fpde 1611.pngA shrinking middle class, new waves of immigrants, childless households, millennials! This is a time of great change in America's demographics (a theme that may have been playing in the background of this month's presidential election). Our November cover story reviews some of the key demographics, where they appear to be headed in the future and what food & beverage processors can do to meet these changing demands.

We also look at the current list of ingredients coming under fire by consumers; the beginning of plant compliance for the Food Safety Modernization Act; teaching old robots new tricks; plus our regular diet of news, commentary and new consumer products.
