Biotechnology: What Food Companies Need to Know


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.
