How to address your clean label challenges!


Today, it is important for consumers that the brands and manufacturers are transparent about what ingredients can be found in their food. As a consequence, the clean label trend is not anymore a new trend but it has become main stream as mentioned by Jerome Raudin; Senior Global Marketing Manager at Chr. Hansen. At the same time, it has been proven that innovative flavors are a key driver to enhance sales and combining both requirements has become a prerequisite for ice cream manufacturers.
