ELC becomes EU Specialty Food Ingredients

ELC is rebranding to become EU Specialty Food Ingredients. Together with our new logo, this new abbreviation speaks for itself and will make our sector easier recognisable as THE voice of specialty food ingredients in Europe. 

EU Specialty Food Ingredients represents its members by:

- Engaging with authorities for the continued development of a fair regulatory environment;

- Being a transparent and credible partner, committed to science and knowledge sharing;

- Developing understanding of the role and benefits that specialty food ingredients play today, starting with food manufacturers.

And thus: increasing trust in specialty food ingredients towards the relevant stakeholders.
