic/ESL.
Matt Wilton, commercial consulting director at Zenith International will kick off the event at 9.30am New York time (2.30pm London time) by discussing global trends in added-value beverages and liquid dairy products, and asking what benefits emergent processing technologies bring.
We’re also joined by high pressure processing (HPP) pioneer Andrew Gibb (above left), MD of Coldpress, who will tell us about his brand’s acceleration globally and in the UK following a late 2013 listing with Tesco, shining light on the mistakes he made in the early days with HPP and barriers to uptake.
Stefani LiDestri, chief marketing officer of LiDestri Food and Beverage, Inc, in the United States, will also explain why she thinks LiDestri can shake up a stagnant US juice aisle with healthier, more nutritious products in more exciting packaging – after a significant recent investment in aseptic filling lines from Tetra Pak.
Finally, a roundtable discussion featuring Marcel Janssen, group manufacturing director at Refresco Gerber (Europe’s largest private label soft drinks bottler) and Richard Walton (below) R&D manager at Japanese dairy giant Meiji Co., will discuss to what extent process technology is driving ‘hot’ new product categories.
What are the packaging implications of a particular process choice? Will ‘premium’ aseptic become the new normal? And how will recent bottle/cap sterilization advances in ESL/aseptic shakeup the market.
