FoodBev Media attends and covers many major industry events every year, and 2017 was no different. Of course, when covering these events we meet and interview many influential industry figures, recording video interviews for our YouTube channel.
Here we round up five of the best video interviews from 2017.
Macchia Valley’s ‘silent’ coffee machine
Macchia Valley’s new coffee and espresso machine has been described as the ‘most silent coffee machine’ for the workplace.
Containing a sleek design made from stainless steel while featuring a colour touchscreen interface, the Nevis has two bean holders each with a capacity of 1kg and a 4-litre water tank.
Darren Wood spoke to Macchia Valley’s Christopher Rapp about the machine.
The Sidel Supercombi processor
Sidel’s Super Combi is an all-in-one system for water and carbonated soft drinks production that delivers ready-to-sell products at high speed.
The machine is billed as the ‘next generation’ solution and has five process steps: preform feeder, blower, labeller, filler/capper and cap feeder into an all-in-one system.
Darren Wood discussed the capabilities of the Supercombi with Sidel CEO Sam Strömerstén.
Rousselot anti-ageing solutions
Rousselot’s peptan collagen peptides is a unique bioactive protein that can be used in many applications, from functional foods and drinks to protein bars, anti-ageing skin solutions and dietary supplements.
Dr. Elke De Clerck from Rousselot explained how using peptan can offer a wide range of reformulation functionalities to meet innovation and formulation needs.
Blupura introduces app-controlled taps
Blupura introduced an app-controlled tap. The customised top control taps have multi-functions including being able to offer cold, ambient and hot water, being able to see how much water they are using, their impact on the environment plus consumers can save their individual settings for greater ease of use.
Blupura’s Debora Screpanti spoke with Darren Wood about this innovation.
KMC potato-starch Cheese
KMC released a potato starch-based vegan-friendly cheese called Cheesemaker CF 30, which offers a very “cheese-like sensation,” despite the fact that there is no milk protein inside it.
Darren Wood spoke to KMC’s Hugo Neilsen, CCO business development & Americas, and Neilsen told him about the functionality, texture and taste of the cheese, as well as his views on plant-based protein trends.
