Functional Foods and Ingredients

Industry Overview:
 

Consumers’ health and aging concerns mean exploding demand for new functions for food by adding or improving ingredients. Expert development of biologically active compounds leads to health benefits beyond basic nutrition. Opportunities for creative thinking abound. Cargill added fiber to pretzels, for example, and now helps people eat more healthily and avoid empty calories.

Functional foods also can help consumers deal with concerns about sleep, weight management and aging. Employees increase their value if they conceive new products, develop them quickly, safely and efficiently, and deal with regulatory, sustainability and marketing issues.

I was very impressed, from planning to execution, with the professionalism of Robbie and the Ropella Group. Robbie understood exactly what the unique needs of the client were and presented only strong candidates, along with a candid and accurate assessment of each. I can honestly say that we would not have been successful in securing the best individual without the support of the Ropella Group.
