Representatives from global companies within the food and beverage industry, from fields of research and development, innovation, marketing and technology, met with one another in order to discuss what will move the food market of the future.
Döhler was honoured with the Innovation Award for its breakthrough in the area of gluten-free malt extracts.
‘Gluten-free’ is an emerging trend that presents new opportunities and challenges to the food and beverage industry. In 2013, more than 7,000 new products labelled ‘gluten-free’ were introduced to the market. Through market research and trend scouting across the globe, Döhler detected this trend in its early stages and has intensively conducted research on a new generation of malt ingredients.
“We are delighted to have been awarded this outstanding distinction,” said Marco Schmidt, head of innovation management at Döhler. “The annual Innovation Forum brings together a wealth of expertise from the global food and beverage industry. The award proves that our intensive research has paid off.
“In our daily work, Döhler aims to continuously provide its customers from the food and beverage industry with impetus for innovation and to support these ideas up to the realisation of the final product.”
