Highlights from Food Ingredients 2023.

As a leading player in the world of flavours, our recent participation in Food Ingredients Asia 2023 (Fi Asia 2023) was nothing short of extraordinary. Known to most, Fi Asia 2023 provided us with a platform to showcase our commitment to flavour innovation, sustainability, and meaningful industry connections. Let’s take you on a journey through the highlights of our unforgettable experience at Fi Asia 2023.

Setting the Stage: Health and Nutrition at the Forefront

The theme for our exhibition this year was “Health and Nutrition”. This choice was informed by the burgeoning market for functional and fortified products, as well as the growing consumer demand for healthier (lower sugar and salt) food options. It was evident that the food industry’s landscape is evolving, with health-conscious consumers driving a transformation towards more nutritious and mindful choices.

Showcasing Innovative Solutions: A Glimpse into our Exhibition

To align with our theme, our exhibition showcased an array of foods developed to meet the evolving needs of health-conscious consumers:

Showcase Description
Fortified Jelly Strips Jelly treats in a rectangle shape, packaged in a compact and handy sachet.

Featured 3 different fortifications: Collagen, Bilberry and Fiber.

Fortified Soft Serve Creamy soft serve fortified with fiber.

Served with sauces of your choice: Yuzu, Butterscotch and Brown Sugar.

Low Sugar Ready-To-Drink (RTD) Tea with Plant-based Foam Refreshing RTD green and black tea beverages, boasting lower sugar formulation and a plant-based foam topping.

Low Sugar Energy Drinks An alternative to high sugar energy boosters. Features still energy drinks packaged in an aluminum can.

Low Sodium Plant-based Gyoza Plant-based meat gyoza, pan-fried to a crispy golden brown colour, topped with gyoza sauce.


Through the showcase, we demonstrated the power of our flavours to complement and mask the off-notes that are often associated with fortified, plant-based and reduced sugar/salt foods. Our holistic approach to taste solutions was on full display, showing that health and flavour can go hand-in-hand. Reach us at or click here to explore our flavours in ready concepts.

In a world where consumers are increasingly health-conscious, our flavours act as the bridge between nutritious choices and great taste experiences. Whether it’s enhancing the taste of low-sodium plant-based gyoza or elevating the flavours of low-sugar RTD tea, our flavours demonstrated their versatility and ability to meet the evolving demands of the modern palate, reaffirming our commitment to craft flavours that delight the senses while aligning with sustainability goals.

Technical Seminars: A Resounding Success

Another highlight of our participation in this Fi Asia 2023 was the Plant-based and Health and Nutrition Technical Seminars that KH Roberts hosted. Both seminar sessions exceeded all expectations with a record-high turnout. More than just technical seminars, they were knowledge-sharing sessions that left attendees with valuable insights into the evolving world of plant-based dairy and health and nutrition, their latest trends and the transformative power of flavours in their specific application.

Both seminars were not just about information; it was a dynamic exchange of ideas, challenges and solutions. From aspiring startups to industry giants, attendees came together to explore the endless possibilities that Plant-based Dairy and Health and Nutrition have to offer. These seminar sessions truly embodied our commitment to knowledge sharing and driving positive change in the food industry.

Building Meaning Connections

One of the most rewarding aspects of Fi Asia 2023 was the opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals – we had the privilege of engaging with aspiring food manufacturers looking to make their mark and industry leaders seeking innovative solutions to meet the evolving demands of consumers.

Looking Ahead: Crafting Future Flavours

As we reflect on our journey on Fi Asia 2023, we are more determined than ever to redefine flavour innovation and sustainability. Our dedication to knowledge sharing, building meaningful connections and creating extraordinary sensorial experiences for consumers will continue to be the driving forces behind our endeavours.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who joined us this Fi Asia 2023. Stay tuned for more exciting developments as we continue to push the boundaries of flavour and explore new frontiers.
