Food processors can relieve cost pressures by looking at their oils

October 25, 2011
The current economic stagnation coupled with very high commodity prices has led food manufacturers to understandably become very price-sensitive.

At Cargill, we're always trying to find ways to help our customers promote their products while saving costs.

One example of our cost-saving innovations is our new Clear Valley® 80 high-oleic canola oil, which debuted in June. This oil offers a shelf life of 18 to 20 months.

While this level of stability is more than is needed, it offers a clear benefit when it comes to packaging:

Because Clear Valley 80 resists oxidation, it requires less packaging to protect processed foods from light and oxygen.

When you consider that packaging is by far the most expensive part of most  products, manufacturers can enjoy significant cost savings by using only one oxygen barrier layer as opposed to, say, five.
