2014 Protein Trends & Technologies Seminar

Title: Size, Share, Sources and Segments: Analysis and Forecasts for Value-Added Protein Ingredients

Presentation Description: Protein fortification is increasingly an option for meeting the global challenges of nutritional deficiencies in the developing world, while combating the rise of certain disease in developed economies. However, the current protein ingredient supplier space is highly fragmented, which makes quickly identifying and addressing opportunities and threats to this market segment critical for long term success. This presentation discusses current factors boosting the demand for protein ingredients in 2013 and 2014 as well as other key Mega Trends creating both opportunities and threats across the global protein value chain. Its specific focus will be on providing an overview of global protein ingredients-sourced from both animals and plants-including insights into market dynamics by product type, region, and end application.

2013 Protein Trends & Technologies Seminar Presentation

Description:  Strategic Insights into the Global Protein Ingredient Market

New research expanding on Frost & Sullivan’s protein marketplace reports provided a powerful overview of the state of the world’s protein ingredient supply. International drivers, limitations and demands for animal and plant protein ingredients for food and beverages were analyzed and implications discussed. The building blocks of protein-enhanced products, including ingredients from dairy, egg and gelatin to soy, wheat, pea and others were considered.
