SPONSORED STORY: Healthy snacking a key focus

As public appetite drives innovation in the booming food-to-go sector, get ahead of the curve at Food Matters Live 2018.

With insight into the newest products, trends, food tech advances and progress on the public health agenda, the free-to-attend event returns to London’s ExCeL on 20–22 November to encourage debate and collaboration on the big issues facing the food and drink industry.

Thousands of visitors from retailers, manufacturers and foodservice providers to health professionals and food scientists will attend Food Matters Live, hosting 800 exhibitors and hundreds of speakers in a comprehensive conference and seminar education programme.

Food-to-go trends
The wide-ranging seminar programme includes examples of both plant-based and protein-based food-to-go innovations; whether a low FODMAP diet, traditionally used by IBS sufferers, could be the next big trend; progress on sugar reduction and whether free-from foods should be fortified with extra nutrients.
And with more than 800 leading organisations from leading manufacturers and suppliers to the newest start-ups showcasing the latest products in a curated exhibition, there is nowhere better to get a taste of a huge range of nutritious food and drinks, grouped in key retail growth areas including free-from, snacking, drink well and sports nutrition.

Healthy snack innovations
As demand for cereal bars, popcorn, “raw” products and more continues to boom, the Healthy Snacking Zone features the latest innovations from sugar-free Gullon Biscuits to – for the more adventurous – SENS protein bars, made with flour derived from crickets.
Meanwhile, reflecting trends including gut-health-friendly drinks, plant-based alternatives to milk and low-alcoholic beers and spirits, the Drink Well Zone hosts exhibitors including LivOn, a new antioxidant drink focused on liver health; liquid probiotic Symprove, which targets gut health, and “cacao espresso” Chokkino.
