It’s really inspiring

and exciting!

At a time when global food crisis and

halts in supply chain are pronounced,

the flow of industry professionals to Dubai

makes it a fascinating event. We all know

what a fabulous fair Gulfood and Gulfood

Manufacturing are from the more miserable

times. They were very much successful even

amid the pandemic. Now, it is expected

that both fairs and their concurrent event

will be a hub of the industry to generate

unbelievably high trade.

Powering groundbreaking innovation

in the F&B Industry, Gulfood Manufacturing

2022 was the definitive destination to see

the future of food production – from

new ingredients and advanced

technologies to integrated supply chain

solutions and breakthrough developments

driving the industry forward. Gulfood

Manufacturing is certainly a venue to

straight up the FB industry.

The timing of Gulfood Manufacturing

and Gulfood have been set excellent.

November is a good time for

manufacturing techniques and materials

and February is the best time to push the

button for food and beverage production.

Any professional operating in the industry

certainly find what they need for buying,

selling, developing, getting inspired and

learning whatever they need to know.

We, Food & Ingredients International

magazine, a close follower of

international events, have just come from

Gulfood Manufacturing, where we saw

a huge interest in terms of quality and

quantity of exhibitors as well as visitors.

Gulfood Manufacturing was marvelous

as expected. The variety of products,

trendsetting displays, supporting events

and flow of every organized work were

all very professional. Now we will be at FI

Europe Paris. FI Europe is also expected

to be a fascinating venue for all players

of the food ingredients industry. FI Europe

visitors will have Food & Ingredients

magazine during the show.

We already set up for 2023, you will see

us in Gulfood Dubai, Fruit Logistica,

Interpack, Anuga, ISM, FI India, FI Europe

and many more…

I wish a healthy, happy and prosperous year

and lucrative business for all industry reps.

“Redefining Value”

heads Innova Market

Insights’ Top Ten Trends

for 2023, as consumers

adapt to a global costof-living

crisis in the

face of economic and

political volatility. With

budgets stretched and

supplies under strain,

brands need to be

flexible in action and

open in spirit to connect

with consumers,

while also taking full

advantage of rapidly

emerging technological


Top 10 trends for the food and

beverage industry in 2023

The eagerly awaited annual trends from food

innovation and insight specialist Innova are

based on wide-ranging global consumer

surveys. Coupled with comprehensive market

and new product data, they reveal not only

what is driving consumer decisions now, but

also ways in which brands and innovators can

successfully adapt to future realities.

Over the last year, cost and value for money

have become more important to more than half

of food and beverage consumers worldwide.

Today’s shoppers are increasingly exploring

money-saving strategies, such as choosing lower

cost items and cooking from scratch. But they

remain determined to sample new experiences,

ensure personal wellbeing and support

planetary health. There is more pressure on

brands and manufacturers to deliver value while

still meeting these wider public expectations.

“Redefining value throughout the food

and beverage industry will lead in 2023 as

consumers seek brands that listen, understand

and respond to their core values. They

want brands that provide quality, trust and


confidence via their product formulations,

communications and wider sustainability

actions,” highlights Lu Ann Williams, Global

Insights Director at Innova Market Insights.

In addition to a heightened demand for

competitive pricing, consumers have told Innova

they still seek nutritional value and expect a

continued shared responsibility for environmental

security. Meanwhile, younger generations who

have grown up in an inclusive digital age are

gaining greater influence, changing markets

and creating new opportunities. Against that

complex backdrop, here’s a taste of what

Innova’s Top Ten Trends show is in store for the

food and beverage industry in 2023:

1. Redefining value

Brands, innovators, producers and consumers

are wrestling with rising costs and greater

instability. Combating this requires a deep

understanding of where consumers draw the

line on compromise. Strategies such as simple

price increases, or flexible ingredient lists to

cope with supply chain fluctuations, can work

in the short term. However, brands need to be

open in their communication and clearly show

the benefits they are bringing.

Despite political and economic volatility

becoming the second biggest concern for

consumers in 2022, the health of the planet

remains the top global issue and financial

pressures are leading to an increase in ecofriendly

behaviors. Consumers tell Innova they

have reduced food waste and upcycled or

recycled more as part of their belt-tightening.

As the cost-of-living crisis continues, brands

can achieve success through actions that

combine economic benefits with clear

health and sustainability goals.

2. Affordable nutrition

Over the past 12 months, 62% of consumers

have reported a noticeable rise in the cost

of their food and beverages. As a result,



see improvements in taste and texture, but

there is a huge appetite for culinary creativity

and worldwide flavor profiles. Two-thirds

of respondents to Innova’s global survey

expressed a desire to try plant-based versions

of traditional, local cuisines. The industry is

responding with a large increase in readymeal

offerings, while there is great scope for

expansion into meal kits and inventive recipe

combinations. Interest in underused ingredients

is also growing, creating opportunities to

introduce variation in flavor and nutrition while

simultaneously addressing supply concerns.

they are turning their attention to simple but

nutritious goods that are affordable. Key

behaviors include buying in bulk, opting for

private labels, cooking from scratch, reducing

spending on luxury items and purchasing

fewer items. Consumers are actively looking

for affordable ways to maintain a healthy

diet, offering brands many opportunities to

test their capabilities to new limits. To meet

the nutritional, environmental and economic

demands of consumers, manufacturers must

innovate to extract maximum value from raw

materials and the production process.

