Provisional programme 

Sunday 23 September 2018

> Organic ingredients for innovation: fermentation makes a strong comeback

The success of “new” fermented food represents a comeback for ancestral traditions and fulfils demands for more “living” food. Opportunities worth exploring for ingredients of the future.

With Gaëlle Frémont, INGREBIO and contributions from a supplier.

> Organic imports: how buyers can instil good practices

The first choice of buyers when sourcing organic raw materials is to buy French origin produce. And yet with the increase in firms’ needs, innovation and the limited number of French producers, importing materials is sometimes a necessary evil. Importing organic raw materials is a tricky exercise which requires a highly professional approach. The buyer, through their good practices and their method, can help to steer the profession in the right direction.

> Gluten-free products: a sustainable innovation trend? A scientist’s view.

The gluten-free market is mainly aimed at three types of consumers. Depending on the profile, people have different gluten tolerance levels, requiring products to be formulated in accordance with the target. Certain varieties of wheat might, for example, contain gluten which is more digestible for sensitive people. Other avenues for innovation with alternative ingredients will be addressed.

With Emilie Chanséaume, Nutrition project manager, NUTRIFIZZ

> Financing projects to structure international organic sectors

The procedures to structurally organise organic sectors are costly in both human and financial terms and are not always easy for SMEs to fund. Ben Hoppenstedt will present one of the possibilities for the co-funding of corporate programs to structure organic sectors in developing countries and thus secure supplies.

With Ben Hoppenstedt, Development economist at ECOPRODEV and contributions from two companies

> Ingredients and new regulation; the changes in appendices 8 and 9

Regulatory changes planned for 2021 will also affect appendices and their functioning. How much do we know today, and what is the outlook and the impact to be expected by organic companies?  

With Claire Dimier-Vallet, Project manager, SYNABIO

> Organic ingredients: in search of increasingly elaborate solutions to innovate in organic:

From superfood to plant protein, the growth of the organic market no longer requires purely a wide variety of raw materials. To stand out from the rest, the organic ingredient offering must also become increasingly practical, functional and elaborate.

With Gaëlle Frémont, INGREBIO and contributions from a supplier.

> A new certification for organic cosmetics (title to be confirmed)

With Nicolas Bertrand, Director, COSMEBIO

> Nutritional quality of plant protein: how much do we really know about these ingredients?

The diversity of plant protein requires research for several years to come to describe their structure, define the applications and optimise their nutritional value. In addition to their content, it is necessary to study their profile in terms of amino acids, the presence of anti-nutritional factors or the impact of processes (matrix effect).

> Tools to develop manufactured organic products

RMT Actia TransfoBio will present new tools to assist with the production of organic products (in particular for formulation and formation).

With Audrey Lesturgeon, Technical Adviser, Nutrition and Organic Products, CRITT PACA

> Flavourings in the new organic regulation (2021)

The new organic regulation will enter into force in 2021, causing major change to occur in flavourings: what flavourings will be allowed? What fiuture for organic flavourings? What impacts on organic processing and the offering to consumers?

With Claire Dimier-Vallet, Project manager, SYNABIO and a contribution from flavouring alternatives.
