The ingredients industry trends 
in the post-COVID world

The growing consumer interest in healthy eating is having a significant impact on the development of food ingredients. Sales of nutritional and health ingredients are on the rise. Food and beverage producers are being called upon more than ever to create products that contribute to improved physical and mental health.

Lead companies and experts in ingredients production will be sharing about these trends and the business opportunities that they offer during the Food & Ingredients trade fair. This year, for the first time, the Fi Europe will be co-located with Hi Europe.

Boccard will be present, meet us from November 30 to December 2 at Messe, Frankfurt, STAND 31j62.


The COVID crisis has reinforced healthy eating trends as consumers realize as never before the importance of food to their health and immune resistance. Consumers avoid additives and preservatives and are opting for natural products, health ingredients, plant-based alternatives, and immune-boosting products. The pandemic has also reminded us of our dependence on nature and is prompting environmentally conscious consumers to seek out sustainable ingredients that support human and planetary health.

At the same time, food manufacturers are confronted with increasingly strict regulations from health departments. They are demanded for transparency and quality in food ingredients that deliver healthier and more safety formulations. In this context, leading food and health ingredient companies are focused on developing innovative solutions to provide the global food industries with next-generation alternative functional ingredients to deliver great tasting products and provide consumers with components that fit their health, quality and origin concerns.

Ingredients manufacturers are confronted to the need to customize their production lines to exploit them for specific and varied applications. Industrial users of these ingredients require the guarantee of a standardized production and a formulation of the recipes allowing to deliver a product of constant quality and performance.

Therefore, the introduction to technologically advanced solutions and process and project management are emerging needs in the food and health ingredients industry.


Aware of this significant challenge, Boccard assists ingredients manufacturers in the definition, design, and implementation of their industrial facilities. As an industrial integrator, we accompany ingredients producers from the pre-treatment of raw materials, the production by bio-fermentation, the extraction and purification of molecules of interest, to the final form of the ingredients.

Know more about these major industry trends and the way Boccard supports manufacturers during the Food Ingredients Europe event. And for the first time enjoy the Health Ingredients Europe event in parallel.


FIE is the largest trade fair for food ingredients in Europe.