3. Generational push

Younger consumers, raised in an interactive

digital world, are creating trends and defining

what markets should be providing. For Gen

Z and Millennials, food and brand choices

are important signifiers of lifestyle, beliefs

and values. These demographics have a

strong voice and are used to sharing their

views openly and widely. While health is an

increasingly important purchase driver – as it

also is across older generations – novel and

international flavors are winning the hearts of

a young and experimental audience. These

consumers embrace the new and different,

while being extremely responsive to positive

engagement from brands.

4. Plant-Based: Unlocking a new narrative

The rapid rise of the plant-based sector

has, almost inevitably, hit some roadblocks,

necessitating a refocusing on consumer

demands for high quality, flavorsome products.

No longer merely a mimic, green gastronomy

will blossom as a standalone sector in 2023,

giving brands significant opportunities to

diversify and expand. Consumers still want to

5. Farming the future

Public curiosity for innovative technologies

such as vertical and regenerative farming

is increasing. As well as helping to maximize

flavor, nutrition and yield, these advances can

win consumer support where they are shown

to improve the quality and sustainability of

global food production. Today’s consumer

is increasingly invested in the source of food

as it ties in with major global concerns of

health, sustainability and waste. The welfare

of agricultural workers is equally important,

with 65% of respondents to Innova’s surveys

agreeing they would rather buy fruit and

vegetables from farmer’s markets than large

stores. Brands need to demonstrate how novel

production techniques are benefiting farmers,

people and the planet.

Commenting on the food and beverage

industry’s future direction of travel, Lu Ann

Williams reveals: “At Innova, we have seen a

considerable consumer demand for value

redefined throughout the supply chain, with

creative and flexible approaches to the use

of technology and reducing waste proving

pivotal. With financial concerns a dominating

factor, 2023 is a significant year for new

developments that answer these growing

demands. Based on our consumer and market

research, our Top Trends deliver insights to

support brands as they innovate and grow.”

Top Ten Trends for 2023, including opportunities

in the following areas:

6. Quick Quality

7. Devouring Digital

8. Revenge Spending

9. Unpuzzle Health

10. Positively Imperfect

When we talk about sustainability, sensitivity

for the environment, and protecting our nature,

where does IFF stand at this point?

the booth in Gulfood Manufacturing show,

we recognize importance of evaluating

environmental impact. We develop solutions

that are good for customers, consumers, and

the environment, because we know that this will

allow us to support wider net zero ambitions and

help customers realize their own ESG targets.

IFF has several innovation programs such as

RE-IMAGINE WASTE TM and Upcycle (showcased

in our Planet First Ocean AR zone), new plant

proteins that support the replacement of animalbased

products, antioxidants and antimicrobials

that extend shelf-life, and upcycled flavor

extracts like citrus that reduce food waste, are

just some of the many examples.

Is there anything that you would you like us to

highlight in the interview?

As a global industry leader, we recognize our

role as pioneers of food innovation. With our

expanded flavor & ingredient portfolio and

product design approach, we have merged

science & creativity into our entire process,

produces no CO2 emissions and

consumes 50% less energy

compared to traditional heat

treatment processes.

Eco-friendly, energy

efficient sanitisation

with microwave

and radio frequency

systems by SAIREM

SAIREM, a world-leading

specialist in microwave

(MW) and radio frequency

(RF) industrial solutions

based in Lyon, France, will

showcase the company’s

sanitisation technologies

at FIE, Food Ingredients

Europe, from 6-8 December

2022. The company will

highlight innovative systems

which are suitable for

either decontamination of

ingredients such as powders,

spices, peppercorns,

flours, and nuts etc. or as

disinfestation of plant-based

food and ingredients such

as, cereals, soft wheat and

many more. Responding

to client needs, the French

company has developed

highly efficient processes

to produce ingredients that

are healthy, clean, and

fully compatible with the

requirements of organic

farming certification.

Chemical free destruction

Decontamination with Sairem

RF and MW systems enable

the complete destruction of

mould, yeast, and bacteria,

without the use of toxic

chemical products. The use

of not allowed gas was one

of the most cited reasons

for product withdrawal

in Europe the last years.

This is a major advantage

for food processors and

suppliers serving the

health -and environmentconscious

consumers of

today. Sairem’s systems are

ideal for superfood trend

products and ingredients

to produce plant-based

protein alternatives. Valuable

ingredients such for example

nuts are treated with extreme

care, therefore resulting in

a high-quality end product

and reduction of 4-5 Log.

The efficient RF and MW

process, which only lasts a

few minutes, ensures that

each ingredient is quickly

and uniformly brought to

the required temperature.

As the processing time is so

short, there is no alteration of

the physical, chemical, and

organoleptic properties - all

product characteristics are

perfectly preserved. Other

successful applications

include peppercorns (3.4 Log

reduction) or maize starch

powder (6,87 Log reduction).

