As 2018 begins, Food Processing's January issue is chock full of outlook stories for the new year. Instead of a traditional rundown of trends, our cover story looks at them as resolutions every food & beverage processor should make. Our Product Development section leads off with flavor and ingredient trends for the new year. And our Plant Operations section includes our 17th annual Manufacturing Outlook Survey, which finds optimism among production people at its highest point in the history of this survey.
We also inaugurate a new feature, The Team Story, which takes a cross-functional look at a food or beverage category...in this case, snack foods. Plus our regular departments of news, commentary and interesting new consumer products.
