Dairy Reporter webinar: Creating value-added functional ingredients

On demand

We live in an era in which many dairy companies and cooperatives have turned to R&D to improve their profits, ‘going beyond milk, yogurt and cheese and looking to create functional ingredients that can be added to a wide range of products’, notes Dairy Reporter.

In this free, hour-long webinar sponsored by industry heavyweights EdlongDupont and Cargill, a panel of experts in the field discuss what food and beverage trends could benefit from the inclusion of dairy ingredients, and what companies can do to create profitable, innovative products consumers will want to buy. The discussion is moderated by Dairy Reporter editor Jim Cornall and is available for free on demand.
