Sweetener Technical Committee

Mission

Our goal is to foster an environment in which beverage industry professionals can share information relating to sweeteners; including their use, benefits, issues, storage, security, sustainability and transportation that promotes continuous improvement and environmental responsibility. It is a forum where sweetener manufacturers, beverage producers and supply chain providers can share mutually beneficial technologies that will enhance the beverage industry and where technical questions, ideas and problems related to sweeteners and their utilization can be openly presented with the expectation of receiving satisfactory discussions, answers or solutions.

Current Activities

The objectives / goals of the committee include:

  • To promote understanding of technical issues surrounding the application of individual sweeteners and or sweetener blends in beverages.
  • To promote the proper, safe and most effective usage of sweeteners in beverage systems.
  • To provide an environment which promotes best supply chain practices while providing transportation innovations to the beverage industry.

To that end, here are the latest activities of the Sweetener Technical Committee.

The Sweetener Technical Committee will present the latest technology and innovations at BevTech® 2017. Click here to preview the topics and the tentative agenda.