Many high-quality ingredients

are exposed to the risk of

contamination by parasites,

and in particular larvae,

moths, and beetles. By the

implementation of Sairem’s

RF and MW technology,

parasites and microorganisms

are deactivated

by short, homogenous

exposure to a microwave

field in a temperaturecontrolled

processing cavity.

For example, products

such as dates, whose high

sugar content makes them

particularly vulnerable to

PARKİM GROUP, manufacturing fragrances and

lotion pumps as well as distributing chemicals

under broad portfolio brings forward its more

than 50 years’ experience now to food industry.

The second generation director, MSc Chemical

Engineer İpek Müstecaplıoğlu explains the

investment process with these words:

“As we set out on this path, our goal was

to convey the professional vision of Parkim

Group to Parkim Flavor & Food Ingredients

through flavors production and food

ingredients distribution. As in every business

line, our claim is to serve our business

partners with a world-class service quality.“

Extensive market research

İpek Müstecaplıoğlu stated that they had

gone through a very long R&D and feasibility

process before starting this journey, and it

was very important for them to establish

the right team in this process. Today, we

work in coordination with our experienced

flavorists and also with the leading

international consultant professionals from

abroad. Production equipped with the

latest technology we have established. With

our facility and R&D laboratory areas, we

provide services to our customers on flavor

production and food ingredients.


International quality standards and regulation

Flavor production of Parkim Flavor&Food

Ingredients, takes place at the new Production

facility in Gebze Organization Zone. Considering

the sensitivity of Food in quality and certification,

our company acts within the scope of the FSCC

22000 food safety management system and

blossom, sakura in line with this trend. We are

very happy to travel with them on their journey.

Integrative service to the food industry: Food

Ingredients Distribution

İpek Müstecaplıoğlu stated that they first

entered the sector with liquid flavors; Liquid

flavors appeal to the bakery, chocolate,

confectionery, ice cream and beverage

industries. Our forward-looking investments

continue rapidly and we aim to use different

technologies in time. In addition to our flavor

production, we try to meet these demands

by importing some food ingredients that

our customers use during production, by

keeping stocks and on the basis of exclusive

distributions. These consist of general and some

more qualified special food raw materials such

Dehydrated potato market

sheds light on changing

consumer habits

The value-added version of the potato is preparing to appeal to the palate

with its different varieties and colors. The dehydrated potato market

is creating a new alternative that is ready to make moves determined to

impress consumers in terms of flavor and health integrity, unlike other uses.

The process of drying and grinding starchy

root vegetables has been widely approved

around the world, mainly because of its

convenience and portability. Dehydrated

potatoes in particular find application in a

variety of end uses, making them a versatile

product. According to its shape, dehydrated

potatoes are available as flakes, sliced and

chopped pieces, and powder and granules,

which have a variety of different applications

in food processing and preparation.

Dehydrated potatoes are gaining popularity

as a food additive due to their thickening

and binding properties. Dehydrated potato

products have also gained popularity in

recent years as food additives, as they

add nutritional value to various foods. The

functional and nutritional properties of

dehydrated potatoes, combined with the

convenience factor, have led to its rapid

adoption, which has had a positive impact

on the growth of the global dehydrated

potato products market.

Dehydrated potato products are processed

food products made from whole, raw potatoes

that are cleaned, peeled, sliced, precooked,

cooled, cooked, mashed and either drum dried

into flake form or air dried into granule form.

Of the various forms in which dehydrated

potato products are available, the most

popular is potato flakes. The segment is

expected to expand at a moderate CAGR


of 4% in value. will remain

Figure 1: Spray agglomeration, spray granulation, microencapsulation

and film, lipid and hotmelt coating give powders and liquids improved

properties for easier handling in diverse applications.

Fluid bed and spouted bed technologies

Optimising functional ingredients

for enhanced nutrition

Fluidised bed and spouted bed processes by Glatt offer manufacturers almost

unlimited possibilities in terms of optimised particle design and the functionalisation

of ingredients, the properties of which can be fine-tuned using spray granulation,

agglomeration, microencapsulation and film, lipid and hotmelt coating.

Consumer demand for fortified products is

constantly growing and has been well received

by end users. The form in which health-promoting

probiotics, dietary fibres or antioxidants are

consumed depends on both the preferences

and everyday habits of the individual. Whatever

the format, though, an universal requirement is

that functional ingredients must be stable during

storage, precisely dosed, dissolve quickly, are well

bioavailable or have a depot effect.


Fluidised bed and spouted bed processing is

ideally suited to the large-scale production

of these ingredients. In many branches of

the industry, these technologies are used to

agglomerate powders, dry liquid ingredients

into granules or pellets, encapsulate them in

microcapsules and, if required, encase them

in a functional coating (Fig. 1).

Fluidised bed principle

Both fluid bed and spouted bed technologies

are based on the principle of fluidising particles

using an upward-flowing process gas (Fig. 2, 3).

Also used to bulk dry a variety of materials, both

technologies make the process more efficient

by suspending the material to be dried and

exposing its entire surface to the process gas.

Spray granulation:

from liquids to granules in a single process step

Fluid bed spray granulation is an efficient way

to convert liquid raw materials directly into

free-flowing, compact and dust-free granules.

