The Ice Bucket Challenge to Develop New Food Technology Platforms

When: Wednesday, 07/18/2018 through Wednesday, 07/18/2018, 08:30 AM - 10:00 AM

Where: McCormick Place - S402AB

Most of the development and feedback from consumer research in new product platforms has evolved after the launch of beverage home appliances, however innovative platforms are emerging in the market and along with them the challenge of assessing the relevant attributes of the innovative product platform. Limitations when looking for appropriate reports, literature, methods and comparisons among different markets, limits the strategy of product launches and therefore opens the opportunity to scout/screen new experiences and attributes that consumers are looking in innovative product platforms across countries. The session includes the scouting of product market data, buying drivers, new product line concepts, and product dynamics.

Additionally, alternative nutritious ingredient sources are of the most importance due to the foreseen sustainable limitations of nutrients coming mainly from animal origin. Therefore the search for alternative highly nutritional sources and the development of new products with such ingredients, are one of the main drivers to fulfill the gap of innovative products with a high nutritional value. Additionally, fresh products, such as ready to bake products are highly desired by the consumer because they are commonly less processed food. As nutrition, flavor, and mouthfeel are the most important characteristics for product likeability, this opens the opportunity to develop new product lines and appliances that can deliver nutritious and delicious meals. This session summarizes the opportunities/challenges in the development of new food technology platforms and the scouting of consumer preferences on healthy, nutritious products.

New Developments in Clean Meat: A New Era in Sustainable Meat Production

When: Tuesday, 07/17/2018 through Tuesday, 07/17/2018, 03:55 PM - 04:55 PM

Where: McCormick Place - S403AB

Clean meat – meat produced through cell culture – has the potential to address all of the most pressing concerns about industrialized animal agriculture, including land use, water consumption, food safety, antibiotic overuse, and animal welfare concerns. The first public demonstration and tasting showcasing clean meat technology occurred in 2013, with a price tag of hundreds of thousands of dollars per pound. In the intervening half-decade, the field has made tremendous progress – both in technological sophistication and in approaching economically feasible price points. As of the 2017 IFT session on clean meat in June of last year, over a half-dozen companies had launched to commercialize clean meat. Since that time a flurry of activity has occurred, including the genesis of several new companies and the influx of significant venture capital and meat industry corporate venture investment. In this session, we will focus on the developments that have occurred in this fast-moving field in the preceding 12 months. Our speakers include an academic with a long track record of rigorous bioprocess design for large-scale animal cell culture; the food policy expert who is spearheading the collaborative effort for clean meat’s regulatory approval; and the CEO of one of the first-established clean meat companies. The session will be opened and moderated by Dr. Liz Specht, senior scientist with the Good Food Institute, to introduce the concept of clean meat for audience members for whom this is a new concept and to put each speaker’s role in the development of this technology in context.
