Avebe launches cost-effective clean label solutions for meat applications11 Jul 2016
Almost 1 out of 3 US consumers wants ‘clean label’
While cost effectiveness is a continuous requirement to stay competitive, the shift towards a cleaner label is a growing trend. Consumers are more and more conscious about what they buy and eat. According to Innova (2015), 28 percent of US consumers claim that ‘clean label’ is a factor that influences their purchasing decision when shopping for foods or beverages across all categories. This sets the challenge for meat manufacturers to meet these requirements while staying cost effective.
