4th Starch World Europe heads to Copenhagen with Site Visits to Starch factories and Paper Mills, Insights on Potato, Organic Starches

CMT's 4th Starch World Europe, on 16-18 October, 2019 in Copenhagen, focuses on starches from potatoes and green bananas, role of CRISPR, polyols, organic starches and proteins production.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Sept. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Organized by Centre for Management Technology (CMT) and supported by Starch Europe plus Larsson as Platinum sponsor, the 2019 summit is held in potato production hub -- Denmark. Aptly, the event starts off with a site visit to Lyckeby Starch Factory -- providing valuable information on potato farming and starch production, followed by a tour of Larsson's head office and manufacturing plant in Bromolla and Stora Enso Pulp & Paper Mill facility in Nymolla.

In the program, Mathias Samuelsson, Head of Sales and Development, Lyckeby Starch, shares details of 'CRISPR-Cas9 Technique for Sustainable Production of Potato Starch' while Corine Kroft, CSR Manager, Duynie Holding (Duynie Group); and Christiaan Oei, Commercial Director, Novidon, presents on 'Creating New Value from Side Stream Potato Starch'.

Key speakers are:

  • Simon Bentley, MD, Commoditia - Outlook for EU Starch: Crops, Products and Trade
