Jan. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- Kantha Shelke, Ph.D., a respected consultant for the food and beverage industry and owner of Corvus Blue, LLC, discusses the importance of color in food and beverage products. “Color is an important element in foods in nature,” Shelke tells DDW. “It is increasingly becoming a part of practically all processed foods today.” Using natural sources to color food and beverage products is nothing new, as Shelke points out during her interview. “For millennia, people have been crafting foods with color from hibiscus, turmeric, grapes/grape skin, tomatoes, carrots, etc…” Recently, we’ve seen a trend towards increased demand for natural coloring solutions for food and beverage products. As demand for natural colors continues to grow, how can the food and beverage industry achieve sustainability? According to Shelke, “Food companies can help achieve sustainability by learning the intricate art and science of natural colors and learning how to formulate with colors to create food products that are honestly healthful.” To see the full interview, please visit http://www.ddwilliamson.com/kantha-shelke.

Bheki Nkwanyana, DDW Plant Manager of its Swaziland facility, shares his insights into how the food and beverage industry is making improvements in third party audits, certifications and food safety. “There’s a huge emphasis in making sure that food purchasing companies are compliant with the food safety systems,” Nkwanyana says. “For example, HACCP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points) has taken a big movement in the African region, mainly turned by the European market, I’d say, but while adopting the same legal requirements.” In fact, as Nkwanyana points out, DDW has already noticed an increased push for compliance among our suppliers as well as our customers. This is just one way we’re seeing improvements in the food and beverage industry as we start the new year! To see the full interview, please visit http://www.ddwilliamson.com/expertanswers.
