At the Global New Products Pavilion, attendees can learn what's new in packaged food, drinks and foodservice. Mintel's renowned new product expert, Lynn Dornblaser, will give fast-paced presentations daily on three of the most exciting trends in food and drink:

- Pure simplicity: The rise of clean labels—Learn how ingredient labels with familiar contents can influence consumers' shopping habits, and see where organic, all natural or "free from" formulations fit in.
- Functional food and drink: Latest trends and opportunities—Around the globe, functional ingredients differ greatly, so get ahead of the competition by understanding the latest global innovations in functional food and drink.
After the presentations, attendees can see, touch, taste and smell products that illustrate the latest global innovations. Mintel experts will be on hand to answer questions about emerging product trends, both at the Global New Products Pavilion and at booth #1674.
