Using proprietary research, the whitepaper explores trends underpinning clean label growth
Ingredion has launched a foodservice growth guide, titled ‘Put profitability on the menu,’ designed to help food service operators drive sustained clean label growth.
More consumers are linking simple ingredient lists, recognisable ingredients and minimal processing with the clean label experience, the company says, creating a significant opportunity for foodservice outlets to accelerate business growth and returns. Using proprietary research, the whitepaper explores trends underpinning clean label growth, how to capture the business value of clean label, and how to extend menu options with ingredient innovation.
Daniel Haley, Global Platform Lead, Clean & Simple Ingredients at Ingredion says: “The global foodservice is currently forecast to reach $3.2 trillion by 2023, based on a CAGR of 2%. What we are seeing is the potential for a rapid recovery as consumers act upon their pent-up demand for dine-out options, in turn driving stronger growth and creating opportunity within the sector. Evidence shows that the foodservice industry is largely adopting clean label as a business strategy and that commitment toward these changes is long-term, which is wonderful.
“What is important though is that these foodservice operations enrich their consumers’ eating experiences with high quality clean label products formulated with ingredients they know and expect. It’s with this robust and comprehensive growth guide that we aim to deliver key insights for foodservice operators at this pivotal time.
“Tapping into the heart of clean label has been one of Ingredion’s top priorities for over 25 years. We continually strive to further enrich the clean label movement and formulate menu offerings that customers will want to eat. Developing a clean label offering that meets both consumer and commercial goals should always be a top priority.”
