Biotechnology: What Food Companies Need to Know

- In Stock

Biotechnology is quickly becoming one of the top issues for food companies and it can be a tricky route to navigate, especially internationally. This webcast will prepare companies to successfully navigate the complex biotech landscape, minimizing product development and business risk. Experts will share tips to negotiate regulatory and legal processes. Results from the International Food Information Council’s 14th annual Consumer Perspectives on Biotechnology study may surprise attendees about how consumers really feel about biotech.

Attendees will also learn how nutrition and functionality challenges with partially hydrogenated oils can be solved with biotech soybean oils. This is critical, because U.S. food manufacturers depend on soybeans: soybean oil accounts for 71.3% of edible fat and oil consumption, and biotech traits will play a major role in heart-healthy functional foods.

Webcast Objectives:

• Participants will be prepared with actionable knowledge to navigate the complex regulatory and legal processes for using biotech ingredients in food products and minimizing product development and business risk.

• Participants will apply knowledge of biotech traits to the challenge of how to overcome ingredient nutrition and functionality challenges of edible oils, using a case study of biotech soybean oil.
