Dates: The fundamentals of a trending fruit

Dates are becoming a popular fruit in retail and the food industry. People are looking for healthy alternatives to refined sweets. In many trending food products, such as paleo snack bars and raw pastries, dates are the main ingredient. And ethnic customers are looking for dates to fit their cultural and religious diets.
This trend will grow further with many new varieties entering the market, adding more possibilities to serve different markets. This conference will provide practical information about sourcing, using and commercialising dates in retail, food service and the food industry.
