Marketing/New Products

Vienna - AGRANA, one of Austria's leading food and industrial goods groups, will
be presenting new products from its range of fruit preparations and starches at
the international food industry trade fair IFT Food Expo in New Orleans (Stand
2159, 3 - 5 June 2019). Many innovative ingredients are presented at this annual
trade fair which attracts around 17,000 visitors from all over the world.

Current nutritional and consumer trends such as "plant-based nutrition" and
"holistic health" are also reflected in AGRANA's product development work. In
the area of fruit preparations, for example, AGRANA will be presenting its
latest solutions for plant-based dairy products in the form of spoonable and
drinkable yoghurts as well as ice cream at the IFT Food Expo. As the Number 1
worldwide, with a market share of 35%, AGRANA's fruit preparations contain top
quality fruit which is either puréed or diced and used in dairy products or in
the ice cream and bakery products industries. In addition to fruit preparations,
AGRANA also offers innovative preparations with "brown flavours" such as
caramel, coffee or vanilla as well as so-called inclusions (e.g. chocolate
balls). Besides dairies, AGRANA also supplies quick service restaurants and food
service companies. Products are developed by AGRANA in close cooperation with
its customers in order to reflect local market requirements and the latest
trends. Based on a global network of product developers located in over 20
countries around the world, AGRANA launches more than 1,000 new products every

In its starch segment, in which the raw materials corn, potatoes and wheat are
processed into diverse starch-based products for the food and confectionery
industry as well as for technical developments, AGRANA will be presenting its
innovation AGENANOVA® in addition to its extensive portfolio of organic
specialities. This gluten-free, clean label starch, i.e. one which is chemically
unmodified, is a special carbohydrate which combines an exceptionally low level
of sweetness with excellent solubility and acts as a long-lasting source of
energy for the body. This innovative combination of special properties make
AGENANOVA® an ideal source of energy in food products for sportsmen and women as
well as baby food and clinical nutrition; products ranging from low-sugar power
snacks to full-flavoured energy drinks.

"We are delighted to be presenting our products at one of the most important
trade fairs for the food industry in the USA. We see major potential in the US
market as a result not only of our innovative and diverse portfolio of fruit
preparations, produced at our four fruit preparation plants located in the USA,
but also due to our leading role in organic and Non-GMO starches for the food
industry," stresses AGRANA CEO Johann Marihart.

AGRANA adds value to agricultural commodities to produce top quality foodstuffs
and numerous industrial upstream products. Around 9,200 personnel working at 58
production facilities worldwide generate consolidated annual revenues of around
EUR 2.4 billion. The Group was founded in 1988, is the global leader in fruit
preparations and also a major producer of fruit juice concentrates in Europe as
well as being a key manufacturer of customised starch products and organic
ethanol in its Starch segment. AGRANA is also one of today's leading sugar
companies in Central and Eastern Europe.
