Simple Foods to Nourish

 

Innovating to keep pace with consumer demands for cleaner food ingredient labels, Univar Solutions is working closely with our partners and food brands to deliver a simple ingredient line formulated to nourish, sustain and maintain in the New Now.

 

Food is more than just the calories we eat or drink—it is a sensory aspect of our lives, an experience we create when we begin and end each day at home, caring for ourselves and our families. And as we spend more time at home, food experiences are both a comfort and a reward. Designing what goes into the foods and beverages we consume every day is also an art and science – and a key part of the consumer experience we want to provide.

Formulators and brands have an opportunity to provide the freshest ingredients formulated to fit a clean profile, keeping health, nutrition and wellness at the core of our food experiences. 

Catering for better nutrition

 

Now that consumers are paying attention to what they eat and are more particular about what they put into their bodies – as well as the journey their food has taken before reaching their plate – food manufacturers must meet demands for cleaner label options. Mintel reports show that 30% of U.S. adults are looking for products with fewer ingredients and more familiar ingredients. A staggering 74% are looking for more transparency.1,2 Consumers have access to information about how foods and beverages play a significant role in boosting stamina, strength and immunity, especially to fight off viruses and other health abnormalities. Shoppers have changed how they are choosing their foods with a new attention on reading labels, understanding what ingredients are in their foods, where their foods come from and which foods they should avoid. And they are looking for simple foods to nourish their body and mind.
