May 07, 2018

Euralis Seeds participated at the Oil & Fats Congress which took place from 24th to 25th April in London.

The aim of this Congress was to provide a comprehensive overview of the edible & non-edible Oils & Fats industry by covering current processes and products together with a look at future trends. Indeed, global cooking oils and fats market size accounted for $60,399 million in the year 2015, and is expected to reach $65,260 million by 2022 worldwide which represents market perspectives for Euralis Seeds.

That is why, expert speakers are invited from all over the world to focus on raw materials and their processing concerning industrial and consumer products. Other subjects were mentioned such as quality control, labelling, nutrition, expectations from fat-based consumer products, health and nutritional trends.

Cedric Delavant, Market Development Manager for sunflower within Euralis, participated at this congress as speaker. He presented an overview of the sunflower market and its perspectives.

Increase in awareness of obesity and its association with heart diseases and diabetes is responsible for the hanging food trend among consumers. Oils & Fats manufacturers have focused on manufacturing healthier products, including low-cholesterol and low-carbohydrate foods to cater to the growing demand from health-conscious consumers.

Increase in consumption of Oils & Fats in households in food services drives the market. That is why today, Euralis’ genetics and research investment allow the company to accompany the market’s demand by proposing innovative and high yielding HO varieties for all technical segments.