Spray granulation enables granule formation

and release control to be done in a single

step. This enables the drying of liquid food

additives - such as stabilisers, flavours, vitamins

or sweeteners - while precisely adjusting their

particle size, residual moisture levels and

solids content, resulting in round pellets with

excellent physical properties.


protection of volatile and sensitive

active substances

Microencapsulation is also based on the

principle of granulation. Valuable substances

that require special protection are often

present in powder or even liquid form. This

encapsulation process is used in particular for

products and ingedients for the food industry.

With the inclusion of an active substance in a

solid matrix, microcapsules provide an ideal

vehicle to control and protect vitamins, flavours

or polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), as well

as volatile essential oils. In the field of microencapsulation,

Glatt has conducted various

case studies on formulation and process

optimization strategies based on encapsulation

efficiency. Depending on the preferred principle,

based on the properties of the customer’s

active ingredients to be encapsulated, a wide

range of available technical equipment can

be customized in terms of cost, efficiency and

formulation properties.

Film, lipid and hotmelt coating:

functional surfaces

Fluidised bed spray coating is the method

of choice when the optimisation of product

properties involves, for example, controlled

release mechanisms, modifying the surface

structure for higher thermal and oxidation

stability and/or masking odours or flavours

associated with certain ingredients. Film or

hot-melt coatings are also proven solutions

that enhance important requirements such as

long-term stability, resistance to oxidation and

targeted release. A functional film coating

not only provides a smooth layer that makes

capsules easy to swallow, it also offers a

protective barrier against light and moisture.

Spray agglomeration:

perfect solubility and homogeneous mixtures

Spray agglomeration is used to convert

powdery raw materials into homogenous

easy-to-disperse (instant) products in a single

process step. The process involves spraying a

liquid into a fluidised bed and forming liquid

bridges between the colliding particles. The

liquid bridges are dried and solidified; as such,

the fine powder is transformed into coarser

agglomerates with a larger grain structure and

improved application properties. The stable

bonds reduce the risk of breakage and abrasion

during handling, processing and storage.

Certain formulations can be agglomerated

using water as the binding agent, which

generates sufficient liquid bridges by

moistening and partly dissolving the surface

of the powder. If harder, more stable

particles are required - as a prerequisite for

further processing, for example - this can

be controlled by binder substance viscosity,

process time and temperature profile.

Fluidised bed spray agglomeration is an

important process for substances destined

for solid dosage applications, such as vitamin

formulations and dried probiotics. Like minerals

and micronutrients, their particle structure,

moisture and bulk density must be adjusted

according to the application. When filling into

cans, capsules or sachets, or compressing into

effervescent tablets, reproducible product

properties such as blend uniformity, flowability

and particle size have to be ensured.

From benchtop to industry scale

Available at the company’s technology

centre in Weimar, Germany, Glatt offers a wide

range of laboratory and pilot plant for early

stage trials and testing. For new particle and

product forms, customers benefit from short

development times without having to invest in

new technology or additional personnel (Fig. 4).

State-of-the-art equipment provides a fast and

reliable way to obtain results for feasibility studies,

product requirements and sample quantities

for performance evaluation or marketing. In

addition, up to the plant commissioning stage,

Glatt offers contract manufacturing services that

fill any in-house production gaps and expedite

time-to-market. From initial idea to the finished

product or production plant, the company

provides a flexible and competent interface

throughout the entire value chain.

Further information including examples

for products and installed plants

in selected projects is available

Immune health still top priority for

functional beverage consumers,

but other needs on the rise

Immune, gut and heart health continue as

important concerns for functional beverage

consumers, while beauty and sports

performance are on the rise, according to new

research by Kerry, the world’s leading taste

and nutrition company.

Kerry surveyed over 10,000 consumers from

18 countries across North America, South

America Europe, Asia Pacific, South Africa

and Australia to learn more about their

changing priorities and preferred ingredients

in functional and fortified beverages.

The research found that immune support is

still the highest health priority for consumers

and is a particular focus not only in the US

and UK, but also across developing markets

including Guatemala, Brazil, South Africa,

the Philippines and India.


A total of 53% of global consumers are

interested in beverages containing ingredients

specific for immune support but want to see

science-backed ingredients, citing vitamin

blends, omega-3 fatty acids and probiotics

as the top ingredients on their radar. Although

the overall taste experience is vital, the

primary focus of consumers is on the nutritional

impact of these products and the quality of

ingredients used in them.

Need states differ by age and life stage

- implying a need for customised and

personalised solutions, with the research

indicating a holistic need to improve inner

and outer wellness. Consumers are also more

proactive and have come to understand the

link between long-term health and nutrition

and achieving their beauty goals. A desire to

address weight management, heart health,

muscle recovery, energy, endurance and bone

health all point to a desire for all-round wellness.

A preference for beverages supporting skin

and hair beauty was more pronounced in

several developing markets (such as the

Philippines, South Africa, Indonesia, India,

Poland, Brazil, Colombia and Guatemala)

and continues to be a priority in leading

markets including the US and UK. New product

launches containing collagen have risen by

19% over the past four years and products

containing biotin have risen by 14% during the

same period (Innova, 2022).

research, a total of 86% of consumers stated

they would pay a premium for food and

beverages with added functional benefits.

