Spotlight on the SIAL Innovation 2018 Awards

Published on by Ambre Huerre Paitry - updated on

SIAL Innovation Awards, as inspirational as ever. 

With a 10% rise in the number of new products presented for the SIAL Innovation Awards, there is no stemming the flow of agri-food innovations, whether targeting manufacturers, retailers or, of course, consumers. 

Worldwide, the agri-food industry is striving to adapt to the appetites of a new generation hankering for fresher, healthier food, by developing new products and new ingredients that will soon be making their way to the store shelves and the dining table.

This edition of SIAL 2018 will mark the big comeback of taste. Or rather, tastes: tastes that are new and powerful, to bring new “pleasure experiences” to consumers. Also - and above all: natural tastes. “True”, authentic products, playing the transparency card so as to reassure consumers who are increasingly conscious of food risks. These are innovations that carry meaning: for yourself, for others, for the planet! 

With 2,355 entries for the Awards, this 2018 edition testifies once again to the vitality and boldness of the companies concerned. Following a first selection conducted by XTC world innovation, 801 finalists were short-listed in 3 categories: product sectors, purchaser target sectors, and Intermediate Products & Ingredients and E&T sectors.
