Home Food & Nutrition Reduction Reformulation

Delivering healthy, guilt-free but great-tasting food

Consumers have long demanded healthier options from the food & beverage industry that do not compromise taste and experience. In recent years, especially around topics like sugar content, regulatory agencies concerned with public health have matched that demand-pull with a stringent tax policy.

This push-and-pull has resulted in the critical formulation and end-product sensorial challenges. New limiter reduction technologies and alternative sourcing strategies will determine how the industry rises to this challenge – and which companies gain a competitive advantage by delivering an authentic healthful, guilt-free experience of delight to their consumers.

FutureBridge delivers insights to its clients across that entire spectrum of techno-commercial options.