“Consumers today have compounding need

states. While their top priority need states

remained consistent over the years, there

is growing focus on balance - balancing

beauty with digestive support, immunity with

sports performance, as consumers seek their

personalized idea functional and fortified

solution. To win in this space, manufacturers

need to create products that support top

concerns such as immune, digestive, cognitive,

joint and heart health, and include sciencebacked

functional ingredients to increase

credibility. Kerry can transform your idea into

a market leading functional beverage or

supplement, with a toolbox of solutions and

ingredients from botanical extracts to sciencebacked

ingredients like Wellmune ® and

BC30 to help your brand innovate across a

broad number of consumer need states.”

Meanwhile, products geared towards sports

performance, muscle recovery and endurance

are also no longer the preserve of athletes;

they are high on the agendas of many

thousands of “weekend warriors” who are keen

to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.

Potential for innovation

With the global functional beverage market

predicted to grow at 10.49% annually,

reaching nearly $200 billion by 2026 (Food

Institute 2021), there is ample opportunity to

innovate in this space.

Commenting on the findings, Soumya Nair,

Global Director of Consumer Research and

Insights at Kerry said: “A significant opportunity

exists in the functional and fortified space, with

the conventional line between supplements

and beverages blurring. According to our



Strict limits for aromatic mineral oil

hydrocarbons (MOAH) approaching

Nutriswiss edible oils already exceed the future purity standard.

As a result of its own sourcing and innovative

processes, Nutriswiss, the Swiss market leader

for speciality and organic edible oils, already

converts contaminated oils into safe food.

In-house laboratory analyses show MOAH

values close to the detection limit after

refining. After alarming investigation results

published by the non-profit organization

Foodwatch 1 , the EU Standing Committee on

Plants, Animals, Food and Feed has defined

a level at which foods should be withdrawn

from the market. The guidance values are

expected to be transferred into applicable

limits by the member states from 2023.

For oils and fats, the EU Committee specifies a

MOAH guidance value of 2 mg/kg. In addition,

it sets an MOAH value of 0.5 mg/kg for dry

foods with a low fat/oil content (up to 4%)

and up to 1 mg/kg for foods with a higher fat/

oil content (more than 4%). 2 Several scientific

studies indicate that aromatic mineral oils are

potentially carcinogenic and mutagenic. 3 4

MOAH in edible oils such as rapeseed or palm

can originate from different places, such as

tire abrasion, exhaust gases or machine oil.

In the Nutriswiss laboratory, a comprehensive

key figure profile is created for each oil before,

during and after processing. This clearly shows

that the self sourced materials are significantly

less contaminated on arrival at the plant than

standard market goods, which is also reflected in

the MOAH values. In supply chain management,

Nutriswiss relies on long-term contractual

partners, logistics in ISO containers according

to food grade standards, and its own controls to

ensure the highest raw material quality.


Gentle refining

For the removal of MOAH, Nutriswiss does not

use time- and temperature-intensive processes.

Instead, the experts rely on physical treatment

using modern distillation technology followed

by mild deodorization. In this way, the formation

of process contaminants is prevented,

whereas MOSH/MOAH, pesticides, polycyclic

hydrocarbons (PAH) and plasticizers such as

DEHP are significantly reduced. Michel Burla,

CEO of Nutriswiss, says: “A fixed limit value for

MOAH is long overdue because contaminants

have no place in any food. The EU guideline

values now provide the political framework

that we already adhere to on a voluntary basis.

Regardless of the new regulations, we take our

responsibility very seriously; the oils and fats that

leave our plant are safe to eat.”

in Pemuco is an important milestone for us.”

Globally, consumer interest in prebiotics continues

to grow and has already seen an increase from

51% in 2018 to 61% in 2022. İ To cater for this rising

demand, BENEO will open a new refinery line in

Pemuco, Chile, by the end of this year, leading

to a 15% increase of its total chicory root fibres

capacity. This will be followed by an additional

15% increase due to be completed next spring,

resulting in a total increase of 30%. While

ensuring a secure supply of chicory root fibres,

Aqua Dominus offers

environmentally friendly

waters effortlessly

and at less cost

Access to quality potable water is now a red alert

in many societies. At this point, Aqua Dominus ensures that you

no longer see quick and easy access to water as a luxury.

Aqua Dominus offers pure and

environmentally friendly water, obtained

with simplicity and minimal costs.

Access to quality drinking water is on red alert

in many countries today.

The possible water crisis is pushing large

companies around the world to adopt

alternative ways of using water resources.

In view of this situation, the Italian company

Aqua Dominus Technologies, has proposed

itself to the market by offering a new water

culture, and ensuring that access to quality

water is quick and easy, and no longer

considered a luxury.

The company has signed up to a series

of projects and initiatives, which, while

respecting nature, enhance its sustainability,

it distributes, mainly in Europe, a significant

quantity of innovative products and

equipment in the water sector.

Aqua Dominus, which can be defined as

a young and dynamic company, sets itself,

through its industrial production, aims to

optimise the use of water resources.

Innovative equipment: technologically

sophisticated, but simple and practical to use,

making drinking water clear, pure and healthy.

