Bell Validates Global Spark Trends at the 2023 IFT FIRST: Annual Event & Expo

Bell Flavors & Fragrances Validates Global Spark Trends at the 2023 IFT FIRST: Annual Event & Expo 

 

Global Flavors and Fragrances Company Confirms 2023 Trend Forecasts at the World’s Leading Food Industry Showcase in Chicago, IL from July 16-19  

NORTHBROOK, Illinois – August 3, 2023

Bell Flavors & Fragrances, Inc. (Bell) confirmed key trend predictions and forecasts at the 2023 Institute of Food Technologists’ (IFT) FIRST: Annual Event & Expo from July 16-19 inside McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.  

 Attracting 17,000 international visitors and 1,100 exhibitors, the annual convention, hosted by the Institute of Food Technology (IFT), once again proved its value as the place for trendspotting and networking in the global food industry. 

What’s more, the products and technologies on display at McCormick Place confirmed key forecasts from Bell’s global Spark – Ignites Creativity, Inspires Senses® program. Specifically, IFT FIRST showcased innovative methods to enhance natural ingredients and resources ( ‘Nature R*Evolution’), support healthy lifestyles and longevity (‘A Better Me’) and spark joy with impactful flavor experiences (‘360-Degree Rewards’). 

Every year, Bell Flavors & Fragrances invests considerable resources to capture the most important dynamics impacting consumers across the globe. It was reassuring to witness key trends from this year’s forecast confirmed by technologies and innovations displayed at the 2023 IFT FIRST: Annual Event & Expo.” – Kelli Heinz, Vice President of Marketing and Industry Affairs

 

“IFT FIRST confirmed our central Spark Trends predictions for 2023 and beyond. We see it as a true testament to the accuracy of the global Spark Trends platform and the immense value we provide every single year to Bell customers. Bell returns from IFT FIRST inspired and encouraged by the level of innovation and forward-looking research to support the future of the global food system, with our Spark Trends program leading the way.” – David Banks, Senior Director of Marketing

 

Key observations from attending IFT FIRST 2023 include the following predictions featuring three Spark Macro Trends: 

As the central theme of IFT FIRST 2023, the show evaluated solutions to current challenges in the food supply asking, “Innovation in a Time of Crisis: Can We Future-Proof the Food System?” In the process, unmodified ingredients and technologies for enhancing nature provide much-needed answers. 

Seeing the Trend at IFT FIRST 2023: Nature R*Evolution figured prominently in a vast variety of alternative protein products, using the latest tech for masking, neutralization, and mouthfeel enhancement alongside natural flavors. Also trending, extenders and replacers provided powerful solutions to challenges in global supply chains, most importantly, honey and citrus varieties. Plus, a new slew of natural sweetness enhancers and upcycled byproducts (e.g., coffee fruit) squeeze more value out of strained food supplies.   

Speaking of enhancing value, the quest for healthier lifestyles presented the number one leading consumer trend at IFT FIRST 2023. True to Bell’s Spark Macro Trend, ‘A Better Me,’ consumers demand functional benefits and tangible health improvements from their food. The trend that took the proverbial cake at IFT FIRST? Sugar reduction! 

Seeing the Trend at IFT FIRST 2023: The health-focused trends resonate with the mission of IFT FIRST, which is short for “Food Improved by Research, Science, and Technology.” Featured functional ingredients and technologies sought to boost of alertness, immunity, and sleep via mushrooms and probiotics. Collagen for healthy aging and low-carb starches for weight management were also in the spotlight. 

The industry demands serious answers to serious challenges, but flavor is still the number one factor influencing purchase decisions. In line with our Spark Trend for ‘360° Rewards’, consumers increasingly use delicious foods to treat themselves with delight and experience culinary escapes. Based on research presented at IFT FIRST, most consumers want familiar flavors with a slightly new twist. According to Bell’s Micro Trend, ‘Newstalgia’, right now is the time to score big with beloved classics, as 59% of U.S. chocolate consumers enjoy familiar flavors in new product releases (Mintel, 2023). 

