October 2018 Issue
The internet and e-commerce afford food and beverage processors new opportunities to market, and maybe even sell, direct to consumers. It's been a tough go, and nobody seems to have hit a home run, but our October cover story looks at small success stories at eight of the leading companies (Coca-Cola, Hershey, General Mills, Nestle, Danone, PepsiCo, Campbell and Kellogg).
October Food Processing also has stories on spices replacing heat; opportunities in addressing digestive health; the manufacturing complications of making "clean" snacks; and form/fill/seal machines. Plus our monthly departments on news, new consumer products and John Stanton's Market View column.