Aqua Dominus, began to establish itself in

the sector in the early 2000s by proposing the

new experience of purified drinking water,

adapted to one’s tastes and needs, directly at

the point of use.

This proved to be a new and pleasant

experience for users!

The Brand, which has developed with a new

and special focus on growing environmental


issues, aims to make a

contribution to the development

of an increasingly recyclable

and sustainable world.

It offers environmentally friendly,

practical, safe and affordable


A unique opportunity to step into the

future and reduce the use of plastic bottles.

Plastic containers and bottles are increasingly

causing visible damage to the entire planet.

Dispersed in the environment they only

degrade over 400 years or more.

According to some research, the average time

a plastic bottle is used is only 15 minutes, and

consider that about 1 million are sold every

minute in the world !

Researchers Hannah Ritchie and Max Roser, of

Oxford University, have established that only

9% of these are recycled, 12% are incinerated

and the rest end up in the common waste or in

the ocean waters.

All this causes only one thing:

the massacre of the planet.

Sometimes it takes centuries for the waste we

throw away in nature to dissolve and become

inert, mixing with soil, air and water.

For this reason, natural water resources are in a

critical condition and people are increasingly

at risk of drinking unsafe water that can

threaten their health.

Furthermore, it is known that

worldwide, water suitable for

consumption is being rapidly

depleted, and that only 3% of

the available resources are being

properly utilised.

Preserving and conserving

adequate water reserves for future

generations therefore seems almost

impossible in the current situation.

Although some countries make serious

investments in this regard, this is not enough

to eliminate the problems of unconscious or

inconsiderate water consumption and the use

of plastic bottles.

All these dangers force us to consider that

purification systems are now absolutely

indispensable, and it is an undeniable fact

that the use of such equipment will have

to be further developed in the future: to

protect nature, protect our planet and build a

healthier tomorrow for all of us.

Individual water treatment will be a safe

investment for the future.

In light of the research carried out and the

data that has emerged, Aqua Dominus

Technologies has been committed to this,

offering specific sustainable and ecological

products for some time now.

The company, which favours systems that

provide targeted solutions to such problems,



already offers more than 50 products using this

technology, and continues its research and

development studies for further production

alternatives on a daily basis.

In this context, the food and ho.re.ca. sector are

among the leading industries in terms of drinking

water consumption, so the economic factor is

certainly not of secondary importance either.

According to a careful assessment of the

market, for example, the daily requirement

of water for sale in an average restaurant

is about 250 litres, which if met with bottled

water will produce in a single year: 60,000

plastic bottles, the consumption of 10 tonnes

of oil to make them, and over 2.7 tonnes of

CO2 released into the air.

In addition to the damage to the environment

and our health, if we consider the cost of

purchasing, storing and refrigerating this water,

we can at that point, without a shadow of

a doubt, state that on-site water treatment

systems are much cheaper than any other

method, as well as safer.

The company, which we questioned, stated

that it intends to reach all major European

cities with additional outlets, and announced

that it will contact and inform customers

directly to inform them of the possibility of

using these alternative tools.

The Aqua Dominus managers, think that in the

future there will be a ‘water purifier’ in every

home, to be used like the other appliances

now present in every home: such as ovens,

dishwashers or other electrical appliances,

and they are thinking of integrating this new

system with many others.

Already today, the Aqua Dominus catalogue

presents more than 50 models of devices as well

as accessories for them, all made of stainless

steel, glass and other materials, which in addition

to being all certified, are fully recyclable several

times over and suitable for various needs.

It has been observed that those approaching

such systems for the first time and savouring

the quality of purified, cooled and carbonated

water to their taste, decisively choose and

prefer these products.

Pure and good-tasting!

Communities that desire quality water can,

with this equipments, quickly access healthy

water thanks to the purification processes.

The water that passes through the microfilters

and subsequent treatments, is as clear as

spring water and pleasant in taste.

All potentially harmful chemicals, microbes

and bacteria, turbidity, colour and odour

are removed. At the same time, the water is

softened by reducing its salt content, a unique

choice for a healthy future.

The brand offers water produced with different

techniques and equipment, offering several

product lines, which are explained:

purified water in elegant and refined

containers of the finest crystal-clear glass,

customised to their needs.

This line includes equipment capable of

delivering up to 280 litres/hour of treated and

chilled water.

Top Commercial

The commercial line, preferred above all by

medium and large enterprises, is also used by

commercial companies, law firms, gyms, etc.,

which make corporate welfare and modernity

an added value.

It is also offered to consumers with equipment

for work groups in facilities with a small number

of employees and collaborators. Finally,

Domestic Line

Intended primarily for private homes, and

preferably for use in kitchens.

Where they are used, in addition to drinking

water, for any other kitchen use: tea, coffee,

steaming etc.

These treatment systems remove contaminants

from the water, particularly those originating in

and coming from the aqueduct network.

They produce water distinctly suitable for

human consumption, avoiding the short or long

term risk of possible negative health effects.

Aqua Dominus offers environmentally friendly,

practical, safe and cost-effective equipment.

