The Moderator, Mike Neu, SVP, Cultures & Enzymes, Chr. Hansen, Inc lead the panel in a healthy discussion of the importance of innovation for survival and the varied approaches to innovation by The Ice Cream Club®, Kraft Foods Group and Sargento Foods. This Session received tremendous audience participation in the form of numerous questions submitted to the Moderator during the discussion for the three panelist to address. Richard Draper stated that, "The Ice Cream Club® approach to innovation is pretty straightforward; we study the competition, many present in the room today, we try to figure out what they can't do or won't do and then charge forward on those items in an effort to survive. We'll never be the low-cost producer so we focus on the hard-to make flavors, value added flavors and multiple ingredient flavors. We still fill our tubs, one at a time, hand-filled, to replicate the artisan style we started with, all be it but on a much bigger scale." So much industry buzz was created by this session that Cheese Market News ran this story as its cover story in the February 8, 2013 edition.
