ProFood Tech Is the Processing Show for the Ingredients Industry


Today’s discerning consumers are reading labels. They want details about what they are consuming, they are aspiring to a healthier lifestyle and they want ingredients with names that sound “natural.” 

Demand is up for ingredients that are free of GMOs, gluten and preservatives, and lower in sodium, sugar and calories. Consumers want natural colors and flavor additives and shun preservatives with “scientific-sounding” names.

ProFood Tech offers processing equipment for ingredients that not only answers these consumer demands but also meets stringent food safety regulations.