Without a shadow of a doubt, the onsite

water treatment system is much more

convenient, compared to others, as well

as safer, which is why Aqua Dominus is

committed to initiatives to publicise and

disseminate these systems to consumers.

The company, which intends to ensure its

presence in all major European cities with

additional outlets, has announced that it

will put in place information systems aimed

directly at its potential customers.

A representative of the company stated that

A.D. will continue to work in the most favourable

way to optimise the use of water resources,

and he is of the opinion that water treatment

systems and equipment will be massively

present in the coming years in our homes,

workplaces, restaurants and hospitality sector.

While we live in the midst of a critical period for

the environment, which we will surely drag

on with its effects for at least the next 30 years,

we can help safeguard our planet and our future

by including water treatment systems in your life.

Professional Line

which allows those who use water as a

commercial product, to serve their customers


Ulusoy Un



largest flour


Ulusoy Un, which was established in 1969 and

has turned into one of the few food companies

in Turkey today, makes a name for itself with

its 4 production facilities and exports to 91

countries in 5 continents. Ulusoy Un, Turkey’s

only and largest flour producer traded in the

Stock Exchange, has increased its production

capacity 4.5 times, its equity 9 times, the

number of employees 3.5 times, and its exports

2.5 times, from the date of its public offering in

November 2014 until the first half of 2022.

According to 2014 data, Ulusoy’s shareholders’

equity increased from 162 million TL to 1 billion

440 million TL in the first half of 2022, the number

of employees increased from 199 to 701, the

number of days of wheat processing increased

from 900 tons/day to 3925 tons/day, and its

exports from $42,96 million to 42.96 million.

Ulusoy Un, has the largest and most digital

flour production facility in Turkey, with the 50th

Year Production Facility, which it established in

Samsun Organized Food Industry.

Making a statement on the subject, Ulusoy

Un Chairman of the Board Dr. Eren Günhan

Ulusoy said, “Our activities in the food

sector, which started with Ulusoy Gıda in

1969, continued in the industry with the

establishment of Ulusoy Un in 1989.

Today, Ulusoy Un’s three factories with a total

wheat processing capacity of 3925 tons/day in

4 production facilities: 2085 tons/day in Samsun,

400 tons/day in Çorlu, 640 tons/day in Aydın and

800 tons/day in Ankara. and silos, warehouses

and free zone warehouses with a grain storage

capacity of more than 300 thousand tons.


As Ulusoy Un, we made 3 important moves in

terms of investments in the post-IPO period.

The first is our 50th Anniversary Production

Facility, which we have just established in

Samsun Food Organized Industrial Zone. We

have completed the production lines part of

the project by commissioning the 4th and

last unit of our 50th Anniversary Production

Facility, which we commissioned in December

2019 in the first phase, in June 2022. The

second important step is to have a storage

capacity of 169 thousand tons in our 3 licensed

warehouses in Çelikli/Kırıkkale, Alaca/Çorum

and Yozgat/Sorgun. The third important step

was the acquisition of Söke A.Ş. We are the

company with the largest consolidated flour

production capacity in Turkey at the moment.”

“We aim to be Turkey’s largest agricultural

industry and food company in 2029”

Hygiene conditions at the 50th Year

Production Facility, which was designed using

the latest technology, were brought to the

highest point and turned into Turkey’s most

digital and exemplary factory. Stating that his

claims are to have a production facility with

the highest standards in food in the world, Dr.

Ulusoy Un, that is Turkey’s

largest flour producer and

only publicly-traded flour

company, increased its

wheat processing capacity

from 900 tons/day to 3925

tons/day with its 50th

Year Production Facility,

which it established in

Samsun Organized Gıda

Sanayi. Ulusoy Un, which

has increased its wheat

processing capacity by 4.5

times since its public offering

in November 2014, aims to

become Turkey’s largest

agricultural industry and

food company in 2029.

Dr. Eren Günhan Ulusoy,

Board Chairman of Ulusoy Un



Eren Günhan Ulusoy pointed out that Ulusoy Un

is the only flour company traded in the stock

market in Turkey and shared the following:

“Ulusoy Un went public on 20.11.2014 and its

shares started to be traded in Borsa Istanbul.

With Ulidaş Tarım Ürünleri Licensed Warehousing

Joint Stock Company, which was established

on 27.02.2015 as a 100% subsidiary of our

company, an investment has been made in the

licensed warehousing system, which we can

consider as the future of the agricultural sector.

Currently, it continues its licensed warehousing

activities with a total capacity of 169,000 tons

in 3 regions, 42.000 tons in Çorum/ Alaca,

67.000 tons in Yozgat/Sorgun and 60.000 tons in

Kırıkkale/Çerikli. Our subsidiary named ROLWEG

SA was established in Geneva, Switzerland on

15.03.2018, with 100% of its capital owned by

Ulusoy Un Sanayi ve Ticaret AŞ. On 18.09.2019,

Alfaway Gıda Sanayi ve Ticaret AŞ, flour sales

and marketing was established with 100% of

the capital belonging to Ulusoy Un Industry and

Trade AŞ. Our company purchased all of Söke

Un shares on 11.01.2022.”

Underlining that they currently have the

most innovative facility in the flour industry,

Ulusoy stated that their goal is to become

Turkey’s largest agricultural industry and food

company in 2029.

