FlavourTalk Amsterdam 2019

The annual FlavourTalk Raw Materials Exhibition and Conference was held in Amsterdam on 13-14 March 2019. This event, organised by Acumentia members Dave Baines, Lindsey Bagley, Craig Duckham and Melanie Brown, was a great success, with over 240 people attending. On 13th March 28 exhibitors showcased 187 raw materials in a round table, speed-dating format allowing delegates to sample a good selection of the featured products and speak with many suppliers.

The conference on 14th March provided an opportunity to hear leading speakers at the forefront of flavour technology and formulation discuss topics of key importance to the European market. Entitled, ‘Flavour and Health: the role of Flavour in Healthy Living’, it addressed the latest research in flavour perception by different groups within society and the importance of flavour in developing healthy eating patterns. The keynote speaker was Professor Andy Taylor, Project Coordinator at the European Space Agency, who discussed flavour perception in space food in a talk entitled ‘Mars and back – the role of flavour’.

The next FlavourTalk Exhibition and Conference will be held on 11-12 March 2020.
