Outlook for industry beyond starch & challenges ahead

CMT's 5th Starch Europe series is back this year ! Better & Stronger !

Ukraine crisis, disrupted supply chains, extreme weather conditions are weighing heavily on the region’s starch industry.

How will  the future flow of raw materials & availability play up ?

In helping EU reach carbon neutrality goals by 2050, the starch industry is working alongside farmers to further reduce emissions from cultivation of agriculture raw materials and support the adoption of more sustainable agriculture practices.

Starch World Europe has rebranded to EU Starch Value Chain 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.

Hear Lyckeby share about the amazing progress of the Crispr short chain amylopectin potato project that produces potatoes with novel starch properties with the best ever freeze and thaw stability.

Learn about the Rothamsted project that has edited wheat that can reduce levels of the naturally occurring asparagine, which is converted to the carcinogenic contaminant, acrylamide, when bread is baked or toasted.

Mung bean, Faba bean starch extraction & applications and many more.