“Turkey is a country with alternatives even if it

doesn’t have a corridor mission”

The Eurasia President of the International Flour

Industrialists and Grains Association (IAOM),

Dr. Eren Günhan Ulusoy also drew attention to

the fact that Turkey has become the world’s


Dr. Eren Günhan Ulusoy,

Board Chairman of Ulusoy Un

grain hub with the grain corridor. Ulusoy said,

“The most critical aspect of this corridor is

its contribution to the world’s wheat supply.

Because when the products produced in

Ukraine cannot reach the world, it is not

possible to maintain the balance. Thanks to the

corridor, a very important step was taken for

this balance. Turkey has given the whole world

an opportunity to overcome this food crisis.

Among the countries to which products are

shipped from the grain corridor, Spain ranks first

with 1.8 million tons, and Turkey ranks second

with 1.3 million tons. Turkey both acted as the

guarantor of this agreement and procured

a significant amount of products from this

corridor. During the closure period, there were

negotiations with other alternative supply

countries. Although Turkey is not a corridor, it is

a country with alternatives. This year’s harvest is

better than last year thanks to the rains.

Turkey hosted the Joint Control Center (JCC),

which controls the ships to be loaded and

loaded in Ukraine. With the continuation of

the agreement after November 19, Turkey

will continue to play a leading role. In fact,

there is also the use of Turkey as a transit point

where products are downloaded, stored and

resent, as envisaged in natural gas. With a

licensed warehouse capacity of 8.5 million

tons and a storage capacity at ports, Turkey

has a sufficient infrastructure to do this. Turkey

can take on such a role in a situation where it

is not sure about the corridor.”

anlamına geldiğini belirterek; “Gıda üreticileri

ve işleyicileri, teknolojiye daha fazla yatırım

yaparak ürünlerini kusursuz sunmaya ve rekabet

güçlerini arttırmaya çalışıyorlar. Osman Akça,

bu anlamda alanında dünyada örnek bir

firma. Son olarak ayıklamayı daha verimli,

daha etkili ve daha düşük maliyetli hale getiren

en yeni teknolojileri sunduğumuz TOMRA 5C

makinesinin kurulumunu Manisa’daki tesislerinde

gerçekleştirmiştik. Bu makinemiz, kuru meyve ve

kabuklu yemiş sektöründeki en büyük zorlukları

vardır. Bu durumda, hangi teknolojinin

daha iyi olduğu değil, sizin özel

uygulamanız ve bütçeniz için hangi

teknolojinin en uygun olduğu sorusudur.

“Metal detector, X-Ray or Both When

Checking for Foreign Matters in Food Safety?”

Uğur Tuncer, Business Area Manager PI

(Product Inspection) at Mettler Toledo

Türkiye said, “The quality and safety of food

and pharmaceutical products depends

on the level of due diligence exercised

during the production process, in order to

exclude physical contaminants out of the

finished product. The choice of protection

and inspection equipment has a significant

impact on product quality, product safety

and consumer confidence. Of the inspection

choices manufacturers face, a key one is

whether to install a metal detection system,

an x-ray inspection system, or both.

In some circumstances metal detection is

a clear winner; in others x-ray inspection

comes out on top. But not everything is

quite so clear-cut. Often there is not much

to choose between them. And sometimes

the most reliable solution may well be

to install both technologies in different

locations on the production line.

Metal detection and x-ray inspection offer

differing capabilities. In some ways that -

makes choosing between them simple.

You can lay out a grid of features and see

which ones match your application or

you can reduce the problem to a series

of questions. The answers to the questions

should generally lead you to straight to one

technology or the other.

But neither approach is infallible. There

is an area of overlap between the

two technologies where you could


Satın alma maliyetlerini düşünürken,

metal dedektör sistemi her zaman daha

uygun fiyatlı çözümdür. Ancak, bir ürünün

geri çağrılmasının ve tüketici güveninin

kaybolmasına yol açan itibar kaybı -

maliyetlerinin, onu koruyacak ekipmanın

maliyetlerini kolayca gölgede bırakabileceğini

akılda tutmakta fayda var,” dedi.




choose either one. Then it’s not so much a

question of which technology is better, but

which technology is most appropriate for your

particular application and budget.

When thinking about purchase costs, metal

detection is invariably cheaper. However, it is worth

bearing in mind that a product recall, and the

costs of a damaged reputation leading to loss of

consumer confidence, could easily dwarf the costs

of the equipment that would have protected it. said.

including foreign guests from 18 different countries

that simplifies formulation and production

processes when using pectin in gummies.

“As a supplier to beverage, confectionery,

• Eliminates dust created during use

of malic acid.

• Significantly reduces the possibility of

blending errors.

Pecmate is developed for brand owners and

contract manufacturers developing gummies

and other products that use pectin, which

is harder to work with and less forgiving

than alternatives like gelatin. It provides the

following benefits:

• Prevents pre-gelling during production.

• Holds pH in the proper range, allowing

gummies to stay fluid and set up properly

when acid is added.

• Creates a greater range of workability for

pectin formulation than the limited range

when working with pectin alone.
