Relive the Roquette University Pet food by watching the video.
Top market trends in Pet Food presented by Manon Dupré, from Mintel.
“It was a good occasion to learn new things, but also to benefit from a high-quality wrap-up about the latest market trends”, commented an attendee.
Dupré insisted on some key words which definitely drive the market: natural, clean label and premium. A challenge that Roquette is determined to face, today with its large range of products, and tomorrow with innovative solutions to come.
Featuring content and experience through learning sessions and application workshops.
Learning sessions were the ideal place to deliver theoretical data. It was also the opportunity for the attendees to discover the benefits of plant-based proteins, starches, polyols, and fibres and to share the specific features of Roquette products.
To ease exchanges between attendees and Roquette’s CTS experts (Customer Technical Service), small groups were established. Multiple technical topics were covered in interactive workshops: innovative solutions were displayed and supported by samples and demonstrations. More details at the end of the article.
Last but not least, one of the workshops was an opportunity for the attendees to discover analytical capabilities for supporting them in their development projects.
« It was very interesting to see, to touch, to experiment, to ask all the questions that came to my mind. That was a fruitful experience”.
“These workshops were a very good opportunity to share with Roquette experts, but also with people from other companies, and exchange on the problems we are facing when making new developments”.
The Lunch break
It was an opportunity for attendees and Roquette teams to share thoughts, ideas, projects, etc… around texturising solutions for pet food, and food!
