Practical Insights to Formulating with Supply Challenges
Food formulation relies on a look at future ingredient and material availability. With supply shortages, crop disruptions, and demand imbalance, the pressure on food developers and a procurement team to find solutions is unending, especially with clean label formulation guardrails. Michelle Tittl, Product Development Manager at CuliNEX, will review practical challenges faced by clients and recommend strategies and solutions for ingredient reduction, replacement, and reformulation that she and her team use. Examples to be presented include implementing temporary solutions, alternative ingredient blends, cost reduction, process strategies, and reduction vs. replacement strategies.
