Emerging Science & Technology - Annual Overview - January 2015
This global annual market overview will provide you with an in-depth review of the key issues in the global emerging science and technology market through 2014 as well as our forecast for what will happen in 2015 and beyond.
The food industry is faced with the looming problem of how to feed a global population which is projected to reach 9 billion by 2050.
As we predicted in 2013, not only are consumers pushing back from the use of additives and preservatives, they are also demanding companies to be more responsible, which includes minimizing food waste.
The juxtaposition of these two issues continues to put companies in a difficult position, as reduction of preservatives will expedite spoilage rates.
Innovations in 2014 have looked at new technologies to reduce food waste and rediscover food processing techniques for clean label solutions.
New technologies, such as 3D printed foods and novel food sources have been suggested as possible solutions.
Ways to recycle food waste into new antioxidant-rich ingredients from coffee berries, hops bracts, and olive leaves are also being investigated. Looking forward, emerging science will continue to address the needs of the growing elderly population as well as rediscover food processing and fortification techniques that appeal to the consumer’s growing interest in minimally processed foods.
