Univar to Introduce Latest Interactive Formulation Tool
REDMOND, Wash., July 14, 2010 – Univar, a leading global chemical distributor, today announced that its Food Ingredient’s team will introduce the 2010 edition of its interactive formulation resource, Delivering Discovery, at the IFT Annual Meeting and Food Expo, July 18th – 21st at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
For several years, Univar, in collaboration with many of the world’s leading ingredient suppliers, has created a comprehensive and trend-based guide to new ingredient function and formulation for its customers. In 2009, Univar offered this tool for the first time as a PDF-based resource, available on a USB drive. This year, Delivering Discovery builds on the success of last year’s tool by adding the latest supplier ingredient information that fit the trends. Univar’s customers can explore the latest trends, including culinary, natural, healthy enhancement, healthy reduction and convenience to better understand the ingredients that can be used in new formulations. Univar’s formulation tool allows easy “point and click” access to the latest ingredient application information, and an intuitive, browser-like interface that customers can use to navigate technical documents, trend guides and starting formulations.
“The best ingredients for delivering the right function in a specific product can be overlooked without the ability to navigate the information across trends and features,” said Beth Warren, marketing director, Univar Food Ingredients. “Our supplier partners are the leaders in delivering innovation. However, the ability to navigate the trends and ingredient options is difficult for most customers as the technologies change.” Adds Warren, “Univar created this unique format with the support of our global partners to provide customers with a tool that saves them time while delivering more information about novel products and providing new ideas on how to use these ingredients to deliver the best results. Our team is dedicated to our customers’ success.”
To register to receive a complimentary copy of the Delivering Discovery interactive formulation tool kit, IFT attendees can stop by Univar’s Booth #3436. There, they can meet with Univar food specialists who will provide a demonstration of the tool as well as offer insight into formulation challenges and solutions.