Seeing the Trend at IFT FIRST 2023: The show featured familiar flavors and recipes with their volume turned up to the max. Whether it was extra-stuffed chocolate cookies, explosive umami snack mixes, double-glazed meatballs, BLT-flavored potato chips, and extra hot pepper sauces – companies are serving comfort foods without stepping beyond the comfort zone.

Global Flavors and Fragrances Company Leans Into ‘Newstalgic’ Flavors at Upcoming Show in Chicago, IL from July 16-19 at Booth #S1624 Inside McCormick Place

NORTHBROOK, Illinois – June 19, 2023

Bell Flavors & Fragrances, Inc. (Bell) will be heading to the 2023 Institute of Food Technologists’ (IFT) FIRST Annual Event & Expo held in person from July 16-19 inside McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.

IFT FIRST is the largest business-to-business food innovation expo, bringing together professionals from across the globe with the collective vision of improving food through research, science and technology. Over the course of four days, exhibitors will showcase new innovations, global trends and the latest cutting-edge research and technology, complemented by strategic networking and business prospecting opportunities.

This year, Bell’s booth (find us at #S1624) showcases food and beverage concepts tied into their global Spark – Ignites Creativity, Inspires Senses® program. Bell’s Spark Trends platform tracks five key consumer Macro Trends impacting consumers today and in the future. These Macro Trends, collectively identified by Bell’s global marketing teams, represent the core behavioral values shared by all humans.

At IFT FIRST 2023, Bell leans into ‘Newstalgia,’ a Micro Trend within the broader 360° Rewards Macro Trend, featuring a menu and booth design inspired by a decade marked by grunge music, blockbuster movies, experimental flavors and Michael Jordan superfans: the 1990s. Newstalgia is the twist that everyone loves, blending the familiar with the excitement of something new, drawing inspiration from pop culture and refurbishing retro phenomena from different decades.

“We are excited to revisit the ‘90s this year at IFT through Bell’s ‘Newstalgia’ Micro Trend. Our product showings interweave old trends that are still relevant with a modern touch, drawing inspiration from pop culture and refurbishing retro phenomena from our favorite ‘90s staples. Reinventing the ‘90s has been one of the most exciting trends Bell has put forth and we are thrilled to have everyone go back in time for a totally rad experience.” – Kelli Heinz, Vice President of Marketing and Industry Affairs 

 

“This year, our culinary team has created a fun and flavorful trip back to the 1990’s, including adventurous formats that are guaranteed to transport you to the birth of crazy flavors and bizarre eating experiences. Consumers continue to seek the comforting moment of their youth, but with a real-world twist. We are seeing this ‘Newstalgic’ approach increasingly come to life as Gen Xer’s look to relive their youth and crave their childhood favorites with a Gen Z twist. Bell is bringing to life wild formats like edible slime and unique flavors like a Cubano inspired bagel bite. All are guaranteed to get your inner child smiling.” – David Banks, Senior Director of Marketing

Take a sneak peek at a few items from Bell’s flavor-packed menu that will transport consumer tastebuds to their ‘90s favorites:

Bell Embarks on 2022-2023 Regional IFT Roadshow

Bell Flavors & Fragrances Embarks on 2022-2023 Regional IFT Roadshow

 

Global Flavors and Fragrances Company Travels Cross-Country to Join The Science of Food Community’s Supplier Events

October 26, 2022 —

Bell Flavors & Fragrances, Inc. (Bell) is hitting the road to exhibit at the Institute of Food Technologists’ (IFT) 2022-2023 Regional Section Suppliers’ Events spanning coast-to-coast. IFT’s Regional Sections offer a way for networking with professionals steeped in the science of food to make strategic connections at a local level. These engaging events provide the opportunity for networking and education, and allow suppliers to debut their latest products and services supporting the science of food community.

