A clean label food or beverage can open the doors to incremental distribution, differentiate your products in a crowded space, and command a higher price point for improved margins. However, formulators are challenged with other success criteria when designing or redesigning a product. Clean label solutions must accommodate competing factors such as sensory, shelf life, certifications, cost of goods and site capabilities, which create very specific opportunities. Through several case studies from the worlds of bakery, nut butters and baby food, this session will outline a holistic approach to formulating successful clean label products.
