Extreme price volatility can create headaches for food manufacturers. In 2016 alone, the price of Class III cheese rose from just under $13 per hundred weight in May to nearly $17 only three months later. In 2018, however, prices were consistently lower month over month than in 2017. Relief for farmers is expected in the second half of 2019, however, and you can almost hear their collective sigh.
Some suppliers simply fill orders, while others work together as partners to discover innovative formulations that maximize a product’s flavor, texture, nutrition and its appeal to consumers...and even to reduce ingredient costs. This type of collaborative relationship can be the differentiator that ultimately contributes to your product’s success in the marketplace.Read More

With today’s consumers demanding more transparency about where their food comes from and what ingredients it’s made with, shoppers are avoiding genetically modified foods and seeking out more natural, “better for you” alternatives. Whether it’s at the grocery store or their favorite restaurant, today’s health-conscious consumers want food that does more than just feed them; they also want food that nourishes them and provides added health benefits.
Just as today’s consumers are being more health conscious about the food they eat, they’re also looking for more locally sourced food as well. All across the country, farmer’s markets are making a strong resurgence as more people look to support their local farms and buy the freshest produce possible. Known as the Farm-to-Fork (or Farm-to-Table) movement, the closer consumers can get to purchasing an item directly from the farm – as opposed to waiting weeks for food to travel around the country and wind up in a grocery store – the better.
If you’re in the food manufacturing or ingredient supply industries, chances are that you may be heading to the SupplySide West Global Expo & Conference in Las Vegas next week. This year’s SupplySide West Expo is set to be the largest yet – and Grande Custom Ingredients Group® will be there to showcase our functional whey protein products.