Bell recently exhibited at the Minnesota Section IFT Annual Suppliers’ Expo (October 12) and the Intermountain Section IFT Symposium and Suppliers Night (October 19-21), showcasing menu items with bold fruit and spice flavor blends, including Urfa Chili Meyer Lemon Snack Mix, Caviar Lime Nimbu Soda, Ponzu Togarashi Popcorn, Chocolate Hazelnut Brownie Bites and Caviar Lime and Dragonfruit Taffy. Following recent events, the Bell team will be heading to upcoming 2022 IFT Regional Section Suppliers’ Events to debut their new citrus-infused menu:

  • November 1, 2022: Chicago Section IFT (CSIFT) Annual Suppliers Expo and Symposium (booth #308)
  • November 16-17, 2022: Longhorn Section IFT Suppliers Expo (booth #242)

“The Bell team is excited to embark on our Regional IFT Roadshow to connect with fellow industry colleagues and release our new menu featuring citrus flavors, like Ruby Red Grapefruit and Calamansi. Consumers continue to gravitate toward food and beverage items that contain natural flavors given a rising interest in clean label. And, with the stress of current events, they’re gravitating toward comfort and products that provide an uplifting mood boost. Given their vibrant colors and sweet-tart tastes, citrus is typically associated with feelings of joy, and we’re delivering a bit of happiness and a boost of flavor bite by bite, states Benjamin Stanley, CRC, Corporate Chef – Sweet Applications Manager.

Bell will be joining exhibitors on the Expo floor to showcase a new, citrus-infused menu, educational resources and a team of culinary experts. Across the globe, consumers continue to lean into citrus, with 52% of U.S. consumers indicating that they like or love it and one-quarter (25.7%) of U.S. menus featuring it. Citrus flavors resonate particularly well among those looking to support their immune systems and increase their vitamin C intake. Bell offers iconic, natural citrus flavors, such as Grapefruit, Mandarin Orange and Meyer Lemon in addition to specialty citrus flavors, like Buddha’s Hand and Meiwa Kumquat.  These flavors can be added to a multitude of applications, including confectionery, sauces and dips, beverages, snacks, sweet goods and more.

Inspired by consumer preferences and marketing data, Bell will showcase the following refreshing, citrus-flavored menu items:

Sudachi Snack Mix        

This snack mix features Bell’s Sudachi flavor to lend tart and fresh notes of a Japanese Sudachi lime. Sudachi is a small, round, green citrus fruit and is a specialty of the Tokushima Prefecture in Japan. Given its natural sourness, it’s not typically eaten as a fruit, but rather used as a flavor in place of lemon or lime.

This delicious mix also features Bell’s Wasabi flavor to impart a heat-driven spice while Bell’s Kokumi technology makes the snack mix more rich and complex.

 

 

Citrus Slice Gummy Medley: Buddha’s Hand, Calamansi and Blood Orange 

 Buddha’s Hand: Bell’s Buddha’s Hand flavor has a distinct flavor profile, boasting notes of lemon and yuzu with a sweet, lemon blossom aroma and offering a unique spin on the classic fruit slice candy.

 Calamansi: Bell’s Calamansi flavor displays blended notes of tart lemon, lime and orange. This citrus fruit is commonly used in Filipino and Southeastern Asian cuisines and can range from green to yellow to orange in color.

Blood Orange: Bell’s Blood Orange Citrus flavor has notes of navel orange with hints of tartness and floral fruits and is usually less acidic than a traditional orange.

 

Pink Limoncello Champagne Spritz Mocktail

Whether savored on a hot, summer day or enjoyed during a cozy dinner party with friends, this mocktail is sure to be refreshing and provide a mood boosting pick-me-up. The mashup of Bell’s natural Champagne Type flavor, Pink Lemon Type flavor extract and Lemon flavor (Sorrento type) deliver sweet-tart citrus notes with a hint of bubbly.

