Faster, Focused and Personalized

It’s said that we have seen more change in food consumption patterns in the last 10 years than we have seen in the last century. Consumers change and adapt to new food trends faster than ever before: issues such as wellness, lifestyle, personalized nutrition and other trends now evolve faster than at any time before in our history. New taste sensations move from high end restaurants to the general population in just a matter of months, compared to a matter of years a decade ago as they are driven by food trucks, food stars and social networks. Solutions to feed an ever-growing global population such as cultured meat and vertical farming are knocking at the door. E-commerce is resulting in a massive shift to the retail landscape, and it’s not too long before our meals are delivered by drones. The aging population will require nutritious and exciting foods created by companies with totally new business models. It’s the era of high velocity change. Futurist Jim Carroll will inspire your vision and help you put these trends and many more in perspective as he will be the opening keynote speaker at Benefit 2018. Jim’s clients include NASA, Disney, Johnson & Johnson, Bombardier, Godiva Chocolates, Boehringer Ingelheim, Lockheed Martin, to name just a few.


The international rendezvous on health ingredients that will be held from October 2 to 4, 2018, at the Quebec City Convention Centre in Canada. Anchored in Quebec City’s reputation for excellence in food and health, BENEFIQ is a must-attend event sparking synergy among scientists and industry professionals from this rapidly evolving sector.
An initiative of the Institute of Nutrition and Functional Foods (INAF)
