LONDON, January 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
In response to the growing demand for healthy and nutritious bakery products, Food ingredients, the world's leading organiser of business networking and professional development events for the food ingredients industry, has put together an important annual meeting on improving bakery ingredients selection and application.
With the Bakery Innovation Europe conference less than a month away on 19-20 February 2014 in Munich, places are filling up fast with companies including Norgesmøllene, Bakkersland, Tate and Lyle, ILLVA DISARONNO, Besler Gıda Ve Kimya, Ferrero, Polarbröd, Bolletje, EUROBISCO and many more already attending.
European bakery manufacturers Fazer, Warburtons and Nairn's Oatcakes will be amongst the expert speakers presenting their insights into the bakery ingredients landscape and the innovations that are helping them meet changing consumer demands for healthier and nutritious bakery products.
Food Ingredients have picked the brains of some of the key speakers to get some exclusive insight ahead of the event. Colin Kelly, Director of R&D at Warburtons talked to us about the top challenges faced by the bakery industry when trying to develop innovative products: "firstly I would ask around the appetite and competence of the industry to be truly innovative. I see a lot of very good product development globally, but not too much in the way of truly innovative products. I think we are seeing work on true innovation increasing, and a lot of this work being led by ingredient suppliers - particularly around the themes of health and natural".
The Bakery Innovation Europe conference will examine these key areas of innovation from gluten and allergen free, to sodium, sugar and fat reduction and innovating with added-value ingredients such at oats. Conference chair, Wayne Morley, Head of Food Innovation at Leatherhead Food Research, exclaimed that "I'm really pleased and excited to be chairing the inaugural Bakery innovation Europe conference... (where delegates will) learn about the latest developments and trends in this really important sector of the food industry".
Delegates can enhance their time onsite by attending the Post-Conference Seminar - Innovating with Oats on the day after the main conference. The recognition of the health benefits of oats by regulatory authorities in Europe has led to an increased use of oats in bakery. This in-depth seminar developed especially for Fi Conferences will focus on the market and uses of oats in bakery, with an emphasis on the health benefits of beta-glucan, the suitability of oats for people with coeliac disease and the development of innovative, nutritional products to boost bakery sales.

Once the decision has been made to move part or all of a workload to the cloud, a methodology for selecting that workload needs to be established. How do you move to the cloud? What does the discovery, assessment and planning look like? What workloads make sense? Which cloud model makes sense for each workload? What are the considerations for how to select the right cloud model? And how does that fit in with the overall IT transformation?

The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits.

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...

With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impac...

There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.

However, communication seems to be the common denominator of the many challenges that project management methodologies intend to resolve. In this respect, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can be viewed as powerful tools for managing projects. Few research papers have focused on the way...

As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, Netflix and so on is at the heart of CloudFoundry – a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS...

In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally. DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...
