As the second half of 2023 begins, we are looking at some of the most noteworthy Ingredients stories on Food Dive so far this year.
The sector has faced an array of challenges, including lingering inflation and supply chain volatility.
In the face of these factors, some ingredients companies are focusing on diversifying their product offerings and tapping into properties such as fiber for their nutritional benefits. Others are embracing the rise of artificial intelligence to access new formulations based on consumer demands and sustainability goals.
Food and beverage companies also are investing in upcycling as a way to reduce food waste and drive new product innovations. This includes ingredients made with spent grain from beer brewing, coffee fruit and oats.
