IFF (NYSE:IFF) for the first time, will showcase its expanded range of solutions across beverages, dairy, snacks, bakery, culinary, bars & confectionary categories at the Gulfood Manufacturing Show (GFM) held on Nov. 8 to 10, at the Dubai World Trade Center. IFF’s presence at this global food tradeshow centers around key food and beverage trends in the Middle East: – health, sustainability, and consumer demand for experiential delight. The key themes are brought to life through three nature inspired experiential zones powered by augmented reality.
Following the global pandemic, consumers have become more health conscious with at least eight out of ten people in the Middle East keen on taking care of their diet in a sustainable way. “We understand these changing industry dynamics and support our customers by bridging innovation with local insights,” said Helga Moelschl, regional president, AMETI, Nourish, IFF. “With our expanded flavor and ingredient portfolio and product design approach, we have merged science and creativity into our entire process, from conceptualization to commercialization.”
