Must Read

Cargill has unveiled a range of new products under its NatureFresh Professional brand and showcased innovative products and solutions curated for the Indian Food and Bakery industry at AAHAR 2024, a fair for international food and hospitality, which commenced on March 7, 2024. Under the theme ‘The Whole World of Possibilities’, Cargill is introducing its innovative applications and products across key categories such as Bakery, Confectionery, Chocolates, and Convenience Foods.

One of the highlights is the launch of Chocolate Indulgence products under the NatureFresh Professional brand, including block chocolates, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips. Crafted based on extensive research among India’s top bakers, these products come in four variants – Intense Dark, Dark, Milk, and White – offering unique flavors with high-quality cocoa and a creamy texture. Leveraging Cargill’s advanced DoMiReCo processing technology, these products ensure consistent high quality meeting the expectations of Indian bakers. Available in slabs and chips form, these products have a shelf life of 12-15 months and can be used in a wide range of bakery and ice cream applications such as ganache, mousse, filling, garnishing, molding, and enrobing.

Moreover, the company showcased a selection of food solutions demonstrating its proprietary research capabilities. This includes Modified Starch, a functional ingredient for sauces and dressings like Tomato Ketchup and mayonnaise. Developed using Cargill’s continuous innovation capabilities, these modified starch solutions help products maintain viscosity throughout their shelf life, ensuring uniformity and resilience against acid and heat. Cargill also presented its trans-fat-free premium bakery fats with applications in cookies, puffs, and cakes, available in three variants – Elite, Classic & Master under the NatureFresh Professional brand.

Additionally, Cargill presented an array of novel recipes, functional fats, and solutions for cakes, cookies, bread, Danish pastries, and peanut butter, primarily in the bakery category. These applications were developed to meet and exceed consumer demands for superior quality, flavor, and texture.

The booth attracted strong footfall amidst the launch of its chocolate products from the bakery and food industry. Cargill also showcased innovative recipes in Bakery and Convenience Food from its “BakeZone” at its Innovation Center in Gurgaon, using their differentiated ingredient products.

Simon George, President, Cargill India, and Managing Director of Food Solutions South Asia, said, “As we continue to grow together with our partners and customers in India, we are inspired by the exciting new opportunities ahead. Bringing together our global expertise, deep local market insights, and a strong innovation portfolio, we will continue to create safe, healthy, and innovative food solutions for the Indian market. Through AAHAR, we aim to widen our reach to customers and provide comprehensive food solutions to them.’’
