2024 International Production and Processing Expo

Ingredients Tilley News

IPPE 2024 is an exceptional opportunity to connect with more than 30,000 expo visitors from more than 100 countries. Every year, IPPE in Atlanta serves as a vital source of connection and education, drawing some of the brightest minds in the meat and poultry industry. We relish the chance to learn, connect and lend our expertise in specialty ingredients and distribution.

Why We’re Attending the IPPE Trade Show

Tilley Distribution’s global warehousing and shipping capabilities and robust specialty ingredients catalog make us a solutions-based partner. We’re constantly reassessing and investing in our capacity to serve clients. Continued education is critical to that mission, and IPPE offers more than 80 hours of industry-focused programming. These seminars are led by respected leaders, scientists and public health officials and pack a tremendous amount of value into just a few hours.

A Dynamic Market Warrants Discussion

Changing consumer preferences is sure to be the talk of the expo floor this year. Per-capita chicken consumption topped 100 pounds in 2023 for the first time as American households replaced beef with poultry products. Bird flu, feed prices, and transportation costs have accelerated the shift, with large manufacturers adjusting in real time to mitigate the impact of changing demand.  

While meat alternatives have lost market share in 2023, new products like cultured meats will continue to be top-of-mind for suppliers and processors alike. Tilley Distribution welcomes the opportunity to work with those in the alternative and cultured meat markets to support their ingredient requirements.