 

 

 

 

 

Ruby Red Grapefruit IPA Popcorn

This seasoned popcorn features Bell’s natural Ruby Red Grapefruit, IPA, and Hop flavors, which blend together to impart notes of fresh squeezed grapefruit and hoppy IPA beer. A refreshing spin on an everyday snack, this popcorn will inspire memories of sweet summertime and sipping on a cold beer.

 

 

 

 

 

Kumquat Madeleine

These mini madeleines are a condensed version of a traditional French madeleine. They’re flavored with Bell’s Kumquat and Vanilla flavors, giving them a distinct citrus note that is sweet with notes of sour and tang. Vanilla rounds out this sweet treat to elevate the cookie.

Bell’s presence at IFT’s Regional Section Suppliers’ Events will foster strong brand awareness and spark interest in delivering food and beverage products that spotlight citrus flavors. In tandem with citrus-infused samples, discussions around Bell’s proprietary technology capabilities and annual Spark trends will drive successful commercial connections among prospects and customers.

Global Flavors and Fragrances Company Joins 18K+ Ingredient Buyers and Suppliers at Upcoming Finished Products Conference

October 25, 2022 —

Bell Flavors & Fragrances, Inc. (Bell) will be heading to SupplySide West & Food Ingredients North America 2022 held in person from October 31 – November 4, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Bell will join over 18,000 ingredient buyers and suppliers from a variety of industries, including beverage, personal care, dietary supplement, functional food and sports nutrition. This conference brings together health and nutrition professionals and 1,300+ exhibitors to engage in educational and event programming and learn about the latest science, trends and strategies driving global finished products development. SupplySide West & Food Ingredients North America also provides companies the inspiration needed for growth and innovation, and the opportunity to network with industry colleagues in R&D, marketing, supply chain management, and more.

“The Bell team is heading to Supply Side West and Food Ingredients North America 2022 ready to inspire the industry with snackable creations and new flavor mashups, like our Ruby Red Grapefruit IPA Popcorn and Apple Cider Vinegar Gummy, incorporating flavors such as Apple Cider, Hibiscus and Hops. The demand for snack foods and gummies among consumers continues to increase, and products with functional benefits are experiencing strong growth. In the past, these product categories sacrificed on taste, however, recent innovation satisfies nutrition and taste preferences, while fitting into healthy lifestyles. We’re continuing to experiment with savory, citrus and indulgent flavors in the snack and gummy categories while keeping consumer desires and market data top-of-mind,” states Casey Schallert, Senior Corporate Chef.

These past few years have encouraged consumers to pause, reflect and reinvigorate their interest in taking positive steps to improving their personal health and creating the best version of themselves. In doing so, they’re turning to retail products to meet their anxiety support (+38%), mood and stress health (+24%) and sleep support (+37%) needs (Nielsen, 2022). Functional products, including gummies, have huge market potential – in fact, function claims in the gummy category have increased 171% between 2016-2021. And, among those who are looking to increase their vitamin C intake and boost immune support, citrus flavors continue to resonate particularly well. Bell offers a variety of natural citrus flavors (e.g., Meyer Lemon), savory flavors (e.g., Roasted Pork), and culinary mashup and orchard fruit flavors (e.g., Cardamom Apricot) that can be incorporated into a variety of applications, like snacks, confectionery and more.

This year, Bell’s booth (#1447) will feature educational resources and provide attendees the opportunity to connect with the culinary team and indulge in a new, citrus-infused, snackable menu:

Sudachi Snack Mix

This snack mix features Bell’s Sudachi flavor to lend tart and fresh notes of a Japanese Sudachi lime. Sudachi is a small, round, green citrus fruit and is a specialty of the Tokushima Prefecture in Japan. Given its natural sourness, it’s not typically eaten as a fruit, but rather used as a flavor in place of lemon or lime.
