Taking clean label
to the next level


Taking clean label to the next level


How consumers perceive what is “clean” is evolving and complicated, especially since different demographic groups have different definitions of what they think of as clean. Concerns about ingredients and production practices are prompting product developers to update formulations to reflect the latest iteration of the clean label trend.

In the latest Trends & Innovations webinar from Food Business News, we address how clean label is evolving and how younger consumers perceive the trend. Recorded on Aug. 23, 2023, this webinar provides a roadmap to understanding what is clean and where the trend is headed in the next five to 10 years.
