Our first video webinar, the event, sponsored by IFF and Cargill, features information on how the dairy industry is ideally positioned, due to the versatility and range of products, to work with producers of novel ingredients to deliver real innovation.
We look at what companies can do to incorporate new ingredients and combinations of ingredients to offer products that tap in to consumers’ interest in products with health claims or other added benefits.
Presented by DairyReporter editor Jim Cornall, the webinar features three experts in the field.
