Trend

The agri-food industry is striving to adapt to the appetites of a new generation

"Today, the agri-food industry is striving to adapt to the appetites of a new generation hankering for fresher, healthier food, by developing new products and new ingredients that will soon be making their way to the store shelves and the dining table."
Xavier Terlet, Proteines XTC Cofounder

On the rise

The big comeback of taste

Our food innovation competitions mark the big comeback of taste. Or rather, tastes: tastes that are new and powerful, to bring new “pleasure experiences” to consumers. Also - and above all: natural tastes. “True”, authentic products, playing the transparency card so as to reassure consumers who are increasingly conscious of food risks. These are innovations that carry meaning: for yourself, for others, for the planet!
