5th EU Starch Value Chain

Sep 27, 2022 - Sep 28, 2022
Continues as Scheduled
In person and online
5th EU Starch Value Chain, earlier known as Starch World Europe has been rebranded to realise the full potential of starch crops including their protein and fibre value and the importance of these components in the current shift towards healthy & sustainable diets.

In addition rising consumer preference towards clean label food products is driving innovations in the food ingredients players to strengthen their image & positions and develop cleaner formulations, shorter list of ingredients with natural and high-quality products.

The European Starch Industry today produces over 11 million tonnes of starch and starch-derivatives each year primarily primarily extracted from 25 million tonnes of EU grown wheat, maize and potatoes.

CMT has lined up a great panel of distinguished speakers to share on the latest developments in the region’s starch industry.

The conference will be opened by Jamie Fortescue – from Starch Europe who will present the industry outlook in current challenging times.
