Title: Innovative trends in organic ingredients: How will they impact the food of tomorrow?
Synopsis: Sustained strong growth in consumer demand for organic food products has caused the organic food ingredients market to evolve beyond a focus on production methods in accordance with organic standards. Initially mainly characterized by the fact that they were produced to lower environmental impact, organic ingredients now go far beyond this to encompass wider social and ethical values. As a result, organic ingredients are more diverse, their production methods more ethically and socially responsible, and products more sustainable. This session will look at the main trends driving the formulation, production and marketing of organic food and beverage and how this has led to an expansion of innovative organic ingredients.
Speaker: Gaëlle Fremont, Director & Consultant, Ingrebio
Time: 15:40 - 16:10
Title: The new organic regulation: challenges and opportunities
Synopsis: A new organic regulation will apply from January 2021 in the EU (and outside the EU for products to be imported). A basic legislative text - Regulation (EU) 2018/848 - was adopted in 2018 while the detailed requirements for organic production, certification and labelling are being discussed now by the EU Commission and the EU Member States. Some significant regulatory changes are expected in different areas. The presentation will focus on the main regulatory changes on food production and labelling (processing techniques, additives, flavourings), on control & certification and on international trade (import, export, Brexit).
Speaker: Michel Reynaud , Vice President ECOCERT SA - Member of the Board IFOAM EU, IFOAM EU

Title: Organic claims & shopper behavior
Synopsis: When discussing ‘Organic’, shoppers are not always talking about the same thing, they often have different definitions in mind. In a recent internal analysis, NAILBITER observed health conscious shoppers on their grocery store trips to see how Organic claims influenced their purchase behavior. Videometrics revealed that ‘Organic’ is a state of mind for most shoppers and in fact, multiple claims can be used to create a perception of being ‘Organic’. Even a non-organic product has the opportunity to position themselves as a natural and healthy option, capitalizing on the Organic trend. Several other factors contribute to this shopping trend. In this presentation, NAILBITER will share with attendees the key connections between Organic and Shopper Behavior. From pack color to ingredient lists – A certification label is not the only part of the story for drawing the attention and dollars of the health-conscious shopper.
