Big challenges & smart failures in plant-based applications
Food ingredient producers are constantly challenged to meet the growing demand for plant proteins. Therefore we invite IFFI members to exchange technical challenges and possible solutions. We combine this workshop with a company visit to our member Griffith Foods in Herentals, Belgium.

Managing directors, Innovation/R&D managers, marketing managers, business development and consumer insight managers, product development specialists, process and application technologists, regulatory and food safety specialists and other colleagues from IFFI members who are interested in plan based food applications.
The demand for innovative food ingredients in vegetarian and vegan food applications is growing fast. The pressure is on! IFFI members have expressed a clear interest in discussing the technological limits of the food processing industry when it comes to the use of plant proteins. At the same time Griffith Foods is looking forward to explore possibilities of sensory evaluation with other IFFI members, introducing ‘Landscaping’ as an instrument.
