BASF to discuss the future of food at foodpro

BASF offers innovative chemistry solutions for customers in nearly all sectors, and almost every country in the world. Within its portfolio is a wide range of solutions for the food and beverage industry.

Investing €1.9b ($2.82b) into research and development in 2016 alone, the German company is looking at the future and how it can help its customers meet this global challenge and stay ahead of the trends. Amongst its offerings, BASF supports product development with proven, beneficial ingredients and also has a range of construction and building solutions that help facilities meet increased industry regulations.

“We understand the challenges of maintaining food production facilities efficiently. BASF has a range of industrial flooring solutions, such as Ucrete the world’s toughest floor, that demonstrates extraordinarily high resistance to mechanical, chemical and thermal stress, and depending on the layer thickness, are able to withstand temperatures ranging from -40°C to 130°C,” explained Matt Ross, Head of Construction Australia and New Zealand at BASF.

The company recently opened a new technical application laboratory for its nutrition and health business, located at Singapore Polytechnic. The new facility, Newtrition Lab Asia Pacific, will focus on providing analytical service and co-developing products with customers in the region, catering to diverse markets across Asia Pacific to provide the right nutrients to the right people at the right time.

With one third of the world’s food wasted, it’s important that we get the most out of what we have available. Chemistry can make a difference when it comes to packaging solutions.

The company is a leading innovation partner, manufacturer and supplier of additives for the plastics industry such as ultraviolet (UV) light stabilisers, antioxidants and process stabilizers, organic and inorganic pigments, effect pigments, and other additives.

Packaging can be made of biodegradable plastics formed partly with renewable raw materials and after use they can be disposed of and composted with the rest of the food waste. Reducing the weight of packaging is another way of reducing environmental impact as well as improving logistics costs. The company works with customers around the world to develop these solutions.
