Transparency is a basic concept of the clean label phenomena. Consumers want to know what is in their food and where it came from. This presentation touched on unexpected research findings on consumer attitudes toward organic, non-GMO and other food traits. Using one certification process as groundwork for what is important in ingredient supply-chain documentation, he covered five key requirements that must be met when products make non-GMO, gluten free, plant-based or other “clean label” claims. Using these core concepts in supply-chain management helps ensure that food manufacturers know what is in their products, which is good for their company and its customers.
