Corn Products/National Starch launches clean label insights website

April 27, 2012

Corn Products International/National Starch Food Innovation, a global provider of ingredient solutions to the food and other diversified industries, has announced the launch of a website——dedicated to capturing and communicating consumer needs in the area of clean label products.

Despite growing demand from consumers for cleaner labels, no industry-wide definition currently exists. National Starch/Corn Products reviewed the market in order to propose defining clean label as: free from food additives, simple ingredient listing, and minimally processed. In response to strong market growth in the area of clean label, the website provides a platform for manufacturers and opinion leaders to access the latest research, technical advances, culinary applications, regulatory information, and case studies on consumer product activity in the clean label space.

“We want to be at the forefront of the clean label trend. This initiative will enable us to present and share an in-depth understanding of consumer attitudes and strengthen our position as the industry authority and go-to clean label partner,” said Aaron Edwards, Global Director of Wholesome for Corn Products/National Starch. “The hub will be an industry first for clean label, providing a unique and interactive platform to access relevant and valuable information, and with regional input, we intend for the hub to grow and become a valuable resource for the global food and beverage industry.”
