Ingredients for success at FiE Paris

It’s all happening at FiE Paris this year… global innovations… key industry insights… excellence awards… and great friends. There may even be Champagne… after all, we will be in Paris, n’est-ce pas?

HMT will be there in force; observing latest developments and contributing to the crucial insights driving consumer spend in F&B, and, discussing how your brand can get its share.

Peter will be presenting a white paper on ‘How to convert a health interest to a product purchase’ and giving an introduction to the FourFactors® Brand Analysis System. Neal will be presenting to the main conference on “Life after Health Claims” plus speaking to an invite-only group on Stevia and the rules for ingredient branding.

The rest of our team will be hitting the floors, soaking up the latest trends and innovations and meeting with our old and new industry colleagues. It promises to be a great event and we are very excited. Follow our twitter handle @FourFactors to get our insights from the show floor (or find out what we’re up to).
