9th Starch World Asia
februari 11 @ 08:00 - februari 13 @ 17:00
According to MarketsandMarkets reports ,the modified starch market is projected to reach a value of USD 12.67 Billion by 2023 – driven by the rise in demand for functional food & beverage products, convenience food products and the increasing need for its usage as a renewable raw material in the production of packaging materials and biodegradable plastics.
In Thailand many native starch factories are already producing modified starch so much so that it has turned into a commodity product with intense price competition.
Meanwhile, the region continues to grapple with the severity of CMD (cassava mosaic disease).
While coping with the increasing demand for tapioca roots, farmers continue to bring tapioca trees from outside their own territory compounding the situation.
As more starch factories increase their capacity, how can the region cope with the threat of CMD ?
Most new starch factories capacity are very big require tapioca root of more than 2,400-3,000 m/t per day.
Thailand produces about 28-30 million ton of tapioca root per year and consumes more than 80-85 %.
Where will new sources of tapioca starch come from if supply from Asia is affected by CMD ?
What is the extent of the CMD damage and has it been brought under control ? What is going on regarding deployment of resistant materials ?
Developments in Waxy tapioca starch continues .SMS , the first company to commercialize waxy tapioca starch products will share recent breakthroughs and trends on clean food solution.
High fiber diets have been promoted over the past several years because of the potential health benefits they offer. Capturing on the growing fibre trends, how can the tapioca industry derive further value from the pulp fibre, which is a by-product of the starch milling process?
Waste generation is a key environmental issue in the cassava processing industry. In the quest for a circular economy, Thailand’s cassava industry today can be considered an industry trendsetter. In a very short period of time, 90% of the industry has adopted anaerobic pretreatment, representing a major reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
One such company that is showing a good example of a sustainable concept is FD Green which is part of the Ajinomoto Group
The group produces amino acids from sugars/ starches through fermentation process and a large amount of organic by-products are also produced. The company that has strong commitments to protect the environment established a Bio-Cycle concept to make use of these organic byproducts for sustainable amino acid production. These by-products are returned to farms mainly as fertilizer
Attend CMT’s 9th Annual Starch World ASIA in Bangkok and also opt for the tour to visit the Ajinomoto Amino-Acid factory in Ayutthaya as well as have a glimpse on the surrounding cassava plantations.
