A WORD FROM DANA MCCAULEY SIAL CANADA 2018 INNOVATION AMBASSADOR

Dana MCCAULEY
Dana Mccauley

“Innovation in the food sector takes many forms. When reviewing entrants for the SIAL Innovation Awards, I look at every aspect of the product. I’m seeking excellence in execution not just based on taste or branding, but evaluate products based on what they do best. Entries that fill unmet consumer needs; products that offer people ways to narrow the gap between their eating intentions and actions; packaged foods that offer new flavours popularized by chefs and food writers; or, products that utilize packaging and manufacturing systems that make it easier to keep foods fresh longer are all factors that catch my attention.”
